Smart energy systems in cities and regions

This thematic series aims to provide readers from research, private and political sectors with unique focused information, covering different aspects of the utilization of nonconventional biomass. It should, in particular, address biofuels production, biofuel value chain modelling and optimisation, integration of liquid and gaseous biofuels into households and the transport sector, as well as research in the field of bio-refinery systems and integration of poly-generation technologies based on biomass sources into the energy system. Furthermore, it aims to cover the influences and challenges with regard to system integration, the evaluation of potential environmental impacts and the analysis of the policy framework of nonconventional biomass utilization.
