Abstract

The European Community is dedicating a growing effort towards the development of renewable energy resources market and in particular to bio-fuels. General public is now aware green biomass represents a local renewable resource, which is widely available on the territory and exploitable under environmentally sustainable criteria for an ecologically sound economic development. Generally, the problem is to evaluate where to concentrate the institutional action for the promotion of the renewable energy sector. The goal of this paper is to develop a methodology able to analyse the feasibility of the biomass energy chain. In particular, we have analysed two aspects: the availability of resources and the enterprise structures. While the first aspect is tied to the local situation (forest and agricultural areas), the second aspect has a general relevance for the Italian mountain context.
