Biogas and EU's 2020 targets: Evidence from a regional case study in Italy

Energy Policy, 2017, vol. 109, issue C, 510-519

Abstract: The provision of renewable energy by agriculture—so-called agroenergy—is a key element of the Europe 2020 Strategy and has sparked public and research debates on the bio-based economy. Hot topics involve direct and indirect land use change and the ability of agroenergy to foster or hinder food and energy security. Worldwide research has dealt with these and other issues associated with the sustainability of the diffusion of agroenergy generation systems, but the subject is still open.
