Consequences of bioenergy production in Denmark – University of Copenhagen

Consequences of large scale bioenergy production in Denmark on biodiversity, forestry, and agriculture in the context of sustainable development

The project assesses the impacts on sustainable development and ecosystem services of Danish bioenergy production and consumption derived from the 100% renewable energy scenarios developed by the Danish Commission on Climate Change Policy, and for additional bioenergy scenarios emerging from Danish participation in global climate change stabilization policies.

A key hypothesis of the project is that large scale bioenergy production and consumption in Denmark will affect sustainable development and ecosystem services, and well coordinated cross sectoral management policies therefore need to be applied. Following that, the aim of the project is to develop and apply a framework for integrated resource management across the energy sector, forestry, and agriculture.
