A Model for Cost- and Greenhouse Gas Optimal Material and Energy Allocation of Biomass and Hydrogen


BENOPT, an optimal material and energy allocation model is presented, which is used to assess cost-optimal and/or greenhouse gas abatement optimal allocation of renewable energy carriers across power, heat and transport sectors. A high level of detail on the processes from source to end service enables detailed life-cycle greenhouse gas and cost assessments. Pareto analyses can be performed, as well as thorough sensitivity analyses. The model is designed to analyse optimal biomass and hydrogen usage, as a complement to integrated assessment and power system models
