Liberalized energy markets do not take account of the climate change impacts of fossil fuels, so energy policy interventions are necessary to achieve greenhouse gas reductions. Bioenergy systems can contribute to these reductions, but deployment is generally low. The application of traditional energy policy instruments to bioenergy systems is complicated by the fact that greenhouse gas emissions are incurred in the supply chain rather than at the point of use, by competing uses for the raw materials and the requirement to minimize other significant negative ecological and socioeconomic impacts. This work examines the policy options for delivering desirable bioenergy systems.
