Bioenergy Mass-Energy Balance Model

Abstract

The Mass-Energy Balance model was developed by Aston University and has been designed to be used as a scoping tool and not a detailed process simulation. The model allows to investigate commercially viable opportunities for the development of modern bioenergy technologies for electricity and/or heat generation in the output range 10 kWe to 5 MWe from regional feedstocks with known properties. Typical plant configurations suited to the feedstock and energy demand can be modelled. The model as part of the ‘Bioenergy for Sustainable Local Energy Services and Energy Access in Africa - Phase 2’ (BSE-AA2) project, funded with UK aid from the UK government as part of the TEA programme. The model forms a part of a suite of research tools and products developed under BSEAA2 to enable project developers, practitioners, investors and other stakeholders to make decisions regarding the technical and commercial viability of investing in bioenergy technology within seven shortlisted industries, referred to as ‘demand sectors’.
