DescriptionAs expected, currently and for years to come, the demand for energy will increase, especially for transportation. Other increases will be for natural gas for residential and industriai use, and for renewables as a response to environmental awareness. However, for the short term, economics dictate energy source selection and use; bioenergy has not been competitive. There are the extraneous factors such as environmental constraints and reduction of subsidies in the Conservation Reserve Program that might accelerate the use of biomass for energy. There may come more incentives to change to bioenergy.
