Abstract This deliverable provides a short description of all updates made to the BVCM toolkit in Phase 2. The Phase 2 updates to the BVCM toolkit can be broadly grouped into 4 types: improvement to the optimisation model, improvement in model settings, improvement in the technology representation, and improvement in the resources representation.

These updates constitute a significant improvement to the BVCM toolkit. In general, the updates:
  • ensure a wider, more detailed representation of possible bioenergy pathways
  • raise the overall data quality and level of confidence in the model
  • improve the user interface
  • increase the options for use cases and scenarios
Overall, the BVCM model delivered at the end of Phase 2 provides a very robust tool to identify promising resource - technology combinations to be considered for acceleration by theETI.
