520 This book focuses primarily on the advantages and
implications of sustainable bioenergy production in terms
of ensuring a more sustainable world despite its growing
energy demands. It addresses a new concept that focuses on
the interactions between different uses of agricultural
land (for example, agriculture for food, forage or energy
and nature conservation) and their ecological, economic
and societal impacts. This research concept provides new
insights into the competition for resources and the
synergies between different land uses. Until recently, the
transition towards renewable energy has been generally
misunderstood as only an economic demand, rather than as a
means to gain various social and ecological advantages.
Today biomass can be produced to generate energy and
renewable raw materials, while simultaneously benefitting
soil resources, water resources and biodiversity. The
transition to a ́觲eeneŕ頥conomy is an important
precondition in order to achieve the sustainable
development of societies. To develop a modern, forward-
looking energy supply from biomass, such as biomass for
heat and power generation, and liquid biofuels for
transport, there should be a balance between the amount of
biomass required for food production and for material
purposes. Crop types, production methods and conversion
technologies need to be matched with local conditions
within the different landscapes to establish a national
transformation plan, and to reduce the i ncreasing land-
use competition between food/fodder versus energy crop
production, as well as the use of forests for energy.
Rethinking the linkages between bioenergy, climate change,
land use and water requires an integrated assessment of
the energy, land and water nexus. This book highlights
research aimed at providing an integrated approach to
sustainable bioenergy development and seeks to improve
peoplé鳠understanding of bioenergý鳠potentials for the
future. It will be of interest not only to those involved
in sustainable energy, but also to environmental planners,
agriculture and soil specialists, and environmental policy
