Sectors and Applications

One reason why bioenergy as a renewable energy sector is special is because demand sectors vary a great deal.  Bioenergy applications cross all sectors and energy carriers, which is quite different from other energy sources and fuels which may be limited to one carrier or one sector. The main sectors of interest for bioenergy include households/institutional, village, heat and power, transport and industry, as discussed in this section. Depending on the economic structure of the country or region, one could also define other key sectors or sub-sectors such as agriculture or mining or forestry.
