Resource Ownership: Types and Impacts

The key determinant in the success of any bioenergy scheme is often the reliability and cost of feedstock supply.

In this section, the significance of resource ownership and the types of ownership schemes are reviewed and their implications in terms of the distribution of socio-economic costs and benefits are discussed.
