Renewable energy systems based on biomass feedstocks need abundant supplies of feedstock, not only to maintain the physical facility with enough material to process, but also enough excess feedstock to ensure that there is a healthy competition among suppliers to keep prices competitive. Renewable energy plants of all kinds, that can utilize more than one kind of agriculture feedstock, enjoy the advantage of being able to pick and choose the feedstock that is more desirable from both a pricing and process efficiency prospective.
Being able to determine the amounts of feedstocks available within a defined geographic region requires not only an in-depth academic understanding of production practices, but also a practical knowledge of the many and varied nuances that can occur in agriculture operations. Overlaying all this, is a complete understanding of the sociological drivers within the agricultural community.
