Market Conditions for Bioenergy in the European Union: Facing Barriers and Finding Ways to Success
- The International Institute for Industrial Environmental Economics
Taking an innovative approach to barrier analysis, the Environment and Socio-economics Work Package decided to evaluate theoretical barriers in a set of case studies to verify the relevance of different barriers. The procedure sketched for the barriers analysis involved several steps. First, formulate theoretical barriers expected to be important and manageable. Second, check if the barriers explain the difference between success and unrealised potential in the set of case studies. Third, if the barriers are not sufficient to explain the difference, return to the theoretical barriers. Fourth, otherwise, check if the understanding of the critical barriers is able to assist in transforming case studies from unrealised potential to success.
