Abstract

The modern world is faced with a multitude of environmental and socio-economic issues, stemming from the way that energy is used and converted. Climate change due to anthropogenic activities (use of fossil fuel resources and its associated CO2 equivalent emissions), has greatly affected humankind and nature in general, by leading to extreme weather phenomena and reducing the quality of life especially of people belonging to vulnerable communities. The unsustainable practices of the energy sector and the increased energy and materials needs of the public, have brought the situation to a point where immediate action is required to mitigate the effects of climate change. Furthermore, as became apparent by studying the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and the Russo-Ukrainian war, the global energy market is heavily exposed to price and availability shocks that have a significant negative impact on the quality of life of people globally also in the very short term. Overall, the transition of the energy sector to a green and renewable alternative is essential and bioenergy constitutes a crucial piece of the puzzle of such a sustainable future....
