Pathways for agro-bioenergy transition in Ukraine

Voytenko, Yuliya LU (2012) In Biofuels, Bioproducts and Biorefining 6(2). p.124-134
Abstract
Economies in transition (EiTs) (e. g. Ukraine (UA), Belarus, Moldova, etc.) are signifi cantly dependent on

energy imports, and require revitalization of their agricultural sectors and improvements in the state of the environment. Development of national bioenergy potentials can contribute to the solutions to these problems. However, EiTs face technical, political, fi nancial, and capacity-based constraints in their transition to bioenergy. Biomass can potentially deliver 18% (1 EJ yr-1) in UA’s energy balance while the current fi gure is only 0.7%. The bioenergy sector is not established in UA. This work identifi es facilitating and constraining factors for the transition to agro-bioenergy in UA, and suggests strategies to pursue... (More)

Biomass can potentially deliver 18% (1 EJ yr-1) in UA’s energy balance while the current fi gure is only 0.7%. The bioenergy sector is not established in UA. This work identifi es facilitating and constraining factors for the transition to agro-bioenergy in UA, and suggests strategies to pursue such transition. A conceptual framework – agro-biomass framework for organisation and action (ABF) – developed by the author applies a technology innovation system (TIS) approach, which is expanded to include four categories of analysis:

actors and networks, natural resources, technical resources, and non-technical components. Seven TIS functions are analyzed in relation to each category within UA’s bioenergy sector. The results are presented as constraining and facilitating factors for bioenergy in UA in relation to these functions. Strategies for the enhancement of each function are formulated, and recommendations to a variety of stakeholders to facilitate the transition to agro-bioenergy in UA are made. (Less)
