Abstract

•We assessed the bioenergy potential of conservation areas and roadsides in Flanders.•An area of 31,055ha produces 203kton DM of herbaceous biomass annually.•The associated biomass supply chain was optimized with OPTIMASS in four scenarios.•The net energy balance of the studied systems was 7GJha−1 in the 2020 scenarios.•We show that this biomass can play a role to meet the increased biomass demand in 2020.
