In this report a set of ECN models, used within Biomass Futures Project, to quantitatively estimate how the different biomass resources can be allocated in a cost-effective way to the different energy uses is described. This biomass allocation is based on an interaction between three ECN submodels within an iterative scheme. The RESolve-biomass model is the central model for biomass allocation, covering bioelectricity, bio-heat and biofuels. However, RESolve-E and RESolve-H deal with the electricity sector(including CHP) and the heating sector respectively in a more dedicated way. Therefore an interaction between the three models is necessary for a robust quantitative assessment of the bioenergy deployment in the EU27. An overview of the interaction scheme is given and the three models are briefly described.
