Defining the Project Proposal

A bioenergy project proposal should clearly define location and size of the project; resource demands; infrastructure required for transport; conversion technologies and preliminary cost estimates, and other key elements of the project.

The project proponent (private or public) must provide a clear outline with the detail required naturally increasing with increasing project scale or scope. A high level of detail and comprehensive analysis should also be required when there are risks of irreversible ecological or environmental damages. Some of the key issues with defining appropriate and comprehensive project proposals are covered in this section.
