Abstract This report has identified that between 1.0-1.8 Mha of land is potentially available for conversion to bioenergy, of which the two largest contributors are by utilizing the surplus area of arable crops by sending surplus production for first generation (1G) bioenergy processing as demand dictates (314,000-494,000 ha) and improved utilization of grassland (350,000-700,000 ha). The range in values represents the uncertainty around figures, with the lower value representing the most likely land area to be converted, whilst the higher area represents the potential area available for conversion if the market drivers are sufficient to convert all identified spared land to bioenergy production.
