APO Wood Energy Planning, RWEDP
This paper discusses the Long-range Energy Alternatives Planning model(LEAP), and provides exercises on data analysis for energy planning, focussing on wood energy. The exercises are used by RWEDP during LEAP tutorials for its member countries.
LEAP is an energy planning model that covers energy demand, transformation and supply. It uses a simulation approach to represent the current energy situation for a given area and to develop forecasts for the future under certain assumptions. LEAP is very appropriate for wood energy planning because it contains a land use module that can be used to assess available wood resources.
