BEFS Rapid Appraisal

The BEFS Rapid Appraisal (RA) consists of a set of easily applicable methodologies and user-friendly tools which allow countries to get an initial indication of their sustainable bioenergy potential and of the associated opportunities, risks and trade-offs.


The BEFS RA tools assist policy makers/technical officers to understand:

  • Energy, agriculture and food security in the context of their country.
  • Viable sustainable bioenergy options.
  • Bioenergy options which require more in-depth analysis, e.g. through the BEFS Detailed Analysis.
