The BioEnergy Atlas provides three synthesis reports, dealing with
(1) Availability from a variety of sources.
(2) Feasibility of exploitation of these sources.
(3) Assessment of economic, social, & environmental impacts.
These reports form the basis of high-level decision and policy support.

The BioEnergy Atlas covers data and investigative reports on basic factors of productivity that determine biomass potential, estimates of potential for a range of biomass sources, estimates of availability of biomass from waste, agricultural residue, purposely cultivated crops, and other woody biomass, and and assessment of the feasibility of generating energy products via any of 52 typical conversion processes. Impacts on jobs, greenhouse gases, economic activity, and biodiversity are determined.
These reports are supplemented by fact and data sheets that are also published in the Atlas.
