Abstract:The research for this thesis consists of the study of the potential that Basque forests have to be a sustainable source of bioenergy in the region. Energy is a crucial element for fighting against climate change, and as a result, the development of renewable energy sources like bioenergy are necessary. Also, renewable energies would generate local benefits and more energy independence for the region. The research aims to estimate the maximum potential that Basque forests have to be used as sustainable energy sources. The research will be analyzed using perspectives from ecology, forestry, management models, and sustainability. The primary data for this research is from different organizations of the Basque government, such as the department responsible for forestry, energy, and public management, also, scientific documents that contain information and different processes for bioenergy. The secondary data will be used to analyze what is done in other countries for comparison. It will also be used to support the primary data. The recommendation will be generated directly from the combination of ecology and sustainability for different sectors of the region and public institutions in a general way.
