Uncertainty of modelled bioenergy with carbon capture and storage due to variability of input data produced by the ADVANCES project team in collaboration with teams outside of the Landscape Decisions Programme cohort. Authored by Anita ShepherdMike MartinAstley Hastings. First published 08 January 2021 https://doi.org/10.1111/gcbb.12803

Climate and soil effects were tested on BECCS, as part of the UKERC (UK Energy Research Centre) Phase 4 research programme, funded by UK Research and Innovation (EP/S029575/1). Model development was also made possible by ADVENT (ADdressing Valuation of Energy and Nature Together).
