The Biomass Scenario Model (BSM) is a unique, carefully validated, state-of-the-art dynamic model of the domestic biofuels supply chain that explicitly focuses on policy issues, their feasibility, and their potential side effects. It integrates resource availability, physical/technological/economic constraints, behavior, and policy. The model uses a system dynamics simulation (not optimization) to model dynamic interactions across the supply chain: the BSM tracks the deployment of biofuels given technological development and the reaction of the investment community to those technologies in the context of land availability, the competing oil market, consumer demand for biofuels, and government policies over time. It has a strong emphasis on the behavior and decision making of various agents and resolves 10 geographic regions domestically. The BSM is currently used to develop insights into the biofuels industry growth and market penetration, particularly with respect to policies and incentives (volumetric, capital, operating subsidies; carbon caps/taxes; R&D investment; loan guarantees; tax credits) applicable to each supply-chain element. It is suitable for coupling to vehicle-choice, agricultural, oil-industry, and general economic models.

# How do tipping-point dynamics affect the dominance of particular biofuels pathways?
 
# What opportunities exist for coordinating incentives and policies across the supply chain?
 
# How naturally inclined is the biofuels supply chain to develop toward meeting targets such as the Renewable Fuel Standard Program (RFS2) volume requirements and percentage standards?
 
# How does the achievement of U.S. Department of Energy Bioenergy Technologies Office (BETO) targets through R&D efforts affect the overall success of biofuels?
 
# How substantially do BETO demonstration and market transformation investments foster the growth of particular biomass-to-biofuel conversion pathways?
 
# What might happen if the RSF2 or its implementation is changed significantly?

The Biomass Scenario Model (BSM) is a modeling tool for bioeconomy analysis. It is a unique, carefully validated, state-of-the-art dynamic model of the domestic bioenergy supply chain that integrates resource availability, physical/technological/economic constraints, behavior, and policy.

The model uses a system dynamics simulation (not optimization) to show interactions across the supply chain. The BSM tracks the deployment of bioenergy given technological development and the reaction of the investment community to those technologies in the context of land availability, other energy sources, and opportunities for bioenergy over time. It has a strong emphasis on the behavior and decision making of various agents and resolves 10 geographic regions domestically.

The BSM is currently used to develop insights into bioenergy industry growth. It is suitable for coupling to vehicle-choice, agricultural, oil industry, and general economic models.
