The Knowledge Discovery Framework (KDF) service from the U.S. Department of Energy provides summaries and research data on energy production by conversion of biomass. It gives projections of production and supplies of biomass feedstocks, which may represent business opportunities such as building a refinery for biomass energy. The service summarizes feedstock crop potential, transportation routes, and related factors to facilitate analysis of the most profitable opportunities for developing biomass energy facilities.
API methods provide data such as the market prices of refined biofuels, the prices of agricultural crops with potential for conversion to bioenergy sources, and similar variables for specified time periods. Methods also support analysis of probabilities for certain supply and price combinations within particular time periods.
