The study is based on analyzing the potential of energy crops as a source for liquid fuels and bioelectricity. even after their realized potential their translational market is non-existant. This study outlines ways in which the market for these crops can be pronounced. These were subsidizing the bioelectricity so that people can alter their interest towards the bioelectricity generation. a national Renewable portfolio standard (RPS) so that a portion of electricity generated is through energy crops and a national cap and trade policy to limit carbon dioxide emission. However, groeing and harvesting the energy crops would effect the market and trade for other agricultural/textile/medicinal crops
