    El progresivo deterioro socioeconómico de buena parte del territorio rural del interior español ha motivado la necesidad de aplicar medidas de acción que procuren la diversificación productiva de estos espacios. En este sentido, el sector de la bioenergía constituye una actividad susceptible de generar efectos económicos y sociales en las zonas de localización. El objetivo de este trabajo consiste en analizar los impactos que actualmente puede tener el sector de la bioenergía en las zonas rurales de Castilla y León, así como las potencialidades y los obstáculos para su correcto desarrollo. Los resultados obtenidos muestran que los importantes beneficios atribuidos a este sector no se están produciendo como era esperado y que aún hay que superar importantes trabas, tanto desde el punto de vista de la oferta como de la demanda, para que la bioenergía contribuya de manera generalizada al desarrollo del medio rural. The progressive socioeconomic decline in Spanish rural areas has motivated the need for action measures to diversify production of these spaces. In this sense, the bioenergy sector is an activity likely to generate economic and social effects in the areas of location. The aim of this work is to analyze the possible impact of the bioenergy sector in rural areas in Castilla y León, as well as the potential and obstacles for its development. Results show that significant benefits attributed to this sector are not producing as expected and there are still significant problems, both from the point of view of supply and demand, impeding the contribution of bioenergy to rural development.
