Resumo: A key strategy in tackling the issue of greenhouse gas emissions is associated with the replacement of fossil energies by renewable ones. This is why, in this context, the recent interest in using biomass as an energy source is increasing, mainly as biofuels - fuels originating from energy crops. The essay here presented is therefore central in this subject area, contributing to the study of an energy crop with high potential in our country, the Miscanthus x giganteus. The main goals of this dissertation include a propagation study of the species, the analysis of the crops growth in Portugal in the year of installation through a field experiment, and the development of a growth and crop productivity model in the year of crop installation. With regard to vegetative propagation Miscanthus x giganteus showed the best results when rhizomes with four internodes were used (larger fragments). In the growth analysis for the year of installation Miscanthus x giganteus showed a fast and effective establishment, reaching a productivity of 13.8 t ha-1. By modeling the culture‟s growth behavior it was possible to obtain a successful development and total biomass productivity model, wich showed reasonable results in several areas of the country with different agro-ecological conditions
