Decision Making and Implementation Tools for Delivery of Local & Regional Bio-Energy Chains


This project was aimed at delivering agendas for bio-energy promotion in 4 EU Regions (in Austria, Italy, Slovenia and UK) by developing and applying decision-making tools that assist in extensively identifying, evaluating and initiating bio-energy chains. Bio-energy stakeholder platforms were set-up in the regions under scope by establishing working groups including a wide range of relevant stakeholders so that the bio-energy theme is integrated into ongoing regional energy programmes. Thus, on the basis of biomass potential and through an intense consultation with stakeholders, the project delivered bio-energy agendas paving a clear way for the development or expansion of bio-energy chains. The agendas addressed biomass supply and markets, bio-energy applications and technologies, pilot projects as well as educational (e.g. in high schools/universities) and dissemination activities in a short/medium time horizon. The tools delivered and the results achieved were disseminated throughout Europe to encourage the replication of sustainable bio-energy planning
