Welcome to the website for the Bioenergy Promotion. This is a new website that will promote the sustainable use of bioenergy in the Baltic Sea Region, and facilitate networking in the sector through an interactive register of people, organisations and projects. The website is part of the Bioenergy Promotion Project, partly founded by the European Union.
Key outcomes and lessons from the Main stage project Bioenergy Promotion (2009-2012). During the period 2009-2011 the consortium behind the Bioenergy Promotion project implemented many activities to promote sustainable bioenergy production and use in the Baltic Sea Region (BSR). The partners developed shared principles and criteria for sustainable bioenergy production in the BSR. In addition, they supported policy development at different levels of government, analysed sustainable biomass potentials, developed pilot projects and strategic concepts for the 17 demo regions, and prepared good practice projects, policies and business models relevant for the Baltic Sea Region and beyond.
The overall objective of the Extension stage of Bioenergy Promotion (2012-2014) was to strengthen key outcomes and results of the Main stage. The sustainability principles and criteria, as well as the strategic plans and concepts prepared for the demo regions, provided the main foundations for the Extension stage project.
On October 18th, the Baltic Sea Region Programme project "Bioenergy Promotion 2", organized the international bioenergy conference "From strategies to activities – Good practice examples of regional bioenergy promotion". The conference took place in relation to the international fair "Environment and Energy 2013 "in Riga, Latvia. The conference was organised by the Latvian project partner "Latvian Environmental Investment Fund" and there were in total more than 100 participants attending.
The aim of the project Bioenergy Promotion 2, co-financed by the EU Baltic Sea Region Programme, is to promote and increase the sustainable production and use of bioenergy in the Baltic Sea Region. Bioenergy Promotion 2 is a follow-up to the Main stage project Bioenergy Promotion. The Main stage project started in 2009 and concluded in 2012. The initial project consortium consisted of 33 partners, who were involved in the project activities.
