Main stage

The Bioenergy Promotion project will promote the development of a sustainable production of and commercialization of biomass in the Baltic Sea Region. The project started in January 2009 and will last for three years. The Swedish Energy Agency coordinates the project, which is a collaboration between 33 participating partners from ten countries around the Baltic Sea: Belarus; Denmark; Estonia; Finland; Germany; Latvia; Lithuania; Norway; Poland and Sweden. The initiative for the Bioenergy Promotion Project initially came from the Baltic 21 secretariat. The project is part-financed from the EU Baltic Sea Region Programme, with a budget of about 5 million Euros. Use the tabs below to explore the five work packages that make up the Bioenergy Promotion project.

PROJECT OBJECTIVES

The project aims to strengthen the development towards a sustainable, competitive and territorially integrated Baltic Sea Region in the field of sustainable use of bioenergy. The project is intended to serve as a major Baltic Sea Region-wide platform for:

  • Cross-sectoral and transnational networking to facilitate information and knowledge exchange
  • Coordinating policy development
  • Designing the application instruments to promote bioenergy
  • Creating a platform for regional development

WP5

Work Package: Business

Isn’t it the possibility to make business that makes the bioenergy market go round? There are many examples of good practice in terms of business cooperation between the BSR countries today, but there still exist a huge, unutilized potential for increased business opportunities, which WP5 Business aims to investigate and promote.
