For the rural regions biomass and bioenergy could be central affairs for the regional development. One or more regions will be developed in each country to serve as “testing grounds” for bioenergy promotion. In each region the biomass potential will be assessed, bioenergy related business and industry analysed, new pilot projects initiated, and in the end strategic management plans developed. In addition a regional network point will be established in each region.
More ongoing information about the work package. In total 17 bioenergy-regions are established throughout the Baltic Sea Region. In most regions a regional network point is also established. In 2009 the main focus was on assessment of biomass potential. This work included preparation of a common methodology for data-mapping and assessment of the regional potentials. Further was the regional value added chains in conjunction with the biomass production analysed. An ongoing work is the initiation of pilot projects, which later shall be developed to regional examples for practical energetic use of biomass. In the last year of the project strategic management plans for an integrated and optimized use of biomass and bioenergy will be developed and implemented.Here you can find the regions.
