BioRegions

Regional Networks for the development of a Sustainable Market for Bioenergy in Europe

Duration: 2010 – 2013 ● Client: European Commission (IEE) ● WIP Expertise: Coordination, Market uptake ● www.bioregions.eu

BioRegions will bring the development of bioenergy regions on a European level building on the work of the most advanced areas. A "bioenergy region" gets at least 1/3 of its heating and electricity needs from regional and sustainable bioenergy sources, with main focus on solid biomass.

BioRegions will:

  • Support the development of efficient and reliable markets for solid biomass in the five target regions.
  • Stimulate investment into bioenergy projects and trading businesses of local Stakeholders.
  • Inspire further rural areas to follow the example of the target regions.
