From Biomass to Energy - Sustainability for Regional Economic Cycles (RegioSustain)
Date du début: 30 juin 2004, Date de fin: 29 juin 2007 PROJET  TERMINÉ 

The cultivation and utilization of biomass for energy production is an innovative way to create regional value cycles in which the entire value added - from the cultivation of biomass to the energy generation and consumption - remains in the region. Experience shows that the usage of biomass as alternative energy source can support regional economic development, especially in regions dominated by agriculture and forestry. Many of these regions, however, lack the know-how and tools required to properly set up regional cycles of biomass production, energy generation, and consumption. RegioSustain aims to enable regions to benefit from neglected potentials in agriculture and forestry through the usage of biomass for energy generation. More specifically, the operation aims to enhance available know-how and tools required to effectively use biomass for energy generation and as a tool for sustainable development and to create awareness among local and regional stakeholders and the general public. RegioSustain helps regions to further develop alternative energy sources and become more independent from external energy supply. It also helps regions in their efforts to diversify the sources of income from forestry and the agricultural sector and supports the preservation of traditional cultural landscapes. Activities include analyses of available know-how and the local potential to utilize biomass for energy generation. Through a number of workshops, conferences, exhibitions, and training events partners transfer and disseminate know-how and tools. Partners also establish information and service centers in the regions to support information, dissemination, and training activities.
