Bioenergy4Business is a project funded by the Horizon 2020 Framework Programme of the European Union. Bioenergy4Business involves partners from twelve EU Member States and Ukraine.
The Horizon 2020 project Bioenergy4Business (B4B) aims at supporting and promoting the (partial) substitution of fossil fuels (such as coal, oil, gas) used for heating with available bioenergy sources (such as by-products of the wood-based industry, forest biomass, pellets, straw and other agricultural biomass products) in the project partnersā countries and beyond.
B4B Project started at the beginning of 2015 and during 32 months of it's realization next events will be conducted: national info days, national policy workshops, training seminars, national field trips and study tours. The detailes of the following events will be informed on SEC Biomass web-site.
Financing: East Europe Foundation
Evaluation of the main components of the biomass energy potential in Dnepropetrovsk oblast is performed. Recommendations for priority use of different types of biomass are developed.
Ukraine: Regulatory Support for Renewable Heating and Cooling Policy
Financing: ALLPLAN GmbH (Austria)
Description of the project: The project consists of two stages. The first stage includes analysis of state of the art and prospects for the development of renewable heating and cooling in Ukraine: potential, existing installations, planned projects, driving forces and barriers. Based on results of the analysis and taking into account successful experience of the EU countries, the second stage is aimed at elaboration of regulatory support recommendations for the sector in question in Ukraine.
Project partner:Utrecht University, the Netherlands.
Aim of the project: The Global Environment Facility (GEF) project is aimed to thoroughly investigate conditions and opportunities for the production of 2nd generation biofuels in Mozambique, Argentina and Ukraine. For Ukraineās conditions the project considers production of bioethanol from wheat straw and synthetic biodiesel from poplar as an energy crop.
Analysis of current state and prospects for bioenergy development in Ukraine
Project partner: āDEInternationalā (Ukraine)
Aim of the project: We thoroughly considered and analyzed state of the art and prospects for the development of bioenergy in Ukraine: potential of biomass for energy production, existing and perspective bioenergy equipment, legislation and standardization issues, development strategy and opportunities for the attraction of investments in the bioenergy sector.
Biomass CHP plants in Ukraine and Russia
Project partner:Ecoprog GmbH (Germany).
Aim of the project: We collected and analyzed information on biomass CHP plants, which operate or are planned to be built in Ukraine and Russia.
USAID ā Hellenic AID energy cooperation SYNENERGY
Project coordinator: CRES ā Center for Renewable Energy Sources (Greece)
Aim of the project: Analysis of the present state of policy and regulatory sector concerning RE in Ukraine; biomass potential assessment.
Subjects of this annual conference cover a wide range of issues related to energy use of biomass: the biomass resources, research and development of bioenergy technologies, demonstration and commercial projects, legislation, strategy and finance, economic and environmental aspects of bioenergy sector. The conference program includes plenary presentations, oral and poster presentations, roundtable discussions. Seminars and workshops are held at the conference.
Training course āFrom Natural Gas to Biomassā
Training course āFrom Natural Gas to Biomassā ā Three-day training on biomass to energy technologies with fourth day as an excursion to operating bioenergy sites.
Period: 1 March 2008 ā 30 November 2010.
The overall objective of the project āBiomass Energy Europeā is to improve the accuracy and comparability of future biomass resource assessments for energy by reducing heterogeneity, increasing harmonization and exchanging knowledge.?
