BioVill - Market uptake of existing and emerging sustainable bioenergy

The main objective of the H2020 project BioVill, is to develop regional bioenergy concepts in selected target countries Slovenia, Serbia, Croatia, Macedonia and Romania, up to the investment stage in order to become bioenergy villages in cooperation with partners from countries with established bioenergy markets: Austria & Germany. The project fosters the development of the bioenergy sector in target countries by strengthening the role of locally produced biomass as a main contributor for energy supply on the local level, considering opportunities of market uptake or expansion for local farmers, wood producers or SMEs. Core activities of the project are: - Analysis of the national and local framework conditions. - Assessment of technological and economic options for local bioenergy value chains. - Development of the institutional set-up and energy management concepts for the potential bioenergy villages. - Build-up capacities and strengthen know-how on financing schemes and business models. - Implement a multi-stakeholder approach and foster the involvement and active participation of the citizens and stakeholders in the planning and implementation process.
