The European region offers significant potentials for the generation of bioenergy. Belarus, Russian Federation, Ukraine and Germany are among the countries that have given the generation of bioenergy a high strategic priority. The four countries do also have a long and successful history of economic and scientific cooperation. Germany’s Climate Initiative of the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety supports joint efforts aiming at accessing the potentials of bioenergy generation in these countries and enhancing economic and scientific cooperation between these countries.
Based on joint analyses on bioenergy potentials and the bioenergy ecosystems in the partner countries, the project partner prepare country profiles outlining the situation and potentials for an intensified and efficient bioenergy use in the partner countries. These activities will be implemented by interdisciplinary scientific collaboration with partner organizations from the Russian Federation, Belarus, Ukraine and Germany. Through the joint work and joint events, the know-exchange will be accelerated, information on consulting needs among bioenergy stakeholders will be generated and joint research projects will be initiated.
Main goal is to identify and to address potentials for bioenergy model/pilot plants jointly with partners from the Russian Federation, Belarus and Ukraine. To achieve this goal, the project will establish a scientific network of partner organizations. Based on country profiles summarizing the bioenergy potentials and bioenergy ecosystems in the partner countries, the project partners jointly identify competitive biomass conversion path-ways and high-potential regions, as well as research and pilot project opportunities.
Furthermore, the network accelerates the knowledge exchange between the partner countries and Germany by integrating further stakeholder groups including policy makers and the private sector. The network and the results of the joint activities contribute directly to the efficient generation of energy from biomass.
In the framework of the thematic bioenergy networks Fraunhofer UMSICHT organizes and performs exemplary qualification and further training measures related to the specific needs and to the regionally identified future-proof value added chains.
