One of the partners in Bioenergy Promotion 2 is Skaraborgsregionen in the southwest of Sweden. Here, biogas production is regarded as the obvious solution to many problems: it can create work opportunities and it makes use of household waste as well as waste products from food industries and farms. And it can replace fossil fuel as vehicle fuel on a big scale.
This task is led by the German Agency of Renewable Resources (Fachagentur Nachwachsende Rohstoffe e.V. - FNR) and has basically a three step approach: The first step includes the identification of 11 sustainability initiatives and certification systems for bioenergy used in the Baltic Sea Region. As a second step the underlying criteria covered by those initiatives and certification systems were compared to those criteria developed in the frame of Bioenergy Promotion for the BSR (Task 3.1) and the main differences were identified.
Task 3.3 is led by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety in cooperation with the Environmental Policy Research Centre, Berlin. The main steps so far include an EU policy assessment, the development of a policy guidance paper and seven (draft) country policy assessments. The guidance paper contains mostly trans-national policy recommendations referring to the formulation and implementation of the National Renewable Energy Action Plans. Based on the paper resp. its draft versions committed project partners in Finland, Estonia, Poland and Latvia prepared targeted policy recommendations for national policy makers and policy advisory organizations in the frame of NREAP formulation processes.
An energy independent german village, biodiesel production from household waste in Norway and Utilization of biogas from farm waste in Latvia are three projects choosen as the best regional best practice models by the Bioenergy Promotion project.
