The Horizon 2020 project Bioenergy4Business (B4B)

There is a new project that gives new opportunities for bioenergy development in Ukraine. 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 partners’ 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 web-site of our partners SEC Biomass.

Project objectives:

  • To identify the most promising commercial market segments for which a switch from fossil fuels to bioenergy is advisable;
  • To prepare business strategies and models;
  • To deliver know-how on the supply and usage of biomass;
  • To train developers, consultants, heat operators and employees of energy services companies to assess and develop projects in communities with district heating and in sectors with auto-production of heat;
  • To convince stakeholders of the opportunities that are created by local value chains for bioenergy heat;
  • To make the relevant policy makers aware of policy measures that could speed up the bioenergy heat technology diffusion process.
