The BioVill project has started

Kick-off Meeting took place in Freising – Germany

Many South East European countries have high biomass potentials, but they are often not or inefficiently used for local energy supply and regional economic development. Bioenergy villages produce and use most of its energy demand from local biomass sources. Bioenergy villages contribute to the climate and environmental protection and strengthen the local and regional economy.

BioVill is co-funded and supported by the European Union under the Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme and is designed to support the development of regional bioenergy concepts and the establishment of bioenergy villages in Croatia, Macedonia, Romania, Serbia and Slovenia. This will be achieved by identifying suitable biomass value chains according to local and regional needs and transferring existing experiences in Austria, Germany and other European countries to the South-Eastern European partners.
