Officials and experts from 11 Eastern Europe and Central Asian countries such as Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine and Uzbekistan have met in Vienna on April 24 to explore how bioenergy and the deployment of other renewables can progress. The EU Horizon project BioVill has been selected to present a best practice example in knowledge transfer and capacity building on the implementation of the bioenergy village approach in SEE countries. During the discussion, it turned out, that most countries have high potentials to use biomass resources more effectively but still lack the necessary capacities.
