The project aims to increase the share of biomass in local energy production. The main focus is therefore on informing and raising awareness about the potential of bio-energy. Local networks will be established involving a wide range of relevant actors and linked up in a North Sea region wide network. The regional focal points will carry out two joint marketing campaigns. To reach out to possible producers and consumers as efficiently as possible will RES (renewable energy sources) implementers be recruited among SMEs and farmers. They will receive training and their activities will be coordinated trans-nationally. Some partners will also identify sites for new small-scale district heating plans and prepare plans for their implementation. An important transnational feature of the project is the development of a virtual market place for bio-energy trade. A first version will be launched by the end of the project.
