The core of the project is development of a regional energy register which details the regional bio-energy sinks and biomass energy sources. The data will be presented on a web-based geographical information system (GIS). It should improve rational management of biomass flows and act as a spur for financing of biomass energy investments.
Within the framework of project BEn the local and regional biomass stakeholders in the North East Region will be identified and connected in a broad biomass network to share information and biomass knowledge to strengthen the bio-energy sector and to optimise their own activities.
Local communities and regional bodies will work together on the development of a ‘joint strategic master plan’ for supporting of a sustainable biomass supply chain in North East and promote bio-energy production and use.
BEN objectives and targets:
•Networking - to strengthen the biomass sector in North East (See the Biomass Stakeholder Map and the BEn North East Partners)
•Development of a web regional GIS bio-energy register (See the section on GIS register)
•Identification of new market opportunities for actors within biomass and bio-energy sectors
•Development of a regional biomass master plan including regional SWOT analysis for the North East
•Publication of technical, financial and management bio-energy guides
•Promotion of biomass, bio-energy and free web based GIS biomass register for North East
