ENERGY BARGE - Building a green energy and logistics belt
The main objective of the project ENERGY BARGE is to exploit the potential for green energy in the form of biomass along the Danube River in a sustainable way, thereby increasing energy security and efficiency in the Danube countries, considering:
The Renewable Energy Directive 2009/28/EC;
The EU2020 climate goals;
EU Danube Region Strategy's objective.
An outstanding feature of the ENERGY BARGE project is its cross-sectoral approach: the project will bring together key actors along the entire value chain, stakeholders from the bioenergy industry, Danube ports as well as relevant public authorities and policy stakeholders. This shall support transnational know-how transfer and cooperation.
ENERGY BARGE will build a platform for the exchange of experiences and best practices, extending the deployment of biomass for energy production in the Danube region.
6 partners from the logistics sector including 5 ports;
3 partners from the field of research that provide either special knowledge needed for the implementation of the project or who have special knowledge and networks in their regions.
Focus on results
An increased use of Danube logistics will help to reduce emissions, to establish a low-carbon transport system and to improve the environment performance along the entire bioenergy value chains.
The project's in particular contributes to the implementation of the action plans elaborated in Priority Area (PA) 2 "Energy" and PA 1a "Inland Waterways" of the EU Strategy for the Danube Region (EUSDR).
ENERGY BARGE is co-funded by European Union funds (ERDF).

Projects of ARBIO. "Bioenergy4Business"
ARBIO, together with its partners from 11 EU countries, is currently participating in an Horizon 2020 project, "Bioenergy4Business", that aims at supporting and promoting the (at least partial) substitution of fossil fuels used for heating with the available biomass sources at local level.
Bioenergy4Business will build bridges between policies and markets to support the creation of an enabling environment, the use of sound business and financing models and the careful assessment and implementation of biomass heat in local and district heating and in "in-house" applications. These aspects will be considered for the most promising market segments among industry and commerce, residential buildings, agriculture and commercial and public services, identified during the project's lifetime.
