Promotion of sustainable supply and use of bioenergy in agriculture and forestry in the Russian Federation and Ukraine

As of: June 2021

The project supported the identification of bioenergy potential as a decentralised energy source in Russia and the Ukraine. In this process, the sustainability of the bioenergy supply was of particular importance since the use of agricultural waste materials in a controlled manner produces bioenergy as well as reduces emissions into the air, ground and water. In both countries, the aim of the project was to enable project partners to independently recognise, develop and take advantage of opportunities for using renewable resources as an energy source. In the context of planning and implementing pilot projects, the partners received advice and training that strengthen their project development capacity for initiating and encouraging future bioenergy projects. Sustainable financing models help to shape the policy framework and to further develop concepts on bioenergy usage.
