The project supports the creation of "bioenergy regions" in rural areas of Europe. A "bioenergy region" gets at least 1/3 of its heating and electricity needs from regional and sustainable bioenergy sources, with main focus on solid biomass. The BioRegions project brought the development of bioenergy regions on a European level by building on the work of the most advanced areas.

This was achieved through the following work plan:

  • identification of success factors in “best practice” regions
  • networking activities in the target regions
  • definition of Action Plans for establishing five new bioenergy regions
  • support the implementation of the Action Plans in the target regions
  • encourage and support other regions to replicate the project activities

The target regions involved in the project were: Sredna Gora (Bulgaria), Slavicin and Brumov-Bylnice (Czech Republic), Trieves (France), County Westmeath (Ireland) and Limbazi (Latvia). Further information on these regions can be found here.
