Work Programme - Objectives

The overall goal of the Bio-NETT project is to support the development of local supply and use of liquid bio-fuels by creating a more integrated and cohesive market structure, linking suppliers and users through regional networking in both the urban and rural context.
To achieve this, the Bio-NETT project will: 
  • Establish local bio-fuels networks, which will provide a structure to co-ordinate the involvement of local representatives of regional and national advisory agencies and other renewable energy organisations. The networks will facilitate the co-operation and collaboration between Local Authorities and other public sector organisations in conjunction with the farming communities. This will provide a mechanism to tailor opportunities to local circumstances and assist in the dissemination of the project.
  • Increase the confidence and knowledge of the use of bio-fuels by public sector organisations and within farming communities for the supply of bio-fuels products, through training and capacity building initiatives.  This will:
  • Inform public sector organisations prior to making key transport procurement decisions of potential benefits of sustainable nature of the supply of bio-fuels.
  • Encourage public sector organisations to access support and advice schemes, thus increasing the uptake of bio-fuels use in public sector transport programmes.
  • Increase the number of agricultural businesses, which develop new diversification and entrepreneurial opportunities linked to sustainable agricultural practices.
  • Establish supply chain thematic groups by the project partners, in order to provide a detailed assessment of the key issues that form the supply chain for bio-fuels. Four groups will be established to address potential barriers relating to:
  • Agriculture
  • Bio–fuels production
  • Distribution and Storage
  • End use in Vehicles
  • Develop best practice tools to support the development of efficient local bio-fuel supply network, building on the work of the project networks and the thematic groups.
  • Disseminate the results of the project to further transfer the developed knowledge and support the growth of regional bio-fuel supply networks across the EU.  The dissemination will be done at the EC, national and local level, and will include the establishment of regional bio-fuel information centres.
