Presentations from the BioPAD Launch & Bioenergy Workshop

In Donegal last month Joe McHugh, TD launched the BioPAD project and a bioenergy workshop.  The launch and workshop provided us with great opportunities to share experiences of bioenergy development in Ireland with Scotland and Northern Ireland, and for us all to benefit from the significant expertise of Finland in the sector.

The presentations and photos from the launch can be found on our website


About biopadblog

Developing a local bioenergy market can provide significant opportunities for rural and remote areas, by improving security of energy supply, contributing to a reduction in CO2 emissions and stimulating the local economy by creating jobs and keeping payments for energy within the local community. A new project, BioPAD (Bioenergy Proliferation and Deployment), which targets the Northern Periphery of Europe, aims to ensure that bioenergy becomes more widely used and that awareness of the opportunities it provides are increased. The project will help the development of bioenergy and improve our understanding of the links between supply and demand by looking at supply chains for a variety of bioenergy fuels and different ways of converting these fuels into sustainable energy. Understanding the supply chains and the ways bioenergy moves from fuel source to energy provision will help the establishment of robust and efficient supply services which can match local demand. BioPAD is led by the Western Development Commission (Ireland) and is funded under the ERDF Interreg IVB Northern Periphery Programme (NPP)
