BioPAD goes to Finland !

The BioPAD team is off to Joensuu in Finland to attend the Final Conference for BioPAD and REMOTE on Thursday 11th of September. We are excited to hear about the results and outcomes of these two NPP projects. The conference has been organised around four interesting sessions:

  1. Overcoming barriers-real world bioenergy development
  2. Policy package
  3. Creating value within the Supply Chain
  4. Opportunities: sustainable energy in the Northern Periphery

Please feel free to check out the conference programme here: and register your interest here:

On day two of our Finnish trip, the BioPAD partners will attend the final partner meeting of the project to discuss and recap all the project outcomes and achievements, some of which include: A study on local socio-economic benefits and supply chain pilot actions; BISCUIT, the BioPAD Supply Chain Unique Integrated Tool; Bioenergy policy analysis for four different countries; Dissemination of the policy toolkits developed under RASLRES (a previous NPP project); Case studies from the four partner countries; BioPAD e zines. At our partner meeting we will also discuss the plans for BioPAD beyond 2014 taking the bioenergy agenda forward.

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)
