The ambition of BECoop (2020-2023), a project supported by the European Horizon 2020 programme, is to provide the necessary conditions, technical as well as business support tools, for unlocking the underlying market potential of community bioenergy, fostering new links and partnerships.
Unlocking replication potential and scaling up at the EU level
Developing bioenergy communities
Reducing resistance, boosting demand and start de-risking community bioenergy investments
Empowering policy to transfer the community energy momentum to bioenergy heating
Making community bioenergy project development easier, further cutting down time and cost efforts
BECoop partners will develop a set of tools to facilitate the provision of support services to bioenergy communities and foster a broad deployment of bioenergy heating technologies across Europe.
What is bioenergy? What do communities offer? Learn more in our dedicated sections and with our project results.

The event gathered a group of expert panelists involved in energy transition, […]
Developed by CIRCE – Centro Tecnológico, this online repository gathers in a single place existing open-source tools useful for the energy communities and bioenergy sectors. The library allows project owners to identify them more easily, navigate through them and understand which ones best fit their needs. It supports developers and operators of community bioenergy and […]
This video explains concepts such as biomass / bioenergy, energy communities and introduces BECoop and its key actions to foster a broad deployment of bioenergy heating technologies across Europe and empower policy to transfer the community energy momentum to bioenergy heating. The video is available in Basque, English, French, German, Greek, Italian, Polish and Spanish. […]
BECoop partners are holding a series of webinars, from November 2022 to May 2023, to introduce key topics to whoemever is interested. The webinars last 45 minutes and are recorded, then made available on our Knowledge Exchange Platform. The first webinar recording, introducing biomass, is already available. Join us for the next ones and add […]
This webinar will focus on biomass as a potential source of renewable energy for generating heat and electricity in distributed energy systems and in household applications. You will hear a definition of biomass, the types, properties and forms to be used for heating purposes in bioenergy cooperatives, how to estimate the local biomass potential, biomass […]
EU Sustainable Energy Week 2022 – September 22, 9.00-10.30, online Co-organised by Women Engage for a Common Future (WECF) Equitable access to and control over sustainable energy services for all is an essential right. For the energy transition and EU Green Deal to be realised, they need to be inclusive and participatory. Everybody is talking […]
