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.
