BECoop will develop a Knowledge Exchange Platform to offer various stakeholders (other RESCoops, community initiatives, municipalities, RE and bioenergy industry actors, investors, etc.) a one-stop-shop lifting collaboration barriers across regions and sectors and minimising costs thanks to information sharing and knowledge exchange.

It will allow early stage RESCoops to pool the expertise of their peers already being successful, like the collaborative nature of the RESCoop concept suggests.

The tool will be available from April 2022 (first version) and October 2023 (final version).

The platform will have both digital and physical presence and will:

I

Create an easy-to-access repository of knowledge, tools and services in the field of community bioenergy heating.

II

Act as an observatory/atlas of bioenergy community cases (and community energy cases with high potential to include bioenergy), technologies and service provider.

III

Offer a digital space for fostering cross-regional networking, dialogue and knowledge exchange among community bioenergy actors.

The tool will be available from April 2022 (first version) and October 2023 (final version).
