The main objective of the project ENERGY BARGE is to exploit the potential for green energy in the form of biomass along the Danube river in a sustainable way, thereby increasing energy security and efficiency in the Danube countries, considering:
the Renewable Energy Directive 2009/28/EC,
the EU2020 climate goals,
EU Danube Region Strategy’s objective.
An outstanding feature of the ENERGY BARGE project is its cross-sectoral approach: the project brings together key actors along the entire value chain, stakeholders from the bioenergy industry, Danube ports as well as relevant public authorities and policy stakeholders. This shall support transnational know-how transfer and cooperation.
ENERGY BARGE will build a platform for the exchange of experiences and best practices, extending the deployment of biomass for energy production in the Danube region.
