Workshop Description

SRCplus and SUCELLOG are projects founded by the Intelligent Energy - Europe (IEE) Programme of the European Commission. The IEE programme was launched in 2003 by the European Commission, as part of a broad push to create an energy-intelligent future for Europe.

The overall goal of the SRCplus project is to support and speed-up the development of local supply chains of Short Rotation Woody Crops (SRC) by implementing various capacity building measures and regional mobilization actions for the key actors in local supply chains. The countries that have the largest areas of SRC for energy are Sweden, UK and Poland. The potential in other European countries remains largely untapped. However, there is an increasing demand for wood chips supported by the targets of national and European energy policies. This creates a gap between the rising demand and supply in Europe in several countries. The SRCplus consortium was created to respond to this demand and to implement actions to tackle the market barriers. SRCplus is implemented in 8 target regions within Germany, Croatia, Latvia, France, Czech Republic, Greece, and Macedonia. A partner from Sweden is involved in the project actions due to the long-time experience with SRC in Sweden. The action is coordinated by WIP Renewable Energies, Germany.

Sweden 1SUCELLOG aims to widespread the participation of the agrarian sector in the sustainable supply of solid biofuels in Europe. SUCELLOG action focuses in an almost unexploited logistic concept: the implementation of agro-industry logistic centres in the agro-industry as a complement to their usual activity evidencing the large synergy existing between the agro- economy and the bio-economy. Agro-industry facilities can be utilised in the idle periods to handle and pre-treat biomass feedstocks (mainly from agricultural residues) to produce quality solid biomass to be introduced into the market. SUCELLOG project (IEE/13/638/SI2.675535) is supported by the European Commission under the Intelligent Energy Europe Programme.
