objectives

The most important goal of the project is a contribution to solving technical problems and popularisation of a decentralized (regional) energy conversion with simultaneous local consumption including transport of alternative fuel.

In response to the identified challenges, the project carries out joint capacity-building, pilot demonstration and advocacy actions in order to achieve a change and unlock a potential for (especially) technology, products and services suppliers to make alternative energy sources in the SB area popular and therefore make the use of energy more sustainable and more adjusted to users’ needs. The most important goal of the project is a contribution to solving technical problems and popularisation of a decentralized (regional) energy conversion with simultaneous local consumption including transport of alternative fuel. The micro / nano scale use of the technological solutions in energy supply is a new approach to the applicability of (bio-)LNG with the much wider potential than relatively centralised big-scale investments systems. As a market in the initial phase it is characterised by low knowledge level by potential end-users and requires dissemination and demonstration activities to raise awareness of the target groups and thus, untapped its capitalisation potential for the SB companies. Therefore the WP2, WP3 and WP4 activities build one on the other and are directly linked either by using the produced outcomes for next project implementation steps or work simultaneously to achieve planned results. Thus, WP3 works with the demand side to better understand the current and future user needs in the context of sustainable (bio-)LNG based energy supply for micro/nano solutions in a decentralised way. It will: (1) accumulate good practice how to make the use of (bio-)LNG technology attractive to policies and users; (2) gather stakeholders in the partner areas and help them agree on sustainable paths for the (bio-)LNG based systems, (3) collect target groups needs, and (4) work out a catalogue of solutions matching user expectations for sustainable and high quality products and services implementing (bio-)LNG based energy supply systems. WP3 delivers necessary input to activities within WP4. WP4 deals with the supply side and designs/tests steering tools and operational models for (bio-)LNG based energy supply systems in the micro/nano-scale. Based on benchmarked performance qualities of the current solutions in the partner areas, 4 interlinked and jointly developed by the PPs pilot cases (2 in PL, 1 in DE and 1 in LT) will attempt to develop/enhance the regional and cross-border products and services based on the micro/nano (bio-)LNG based solutions. They will be accompanied by a set of training and raising awareness actions addressed to the project target groups. The cases will be summed up to help replicate – in the whole SB area - measures to enhance the compatibility/integration of existing /new technical solutions across the borders and provide an attractive alternative to polluting and still used technology.
