Uptake of Solid Bioenergy in European Commercial Sectors

Solutions developed

B4Bs main objectives were to
- increase the utilisation of solid biomass sources by a (partial) fuel-switch from coal, oil or natural gas used for heat purposes
- support the application of sound business models and the careful assessment and implementation of biomass heat applications in selected industrial, commercial, agricultural, residential and services’ heat market segments
- build a bridge between policy makers and market actors to support the creation of an enabling environment for an uptake of biomass used for heat purposes.

Main results

The Horizon 2020 project Bioenergy4Business (B4B) aims at supporting and promoting the (partial) substitution of fossil fuels (such as coal, oil, gas) used for heating with available bioenergy sources (such as by-products of the wood-based industry, forest biomass, pellets, straw and other agricultural biomass products) in the project partners’ countries and beyond.
