Report on chances and challenges of LCMW biomass conversion pathways on different scale (D4.2)

The use of landscape biomass for bioenergy production incorporates a variety of chances and challenges. Among them low density in the area, heterogeneity, seasonal occurrence and many more which limit its practical use. This report shows the issues faced when landscape conservation and maintenance work (LCMW) biomass will be exploited on different geographical scales among them local heat production, heat, power and biogas production and transportation fuel production.

Interim report on working group plenaries (D3.4)

The purpose of the Stakeholder Working Groups is to ensure an efficient involvement of relevant stakeholders for the coordination and support of knowledge transfer and the concept replication throughout the duration of the project. In total 29 external stakeholders agreed to participate regularly and during the course of the project more stakeholders will be engaged. Here you can find i. a. the summaries of the first telephone conferences from the beginning of 2016.

Interim report on external stakeholder commitment (D3.3)

This deliverable describes how external stakeholders are attracted to contribute to greenGain and to implement elaborated recommendations and project results.
The implementation of project results in other regions than the model regions and the monitoring of their outcomes mean that respective stakeholders will be consulted about the opportunities in their region and will be supported by the project partners during the implementation of suitable greenGain results of WP4, 5 and 6.

Planning of the pilot experiences (D5.3)

Pilot experiences will be used as baseline for developing work plans and define feasible alternatives for a LCMW supply chain implementation, gaining practical experience on the operation and planning.
In the present document the planning of the pilot experiences implemented in the model regions are described including information regarding the actors involved and its role, description of the feedstock, description of the operations to be carried out, identification of the challenges to overcome, timeline foreseen for each operation, description of the machinery used and expected key results. These data compilation aims to contribute to improve the coordination between local or national authorities and stakeholders, identify the constraints or limitations that could arose during the implementation of a large scale LCMW supply chain, dissemination of results reached, definition of the sectors/actors interested, etc.

Report on resource and sustainability assessment and description of pilot experiences utilisation pathways for model regions (D5.2)

In the present document the LCMWs for the seven greenGain model regions have been object of analysis including: the categorisation and selection of LCMWs of actual relevance for the territory, the assessment of the theoretical and sustainable LCMW biomass potentials, the selection of the most promising pathways to supply the LCMW biomass to the local biomass consumers, and the conclusions per demo region. This report starts from LCMW types described in the status quo, and the resource and consumers analysis leads to understand better the opportunities, as well as gaps and challenges to be faced in future. This scope is the base for the pilot experiences programming (see planning in D5.3).

1st Report of dissemination activities (D2.4)

This first Report of dissemination activities” (D2.4) summarises dissemination activities carried out within the greenGain project in the first half of the project period (from January 2015 until June 2016). The main activities and tools in this respect are the project website, the greenGain.eu INFORMATION PLATFORM, regular newsletter, number of media appearances and articles and participation at major conferences such as EUBCE 2016 in Amsterdam or Biomass to Power and Heat 2016 in Zittau.

Interim LCMW materials assessment and utilisation pathways: templates, models and status quo (D5.1)

This deliverable describes for every project country the dedicated pilot region(s) in terms of geography, extent, population and economic activity. The existing LCMW types in these regions and their current utilisation was determined in a status quo assessment presented in this document as well. Further, the main biomass consumers in the areas of interest were identified and described. Finally, the deliverable elaborates the applied approach to detect the specific stakeholders of relevance for the utilisation of LCMW biomass and presents them for every pilot region.
