This document provides an overview of the steps from the identification of the biomass potential from landscape conservation and maintenance work (LCMW) as an opportunity for energy generation, to the description of the value chain considered for the pilot experiences in the greenGain model regions along with the extracted main conclusions. The deliverable covers the most important parameters that should be considered to assess the feasibility to develop a value chain based on biomass from landscape conservation and maintenance work including the selection of the most suitable conversion technologies and continuous optimization of all included aspects.

D3.3 Interim report on external stakeholder commitment 

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.

D3.4 Interim report on working group plenaries 

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.

D3.8 Final report on stakeholder commitments 

The objectives of the work package 3 “Creating an EU knowledge platform for LCMW feedstocks and reach the commitment of non-project LCMW stakeholders” is arranging relevant LCMW information with the purpose of stating recommended procedures, overcome bottlenecks and barriers towards successful exploitation and ensuring the future use of the gained know-how to be at the reach of the target stakeholders to be involved in future LCMW chains. Results of external stakeholder commitments are summarized within this document. This document contains also the list of participating stakeholders as well as their experiences.

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

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.

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

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.

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

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).
