Kaltschmitt et. al.  Overall economic assessment of energy production from biomass taking into account external and macroeconomic effects Bundesministerium für Ernährung, Landwirtschaft und Forsten; Federal Ministry of Food, Agricutlure and Forestry 2000 DE

Title (orig.): Gesamtwirtschaftliche Bewertungder Energiegewinnung aus Biomasse unter Berücksichtigung externer und makroökonomischer Effekte

Language: German

Summary:

The aim of this study was to determine the advantages and disadvantages of increased energy generation from biomass in Germany from a business and economic point of view. As a result of the investigation, conclusions were reached about the marginal and basic conditions that make energy supply from biogenic solid and liquid fuels most cost-effective for the operator and for the economy as a whole.

Title (orig.): Aufwand und Nutzen einer optimierten Bioabfallverwertung hinsichtlich Energieeffizienz, Klima- und Ressourcenschutz

Language: German, English Abstract

Summary:

Separately collected organic wastes in Germany are currently predominately composted and subsequently recycled for soil improvement and fertilization. Usage of the immanent energy potential of the organic wastes is just emerging. With special emphasis on organic wastes from households, parks and gardens as well as landscape management, the study analyses key questions on an improved material flow management.

Title (orig.): Ecologically sustainable recovery of bio-waste - Suggestions for policy-makers at local authorities

Language: English, German

Summary:

In order to provide guidance in optimising bio-waste collection and use especially for local policy-makers, this booklet sets out the potential in bio-waste and the technical processes currently available for using the various categories of bio-waste. Furthermore, with the aid of a checklist local policy-makers can estimate whether optimising bio-waste recovery is practical in terms of increasing the amounts collected or the quantity of energy generated on site.

La Voz de Galicia  Recycling and biomass plant to use biomass from roadside cleaning La Voz de Galicia.es 2007 ES

Title (orig.): Sugieren una planta de reciclaje y aprovechamiento de biomasa para residuos de cunetas

Language: ES

Summary:

Pontevedra could carry out a project to use biomass from roadsides for energy purposes if the initiative proposed by the Workers’ Commissions succeed. The trade Union asked the Council, to which are attributable 2,200 km of roads, to launch the initiative.

The plant would produce energy and fertilizers or both at the same time. It would also treat the biomass residues from different centres and farms of the provincial agency. Additionally it would process the residues from the forest cleaning, agriculture and vineyards.

The residues from the roadside cleaning are many times abandoned in site and therefore become a dangerous fuel in case a fire starts.

Madlener R., Vögtl S.  Diffusion of bioenergy in urban areas: socio-economic analysis of the planned Swiss wood-fired cogeneration plant in Basel CEPE Working Paper 2006 CH

Title (orig.): Diffusion of bioenergy in urban areas: socio-economic analysis of the planned Swiss wood-fired cogeneration plant in Basel

Language: EN

Summary:

The municipal utilities of Basel (IWB) are in the process of building a 30 MW wood-fired CHP plant in the city of Basel, a project idea that was initially propelled by visionaries from the forest sector. The plant is attractive both politically and from a business perspective, as several goals related to the increased use of renewable energy can be achieved simultaneously. Moreover, significant woody biomass resources are awaiting further exploitation in the Basel region, which could help to improve markedly the cost effectiveness of forest maintenance. In this paper we study the history and some of the characteristics of the planned project from a socio-economic perspective.

Malta Resources Authority  Malta feed-in tariff Malta Resources Authority 2014 MT

Title (orig.): Malta feed-in tariff

Language: English

Summary:

In Malta, electricity generated by domestic PV installations is mainly supported through a feed-in tariff. Malta promotes solar water heating systems for domestic use through a subsidy scheme. Support for renewable energy sources used in transport is provided through tax relief. The Malta Resources Authority is proposing that the existing system of tax exemption on biofuels is partly replaced by a mandatory substitution obligation. When the new regulation enters into force, importers will be obliged to blend a specific percentage of biofuels into their product. Electricity generated by renewable energy plants must be given priority transmission. According to the regulations in place, new grid capacity will be offered through a tendering procedure where required. There is a registration scheme for RES installations and a training programme for installers in Malta.
