Regional Approach to Stimulating Local Renewable Energy Solutions 4.2
  • Developing and establishing market stimulation models (MSM's) for rural renewable energy bio fuels
  • Benchtesting these MSM's through real life pilots involving scores of NPP renewable energy users, providers and businesses
  • With the MSM final model a real ability to provide Local and national authorities a lower risk method for establishing economically viable renewable energy businesses within and without the NPP region
RASLRES – the Regional Approaches to Stimulating Local Renewable Energy Solutions project – brings together partners from Ireland, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Sweden. The project aims to increase the use of renewable energy technologies in rural economies in the NPP region. Initial focus will be on the bio-energy sector. To do this,... More...
Aim & Objectives:
The main objective of the project is to increase the deployment and uptake of locally produced renewable energy solutions in the NPP area, through the development and implementation of targeted Market Stimulation Models (MSM's). This will be addressed through several sub-objectives: Increase market awareness and information across the supply... More...
Expected Outcomes:
Main Expected Results Establish wood fuels and marine biomass as viable alternative to fossil fuels, by making them a real cost competitive alternative in the NPP area and raising the awareness along the whole supply chain. Establish target levels of economical production and usage for small and medium scale deployment projects, based on market... More...
Reported Outcomes:
Since starting the RASLRES project in late 2009 significant progress has been made against the planned actions in terms of launching an effective transnational partnership and initiating key actions to enable programme outputs to be achieved in the regional renewable bio energy sector. In terms of communications, RASLRES has received widespread PR... More...
