Important parts of a successful Climate- and Energy work Decreasing greenhouse gases emissions Energy Efficiency Research and Development
Climate- and Energy Strategy Decreasing greenhouse Energy Efficiency Research and Development gases emissions Climate Agreements Universities Planning IT- Energy and Innovation Companies Transports Climate Forsmark Nuclear Power Plant Uppsala Energy Initiative -using warm waste water Renewable energy Local government climate Lifestyle and energy strategies Agricultural and forestry Adaptions Heavy machines Procurements adapted to climate and energy
Climate agreements Basic Agreement - 10 % energy efficiency 2012 - further 10 % energy efficiency 2016 - only purchase of green cars from 2010 Workgroup Business associations Organizations Municipalities GeneralBusinessEtc.
Arrangement of the SEECA Project Identification and development of existing climate and energy strategies Design and Development of Climate Agreements Eco-driving and good planning when using heavy machines Communication and Dissemination of the results – Open Days in Brussel
Eco-driving and good planning when using heavy machines Manuals for planning works with heavy maschines Design and Development of Climate Agreements with owners and users of heavy maschines

Enough potential for biomass based energy production, but there are barriers to overcome: Knowledge barriers Supply barriers Demand barriers Financial barriers Barriers
Five workpackages: WP1 Management and coordination WP2 Best Practices and Regional Biomass studies WP3 Development of a Standardized Biomass Energy Model WP4 Biomass Energy Plans WP5 Dissemination and involvement of key actors Project set-up
Establishment of: Project group Steering committee Regional Stakeholder Committee Different ways of communication WP1 – Management and coordination
Collection of three best practices per region Regional studies Groene Woud; A survey of the potential and necessary maximum production capacity at region scale and the impact it has on sustainable regional development goals A location scan A study of possibilities for further expansion An analysis of legal and practical obstacles for implementation as well as solutions for this WP2 – Best Practices and Regional Biomass Studies
Regional studies Andalucía; Two pre feasibility studies for a large scal biomass plant using vine pruning residues; for the collection of forestry residues and usage in smaller- scale CHP boilers. WP2 – Best Practices and Regional Biomass Studies
Regional studies Malopolska; analysis of current resources and possible future potential; model based problem analysis; study of the profitability of an investment with various types of fuel used; comparison of different technical solutions; assessment of the potential environmental effects using biomass for energy production compared to traditional energy sources; Study on the implementation of model technical solutions starting from processing biomass at the local level. WP2 – Best Practices and Regional Biomass Studies
Regional studies Stockholm Region; Analysis of suitable logistic solutions (together with energy companies) Study on logistics of biomass substrates and planning of adequate treatment and production sites for the increasing production of biogas. WP2 – Best Practices and Regional Biomass Studies
WP3 contains: A study into barriers and possibilities in biomass collection and distribution at the local/regional level; A regional analysis in which treats, chances and solutions for a sustainable implementation for the model are analysed; The ecological, social and economic sustainability of the new model will be looked upon including the potential integration of social groups in production and logistics. WP3 – Development of a standardized Biomass Energy Model
Outcomes of previous WPs integrated in ready-to- implement Biomass Energy Plan (including a businessmodel); Design of a clear integrated management of the supply chain; Uniting stakeholders, engaging key actors and setting out a strategy. WP4 – Biomass Energy Plans
