Duration: 01 January 2019 – 31 December 2021

Financing: European Union's H2020-LCE research and innovation programme under grant agreement №818369.

Main objective: to produce a mass deployment of improved and market ready agrobiomass heating solutions running on agrobiomass in Europe.

Agrobiomass is a large, underexploited and indigenous resource, which can support the achievement of the European Energy and Climate targets, while promoting rural development and circular economy.

Through its activities, AgroBioHeat aims to raise confidence on agrobiomass, empower local stakeholders to unblock the market and influence the development of the European and national framework in a way that is favourable to agrobiomass heating solutions market uptake. Actions will be mainly located in 6 European countries (EL, ES, FR, RO, HR and UA; 5 EU-28+Ukraine) where an extensive national movement is intended to be created by the engagement, alignment of interests and creation of policy, financial and social conditions favouring the expansion of agrobiomass heating; at the EU level, specific policy recommendations regarding the efficiency and emissions of agrobiomass heating solutions will be passed on to relevant bodies for the development of new regulations.

To reach the project’s main aim, the following eight specific objectives are proposed:

A high-level Ukrainian delegation comprising policy makers, investors, civil society and city officials visited Stockholm on invitation from World Bioenergy Association for a 2-day study trip during October 23 - 24, 2018. The study trip included a 1-day event on ‘Sweden Ukraine Bioenergy Cooperation Forum’  followed by site visits to bioenergy installations. The forum was organised in cooperation with the Embassy of Ukraine in Sweden and Swedish Bioenergy Association.

The Sweden Ukraine Bioenergy Cooperation Forum was attended by both Swedish and Ukrainian stakeholders in the bioenergy and renewable energy sector. The forum was an opportunity to exchange ideas and best practices of sustainable development of biomass resources to produce electricity, heating and transport fuels. Separate sessions in the forum focussed on already existing cooperation in energy, bioenergy development in Sweden and Ukraine, technological solutions for efficient conversion of biomass and waste to energy, and projects and financing for the development of bioenergy in Ukraine.

From Bioenergy association of Ukraine the event was attended by: the head of the Board of the Bioenergy association of Ukraine – Georgii Geletukha, Head of Supervisory Board – Volodymyr Maistryshyn and Board Member – Ivan Nadein

Speakers from Ukraine also included Mr. Oleksandr Dombrovskyi, Member of Ukrainian Parliament and Acting Chairman of Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Committee on Fuel and Energy Complex, Nuclear Policy and Nuclear Safety who informed about the legislative support for the development of renewables and bioenergy in Ukraine. The core message was ‘It’s time to invest in Ukraine Now’. Also, Mr. Sergiy Savchuk, Head of State Agency on Energy Efficiency and Energy Saving informed about the investment potential of renewable energy and bioenergy in Ukraine. The country requires an increase of 16 GW of electricity and heat/cooling plant capacity and 423 thousand toe. of renewable fuels before 2020 to implement National Renewable Energy Action Plan (NREAP) till 2020.

Info Day FORBIOWe are glad to announce that on October 11-12, 2018, the Ukrainian Gas Forum will traditionally be held at the Intercontinental Kyiv Hotel.

This year, the Bioenergy Association of Ukraine is involved in the organization of the biogas and biomethane section of the Ukrainian Gas Forum.

The fourth time, the international community will meet to discuss the issues that currently exist in the gas market of Ukraine, suggest ways to introduce market mechanisms in the gas sector and make suggestions on how to make the Ukrainian gas market more transparent and competitive. The forum differs from other events, first of all, in discussion discourse, high professional level of debate and versatility of approaches to finding out "gas" problems.

During the past events, the participants tried to clarify the situation with the successes and failures of the Ukrainian gas market reforming. This year, our diverse panel of highly-qualified experts will focus their attention on the overarching question:  when will Ukrainian gas market become open and competitive? The current situation in the gas sector requires to broaden the horizons of reforms and attempts to avoid possible «traps» on the way of the establishment of a liberalized natural gas market in Ukraine.

Among participants: international and Ukrainian gas companies representatives, recognized gas experts, state officials and the civil society representatives.

Field trip of FORBIO workshopWhat is it?
This is an ecological project about achievements, changes, and results!
After the adoption of the draft law "On Strategic Environmental Assessment", according to which, in the course of developing future state, local or sectoral programs, probable negative consequences for the environment and human health will be taken into account, ECO Transformation-2018 is especially relevant.

The purpose of the project is to search ecologically responsible enterprises and organizations, to promote information and public support to participating companies, and to implement a large-scale PR year-long campaign.

In December 2018, a ceremony ECO-Transformation-2018 will be held in Kiev with the invitation of all project participants, partners, and sponsors. Special journal issue "Eco-Leaders 2018" will be prepared and distributed.
