Workshop: SEAPs & Biomass – an opportunity for municipalities
23 September, Valladolid, Spain
Registration through this link
In the frame of the European project RES H / C SPREAD which main objective is to develop action pilot plans for the promotion of renewable energies in heating and cooling, in 6 European regions being one of them Castilla y Leon, it is organized this workshop. The workshop is focus on working with local authorities or technicians, interested in Sustainable Energy Action Plans (SEAPs) and to expose the potential of a local resource such as the biomass for those SEAPs.
The use of biomass means using local resources, close to the end user and in an increasingly efficient way of utilization. This workshop try to show the possibilities of this local renewable energy resource such as biomass and its potential use for the improvement of sustainable local policies. Therefore, it will introduce subject as strategies for its promotion at regional level, the importance of the biomass in a Sustainable Energy Action Plan, the possibilities to finance biomass systems and examples of local authorities who have already opted for biomass as a solution for their local heat demand.
The workshop will have presentations from Castilla y León Government (Regional Energy Agency of Castilla y Leon and General Directorate of Energy and Mines), the European initiative of the EC Covenant of Mayors, the Asturias Government (Asturian Energy Agency) and local entities that show examples of local biomass applications.
Aimed to: municipalities, provincial and other governments, engineering & consulting, professional associations, energy companies, or other interested actors.
