Project summary

This project intends to develop a supportive framework for encouraging the growth of local markets for bio- fuels as a low carbon fuel for Local Authorities and other public sector transport fleets across the EU. Bio-NETT will enable and support attitudinal change and capacity building within public sector organisations, the agricultural sector (including young farmers and rural women) and the wider supply chain. This will help them to recognise the benefits of sustainable practices around the theme of the development and use of bio–fuels. Ultimately the project seeks to increase the supply and demand of liquid bio-fuels by creating a more integrated and cohesive market structure, linking suppliers and users through regional networking in both the urban and rural context.

To achieve this, the project aims to:
• Establish local supplier networks covering the whole the supply chain from growers through fuel production and distribution to public sector users;
• Build capacity within these networks through skills development and examining financial support mechanisms;
• The facilitation of at least 2 potential local transport bio-fuels projects, to include public sector organisations and suppliers in each partner regional network;
• Carry out information and awareness raising with bio- fuels producers and public sector fleet managers;
• Evaluate the success ot these networks and develop best practice in supporting local bio-fuel supply chains;
• Disseminate the results at the National and European level;
• Establish a local bio-fuels information exchange and network centre in each partner region.

A key output of the project will be the establishment of a best practice framework tools for bio-fuel supply networks that can be used as a model across the partner countries. The framework will address questions such as how the networks are established, promoted, monitored and communicated to potential suppliers and users? What type of approach is required to maximise benefits to partners and encourage active and meaningful integration between actors transport addition the project will establish a set of tools that would form the basis of a new best practice framework for future bio-fuel supply networks. These tools would address the following service requirements;
• Availability of financial resources based on regional need.
• Operational expertise such as may be provided via an ESCO.
• Strategies for overcoming technical and institutional barriers with regards to production, distribution and use.
• Sources of technical support for ensuring bio-fuels expertise is developed.
• Local considerations - demonstration schemes and planning consents.
• By the application of a regional approach to bio-fuel networks would enforce the concepts of bio–regionalism and permaculture, which in turn leads to a promotion of the joint interests in eco–sustainable planning policies for Regional Administrators and Farmers. This level of regional network best practice also offers the scope for integrating with other development policies, in order to achieve a coherent delivery of Regional and Local Government services.


STEER projects promote the more sustainable energy use in transport (i.e. increased energy efficiency, new and renewable fuel sources, and the take-up of alternatively propelled vehicles). The specific focus is on alternative vehicle propulsion, policy measures for the more efficient use of energy in transport, and strenghthening the knowledge of local management agencies in the transport field.
