CARPATHIAN BIOENERGY

ABOUT THE PROJECT:

The project is focused on education, dissemination of information and preparation of investments and the implementation of the replacement of a boiler using fossil fuels with a biomass boiler.

The main goal of the project is the development of alternative energy in the Transcarpathian region of Ukraine and Eastern Slovakia, to which the improvement of the possibilities for the use of RES and the expansion of the number of consumers and producers of energy biomass should contribute.

The target groups include local authorities (state or self-governing); educational institutions and potential consumers and producers of energy biomass.
