ENERGY BARGE is a project implemented under the INTERREG Danube Transnational Programme, co-financed by European Union funds. A unique feature of this project is its cross-sectoral approach between the bioenergy industry and the navigation logistics sector along the Danube River.

The main objective of the project ENERGY BARGE is to exploit the potential for green energy in the form of biomass along the Danube River in a sustainable way, thereby increasing enegy security and efficiency in the Danube countries, considering the Renewable Energy Directive 2009/28/EC, the EU2020 climate goals and EU Danube Region Strategy´s objective.

An outstanding feature of the ENERGY BARGE project is its cross-sectoral approach: the project will bring together key actors along the entire value chain, stakeholders from the bioenergy industry, Danube ports as well as relevant public authorities and policy stakeholders. This shall support transnational know-how transfer and cooperation.

ENERGY BARGE will build a platform for the Exchange of experiences and best practices, extending the deployment of biomass for energy production in the Danube region.

ENERGY BARGE is co-funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).

Duration: 30 months (January 2017 - June 2019)
