The groundwork for REGBIE+ is the fact that the most important and prevalent renewable energy source used for heating in the EU is biomass in its various forms. Nevertheless, regional market structures are developed in a quite unbalanced way throughout Europe and the involved stakeholders are unevenly experienced. REGBIE+ involved 13 partners active in 13 regions from 11 EU countries. The project aimed at forwarding regional initiatives bundling measures like marketing, information, training and overall awareness.
