BACKGROUND

 

The Digital Global Biogas Cooperation (DiBiCoo) project is an effort to link european technology providers with emerging and developing markets for new investment opportunities and knowledge transfer.

OBJECTIVE

 

DiBiCoo is a cooperation project between biogas technology exporting and importing countries, with the overall objective to support the European biogas/biomethane industry by preparing markets for the export of sustainable biogas/biomethane technologies from Europe to developing and emerging countries.

 

AIM

KEY IMPACTS

 

 

Facilitate cooperation among relevant stakeholders in the biogas industry from Europe, with stakeholders from developing and emerging countries.

 

Share information on available European technologies as well as on the framework conditions, market opportunities, research needs, financing opportunities and project ideas in the potential importing countries.

 

Develop digital support tools for capacity building, networking and dissemination of online information to facilitate technology exports and act as a database for interested stakeholders.

 

Support the development of at least five biogas projects in target countries as “demo cases” up to, or close to the investment stage.

 

Promote and improve national, regional and local policies, supporting further market uptake in the target countries by developing and disseminating best practices.

Facilitate the introduction of biogas technologies and increase the share of renewable energy in final energy consumption;

 

Lead to substantial and measurable optimisation of project developments, whilst still fully address the need for environmental impact assessments and public engagement;

 

Develop more informed policy, market support and financial frameworks, notably at national, regional and local level, leading to more cost-effective support schemes and lower financing costs for RES facilities.
