Welcome to the BEn-Project!
The utilisation of biomass as a renewable energy source which is locally available and storable offers the opportunity to regional authorities to actively participate in the energy supply of their region. During the three-year project BEn a user-friendly regional energy planning tool will be developed. It will describe the real conditions and be equipped with a simulation tool which supports decision making and efficient energy generation from biomass. [more]
Fraunhofer UMSICHT, EFTAS GmbH and the Institute für Photogrammetrie und Geoinformation of the Leibnitz University prepare a feasibility study of a remote sensing based system to monitor and determine biomass by the end of 2013. The project aims at utilizing remote sensing data to generate geodata for the spatial distribution of biomass. The produced data will be linked to the BEn register.... [more]
