An investment project that allowed a company to fill the gap in the local supply chain for wood chips in the north-west of Ireland.
Projects & Practice
Punkalaidun municipality conducted a feasibility study for setting up a biogas plant producing energy from manure, which resulted in an investment decision.
The project aimed to improve farmers’ soil management skills and know-how on profitable and resource-efficient farming.
A farm used RDP support to set up a micro district heating system to produce heating from wood biomass and at the same time expand its leisure and tourism facilities.
Two RDP funded projects enabled a company specialised on biomass heating to grow by financing the purchase of mobile wood chipper and later on a pelleting system.
RDP funding helped convert a disused building into an inspiring renewable energy visitor centre in Feldheim – Germany’s first village to be supplied with 100 % renewable energy.
