This multi-million Euro project helped harness geothermal energy to produce heat and power by drilling wells into reservoirs of hot water that are found deep underneath the earth’s surface.
Projects & Practice
A regional cooperative chain for biomass was established to respond to the increasing demand for woodchip.
A canal stream was reconstructed to get extra water storage capacity and to improve the water quality and biodiversity in the surrounding area.
LEADER support was used to exploit the potential of using large quantities of waste wood from landscape management as a renewable energy source.
In an area where cattle breeding is predominent, LEADER funding helped explore the potentials of producing biogas from manure produced in the farms.
