Fuel production based on biomass in the new states – Supervision of model projects in the New Federal States
On behalf of the German Federal Ministry of Transport, Building and Urban Development (BMVBS) and the Federal Institute for Research on Building, Urban Affairs and Spatial Development (BBSR), for several years the B.&S.U. mbH conducts a study on the usage of renewable energy sources in rural areas with the focus on “Fuel production based on biomass in the new states – Supervision of model projects in the New Federal States”.
During the current phase, which started in 2009 and deals with the practical implementation of the results of the previous study, the B.&S.U. mbH takes over the supervision and support of the Markus-community Hauteroda as well as of the municipality of Hauteroda on their way of becoming a bio-energy-village. For this purpose a biogas plant powered by renewable resources of the region shall be built for the energy supply of the Markus-community Hauteroda as well as of the municipality of Hauteroda. In this context, the B.&S.U. mbH takes over the set-up and the supervision of an active group consisting of representatives of enterprises and the community, organises corresponding informative meetings, develops a feasibility study, clarifies the future operator form and supports the founding of an operating company, the completion of preliminary contracts, the granting of a preliminary planning study and the preparation of the financial and capital investment planning.
In addition, the B.&S.U. mbH is responsible for the management and the documentation of the entire process.
