About the ENERGY BARGE project


The Danube region offers a great potential for green energy in the form of biomass along the Danube river. The main objective of ENERGY BARGE is to exploit this potential in a sustainable way, considering the Renewable Energy Directive 2009/28/EC, the EU2020 climate goals and the EU Danube Region Strategy’s objective, thereby increasing energy security and efficiency in the Danube countries. An outstanding feature of the ENERGY BARGE project is its cross-sectoral approach; the project brings together key actors along the entire value chain, biomass companies and Danube ports as well as relevant public authorities and policy stakeholders by a transnational know-how transfer and cooperation. The project maps value chains and facilitates the market uptake of biomass, supports better connected transport systems for green logistics and provides practical solutions and policy guidelines. 

The Agency for Renewable Resources (FNR) coordinates the ENERGY BARGE project consortium with fourteen partners from Austria, Bulgaria, Croatia, Germany, Hungary, Slovakia and Romania.

During the final conference, strategies and recommendations to improve energy security through biomass logistics in the Danube region will be presented and discussed with the audience. The project partners from the logistics sector will outline the results of their pre-feasibility studies to define development plans and investment needs to strengthen ports as logistics hubs for the bioenergy sector.
