Introduction to the Fruit Basket, project Output Library

The Baltic Sea Region (BSR) Programme 2007-2013 financed in total 90 transnational cooperation projects covering a wide scope of themes. In order to share the work done with you, the Programme has created this online basket of projects – a Fruit Basket if you will (formally called the Output Library).

The Fruit Basket may be used for diverse purposes. For example, when you have a specific challenge in your area with regard to transport, you may want to find out what has been done previously in that area and you will most likely find useful documents that would increase your knowledge in the specific topic. Take your pick!

Guidelines for Innovative Use of EU Funds for Measures in the Housing Sector and Deprived Urban Areas
Date:
Jan 2012
URL:
Description:
The guideline provides a practical approach to available funding options on both national and EU level. Furthermore, financing options and schemes identified and implemented by the project partners are presented. The innovative use of ERDF is explained by different available options, e.g. special grant schemes and loan programmes based on revolving funds. The guidelines can be used by local, regional or national actors when drawing up financing schemes for energy efficient housing refurbishment and/or the revitalisation of deprived urban neighbourhoods.

Eco-Region Good Practice Database
Date:
Jan 2012
Description:
During the EcoRegion project (2009-2011) partners have collected good practices and fed them into this database. In the database you can find a selected set of good practices for regional initiatives towards sustainable development, which have already been applied in one or more regions all over the Baltic Sea area. To date, the database comprises almost 200 good practice examples.
Title:
The "Baltic Biogas Foresight": Biogas production options and potential for the Baltic Sea Region.
Date:
Mar 2013
URL:
Description:
Without stable and secure biogas supply, no transport company will commit to invest in biogas as fuel. Studies show that the production potential is often more than ten times as high as actual production. Traditionally, biogas is produced from wastewater treatment plants and landfills, since investment costs in these sectors are relatively low. Other possibilities to produce biogas are also examined to meet the increasing demand in the region, largest potential exists in the agricultural sector. Technical improvements in order to improve energy efficiency have been studied.
Title:
Integrated regional infrastructure planning
Date:
Mar 2013
URL:
Description:
The paper includes comparison of different ways of distributing biogas taking into account economical and environmental factors. It also covers conversion of depots for biogas use as well as planning and construction of pipelines for biogas distribution. In addiiton, comparisons of different fuelling systems have been made. The comparison of the distribution network builds to a large extent on lessons learnt of partners. These studies have been used by cities in the process of implementing biogas systems in public transport.
