Accelerated Penetration of Small-Scale Biomass and Solar Technologies (ACCESS)

Download PDFDownload PDF
The ACCESS project addresses small-scale technologies that utilise biomass and solar energy for heating and hot-water supply in dwellings with individual and local heating systems in Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania, and Slovakia. The project aimed to contribute to the large scale market penetration of these technologies by 1) developing a virtual market network; 2) exploring systematically the biomass energy potential and perspectives for its increase; 3) developing a method for the identification of optimal combined schemes; 4) promoting standards for both the concerned technologies and biomass products; 5) deveoping training courses; 6) elaborating optimal financing schemes; 7) dissemination activities.


  • Biomass energy potential - database and perspectives to its development
  • Method and guidance for identification of the parameters of the optimal combined scheme – solar & biomass
  • Awareness on the state-of-the-art technologies and standards in the "old" EU member states, as well as on the methods to identify the least-cost technology
  • Proposals for financing schemes
  • Web-based market for the concerned technologies

Lessons learned

  • Providing more information to both market actors and end users
  • Supporting local technology production and technology transfer from the EU
  • Developing and promoting standards for biomass fuels and biomass and solar technologies
