ISABEL is all about promoting, supporting and developing community biogas in Europe. The project is set on providing all the framework conditions for biogas communities to shape, develop and thrive. It works on all angles to pave the way for the transition from traditional supply chains to community ownership and take full advantage of the ample societal benefits of regional community-driven biogas systems, fuelled and inspired by Social Innovation principles. To realize this vision ISABEL will employ its 5E strategy with the following objectives:
Educate: Re-position biogas energy by re-branding it as a public good.
Engage: Enable the development of regional Biogas Communities.
Empower: Utilize the created momentum through Social Innovation and Public Participation.Expand: Maximise impact through transfer and replication.
Evaluate: Assess the local interventions and draft lessons learned and guidelines.
