ISABEL is 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 and works on all angles in order to pave the way for the transition from traditional supply chains to community ownership and to take full advantage of the ample societal benefits of local community-driven biogas systems, fuelled and inspired by social innovation principles.
ISABEL will unfold simultaneously in three regions across Europe, located in the United Kingdom (Yorkshire and Humber), Germany (Baden-Württemberg), and Greece (Central and Eastern Macedonia & Thrace). The three targeted countries and regions are notably in different phases of maturity and development, providing a complementary synthesis of evidence. For realising its aims and objectives the project brings together and uses as a baseline the following three pillars.
