What the coaching is about? Continue reading.
The experience so far shows that there is still a considerable potential of heat to be utilized. One of the main aims of the BiogasHeat project is to share expertise and experiences on how to use this available heat in an efficient way. Therefore, we are looking for coaching partners abroad in order to share our results with regard to technical, economic, legal and political issues.
In the earlier steps of the project we were able to gather valuable insights with regard to best practice examples, promising business cases and regulatory necessities which we would like to pass on. Our offer – which does not involve any specific coaching costs for you – is directed to regional authorities as well as operators of existing plants, operators and planners of future plants and heat consumers and we would like to kindly ask for your participation.
As selected coaching partner you will benefit from a visit by our consortium which will include a check of your facilities and a first round of training which will equip you with valuable insights. In a second round the consortium invites a few coaching partners to a second training in one of the project countries to allow for a more detailed and tailored approach. However, even if not selected the consortium will keep you informed and supply you with all training and coaching materials developed in the course of the project.
In order to declare your willingness to participate please fill in and sign the letter in Annex I (see link to the document below) which serves as Expression of Interest. The first selection will be based on the evaluation criteria that can be found in Annex II. Please return the form before 31 May 2014. Information on the evaluation will be published no later than 1 July 2014.
