ISABEL was a H2020 project that its vision was to promote, support and develop community biogas in Europe. The project was set on providing all the framework conditions for biogas communities to shape, develop and thrive.
It worked 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 local community-driven biogas systems, fuelled and inspired by Social Innovation principles.
ISABEL applied its strategy on three European regions providing a complementary synthesis of evidence:
- Baden-Württemberg – Lake Constance Bioenergy Region (Germany),
- Yorkshire and The Humber (United Kingdom), and
- Central and Eastern Macedonia & Thrace (Greece)
