In the primarily realizable chain the Egererdo Close Corporation is going to function as a key actor, being the producer of raw material and the processing partner as well. In the demand side firstly selfgovernments of the target area and their institutions (mayor’s office, local culture centres, schools etc.) seem to be the proper partners with transferring their heating systems to the utilization of woodchips. In the second stage to bring enterprises and inhabitants into the process is also possible. Successful investments of local self-governments and the effects of savings in costs of heating can promote other possible actors as well.
The involvement of self-governments is crucial, in order to achieve this the contribution of the micro regional agency is compulsory, as they are in a day-to-day connection to local self-governments.
The involvement of enterprises can be done through the local Commercial and Industrial Chamber. In recent stage we may state that enterprises in general pay attention to RUBIRES, but without concrete ideas a successful partnership can not be set up with them in a longer distance.
The involvement of commercial partners is a must in the next steps of research and organizing. In order to gain it we must produce an outline of the value-chain and to discuss with primary partners.
This participation analysis seeks to identify all person and institution involved in a project, in addition to the target group and the implementing agency, and speculates on their expected support or opposition to the program. This analysis is used at the preliminary stages of a project in order to incorporate interests and expectations of persons and groups significant to the programme.Organizations and authorities at different levels and interest groups have different motives and interests. It is of fundamental importance to analyze these interests and expectations both early on in the planning process and later again during the implementation of the project.
The most superficial example can be described as ‘information-led’, characterised by a situation where local people are informed of a proposed development; at this level, local people have no involvement with development other than as passive recipients of information. At another end of the spectrum, it is possible to envisage projects that are ‘ownership-led’ with a high degree of local control. In between these extremes, a range of positions will exist that can be described as varying degrees of ‘partnership’ between local people, interest groups, statutory institutions such as local authorities and private sector developers. More local or community-embedded examples of these could involve local use of energy generated by local plant, as might exist in a local district heating scheme, a ‘private wire’ mini-grid electricity network or generation technologies such as solar photovoltaic panels on community buildings. Economic benefits can be locally embedded through local distribution of profit generated by sales of energy or financial benefits from energy saved by efficiency activities local training and employment opportunities and local shareholding. Shareholding can also involve individuals resident outside of the local community, forming part of a more spatially dispersed ‘community of interest’ involved in, and supportive of, the development.
