The DiBiCoo Project
The Digital Global Biogas Cooperation (DiBiCoo) project is part of the EU’s Horizon 2020 Societal Challenge ‘Secure, clean and efficient energy’, under the call ‘Market Uptake Support’.
The target importing emerging and developing countries are Argentina, Ethiopia, Ghana, South Africa and Indonesia. Additionally, the project involves partners from Germany, Austria, Belgium and Latvia. The project started in October 2019 with a 33 months-timeline and a budget of 3 million Euros. It is implemented by the consortium and coordinated by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH.
The overall objective of the project is to prepare markets in developing and emerging countries for the import of sustainable biogas/biomethane technologies from Europe. DiBiCoo aims to mutually benefit importing and exporting countries through facilitating dialogue between European biogas industries and biogas stakeholders or developers from emerging and developing markets. The consortium works to advance knowledge transfer and experience sharing to improve local policies that allow increased market uptake by target countries. This will be facilitated through a digital matchmaking platform and classical capacity development mechanisms for improved networking, information sharing, and technical/financial competences. Furthermore, DiBiCoo will identify five demo cases up to investment stages in the 5 importing countries. Thus, the project will help mitigate GHG emissions and increase the share of global renewable energy generation. The project also contributes to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG 7) for ‘Affordable and clean energy”, among others.

The Matchmaking Event
In the frame of the DiBiCoo project, three matchmaking events are organised. The objective is to bring Exporters and Importers in the field of biogas and gasification together in order to stimulate corporations and new projects in the field of biogas.
After successful implementation of the first two matchmaking events, this 3rd matchmaking event on 23rd November 2021 is organised as a fully virtual event. In an introductory session, general information on the project and the biogas matchmaking platform will be presented. Afterwards, an overview of the ongoing pre-feasibility studies of the DiBiCoo demo cases in the targeted countries will be given. Then, European biogas companies will show you some of their innovative technologies and services. Finally, the matchmaking process will be explained.
In the second session, all participants are kindly invited to start networking on the wonder.me platform.
