SECRE - Social Entrepreneurship In Bioenergy

Social entrepreneurship in renewable energy

Social entrepreneurship in renewable energy is a fairly new concept although renewable energy sector is an ideal environment for it. The socio-economic relevance of the social economy and social entrepreneurship is also widely recognized in European and national policies.

Funded by the Northern Periphery Programme, the SECRE project is aiming to foster sustainable and effective energy production alternatives especially in sparsely populated areas and to expand social entrepreneurship into bioenergy sector. SECRE is developing services that allow communities to apply renewable energy solutions in local economic development.

SECRE consists of a transnational network of expertise on bioenergy and social entrepreneurship and the project includes 12 partners from Finland, Sweden, Norway, Iceland, Great Britain and Ireland. Lead partner of SECRE is the Karelia University of Applied Sciences.
