Within the confines of Earth Observation Scientific Knowledge and Technology Transfer in Hungary (EKAT) titled ESA PECS project we gained forum for utilization of our earth observation (EO) knowledge and possibility for further development of experiences. The project aims the horizontal preparation of Hungary for ESA membership - for a dynamically developing sphere in the common part of science, technology and business. For the efficient transfer and dissemination, we preconceived target groups and principles to reach main take-up points and to open new forums of information exchange. Nowadays, user-friendly service, complex supply and real-validation process all have great importance. Joining units of suitable data choice, entire ingestion-processing chains and ergonomic interfaces can only offer a timely and professional solution for the challenges of industry and business sectors. It has to be clearly seen, that information and communication technologies (ICT) and information control becomes a more and more significant part of EO services. © 2013 Copyright Taylor and Francis Group, LLC.

The need for renewal energy supply is increasing due to EU2020 aims. At the same time, agricultural areas in rural regions of Central and East Europe are being abandoned due to urbanization processes. Uncontrolled landuse changes after abandonment are leading to spontaneous growth of biomass, which is resulted by the spread of weeds and opportunistic invasive species. Our EUREKA financed technology development project aimed to provide information about the location, the volume and the dynamic tendencies of these biomass sites in order to make them operatively accessible for utilization in (bio-) energy supply. In Northern-Transdanubia we located with satellite imagery over 3000 agricultural areas with over 8000 ha area, which are affected with woody increment. In local sample regions we carried out biomass volume estimation with the integrative utilization of Copernicus Sentinel-1 imagery. © 2015 for this paper by its authors.
