June 26, 2024
By 6th European Conference Biomass PowerON

After last year successful edition with over 110 biomass specialists and nearly 30 excellent speakers, we have pleasure to invite you to the 6th European Conference Biomass PowerON taking place on October 9 and 10, 2024. This year, we are moving to Copenhagen, Denmark.
The global biomass market is anticipated to experience significant growth from 2024 to 2031. With steady expansion in 2023 and increasing strategic initiatives by key players, the market is anticipated to grow. Europe, in particular, is exploring biomass and pellets as important alternatives amid the current energy crisis and mounting concerns over environmental sustainability. Transitioning to these renewable sources for heat and power is pivotal for enhancing European energy security and combating climate change.
This year, we are focusing on the utilization of biomass and pellets for generating heat and power, the pivotal role of bioenergy in decarbonization efforts, and the forest industry’s outlook regarding the escalating demand for wood biomass and pellets. Moreover, with ongoing dialogues within the EU concerning policies and regulations pertaining to green solutions and the positioning of biomass within them, we’ll delve into policies and regulations on the bioenergy sector.
