November 27, 2015 - News reports have claimed this week that winter is finally approaching and that temperatures are poised to drop across Europe.

With many market participants hoping for a cold snap in the coming weeks, we take a look at other factors that will impact wood pellet demand:

•How will governmental subsidy support impact European utilities? What are the timeframes for implementation of U.K. subsidy support and the SDE+ scheme in the Netherlands?

•How can the industry collaborate more effectively to proactively tackle negative press and reinforce the benefits of biomass as renewable, reliable and affordable?

•Which new markets will be the most significant demand centres? What can be expected from Japan and biomass for power generation in the U.S.?


•How successfully can wood pellets compete with other fuels in the residential market?

These pressing issues will all be discussed at Argus Biomass 2016
