The European biomass power generation market continues to expand with utilities and energy intensive industries converting existing coal fired plants or building new ones. Forecasts estimate that the global installed capacity of biomass could reach 150GW by 2030.
This year’s event brought together representatives from leading utilities, developers, investors, feedstock and technology suppliers to share experiences and do business. In just two days, delegates heard first-hand case studies on developing power plants, finance, fuel supply chains and the latest developments in torrefaction.

This event has seen a year on year growth, and with 36% of attendees in 2011 at board or director level, it provides an excellent opportunity to generate leads essential to the future success of your biomass business.

Co-located at the 7th annual World Biofuels Markets Congress, delegates had access to the strategic keynote sessions, exhibition and networking opportunities with 1500+ bioenergy executives.

"This is the place to be. As a networking event, it is hard to find anything similar” Poyry
