EDINBURGH, Scotland, March 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
Edinburgh has been chosen as the host city for this year's Bioenergy Insight Conference & Expo from 4-5 October, organized by the Bioenergy Insight Magazine.
According to the European Union's 2020 objectives, bioenergy is expected to contribute half of the EU's 20% renewable energy target. EU countries have already agreed on a new renewable energy target of at least 27% of final energy consumption in the EU as a whole by 2030. Bioenergy is expected to form a crucial part of these targets.
Furthermore, the number of biogas plants in Europe has tripled in the past 6 years and biomass is continuing to help diversify Europe's energy mix.
Undoubtedly, bioenergy markets are growing and commercial opportunities exist for organisations wishing to take advantage of this burgeoning and constantly evolving industry.
The Bioenergy Insight Conference & Expo aims to bring together producers and stakeholders to discuss and network in the historic city of Edinburgh. Co-hosted with the extremely popular and well-established Biofuels International Conference & Expo, now in its 10th year, over 200 delegates are expected to convene to hear top-level presentations on an array of bioenergy related topics such as plant financing, coal to biomass, sustainability, market challenges and wood pellets to name but a few.
Attendees, exhibitors and sponsors at this year's event will also benefit from an enlarged conference and exhibition area as it will be co-hosted with the Bioenergy Insight Conference & Expo. The organisers are also planning site visits and to really whet the appetite of those present, a whisky tour.
Peter Patterson, publisher of the global journals Biofuels International and Bioenergy Insight, states:
"We're hugely excited about hosting the event in Edinburgh. Our research amongst last year's delegates showed great interest in the city and Edinburgh has a rich heritage for attendees to enjoy and explore before, after and even during the meeting." He goes on to say, "through the publishing of our leading title, Bioenergy Insight, we feel now is the right time to bring that expertise to a conference format. We have built up a reputation for organising high level conferences and we are regularly complimented on the networking opportunities that our events offer. We have a few novel ideas for Edinburgh so we're sure people won't be disappointed."
