IrBEA 21st National Bioenergy Conference Tuesday 11th October 2022 Lyrath Hotel, Kilkenny
IrBEA are delighted to announce Bord na Móna as Headline Sponsor for this event.
IrBEA's 21st National Bioenergy Conference 2022 will attract senior-level executives, decision-makers, and a wide variety of stakeholders across business, government, state agencies, energy producers and users. The National Bioenergy conference creates an environment in which to network, do business and access knowledge and information on the latest developments, trends, strategies, and policies relating to bioenergy, renewables, climate action, sustainability, and decarbonisation.
The focus of this conference will be on the role of bioenergy in reducing costs, carbon, and supply risks. The conference will outline the status and potential for increased utilisation of solid biomass, woodfuels, biogas/biomethane, biofuels and biochar.
This conference is particularly relevant in the current time of high fossil energy prices, security of energy supply challenges. There is an urgent need for sustainable decarbonisation and climate action. The Irish bioenergy sector is unique in that it can provide an indigenous energy solution to all the current challenges. Bioenergy can produce continuous, storable, and dispatchable renewable energy delivered through local supply chains, offering employment opportunities and economic activity.
The Irish bioenergy sector will require investment, supports, incentives and the right policy measures in place to ensure the continued sustainability, growth, and development of the sector. Speakers at this conference will explore the following areas:
Carbon accounting and sustainable models in Irish businesses
Energy costs and the role of bioenergy in reducing supply chain risks
Bioenergy as part of a suite of emissions reduction measures
The current role of bioenergy in businesses, homes, and farms
The challenge and opportunity for bioenergy to decarbonise heat, transport, electricity, and agriculture
Key challenges and opportunities for bioenergy in Ireland's low carbon transition
Accelerating the ambition in Bioenergy
IrBEA would like to thank Ethanol Europe and South East Energy Agency, Gas Networks Ireland and Glas Energy for their support in Co-sponsoring this event.
