Stakeholders from bioenergy and renewables sector gathered in Croke Park for major bioenergy conference

The IrBEA (Irish Bioenergy Association) National Bioenergy Conference looked at several opportunities to expand Ireland’s bioenergy sector – including opportunities for agriculture in terms of on-farm bioenergy. 

 

The purpose of the conference, and of IrBEA itself, is to serve the renewable heat agenda by improving access to Irish biomass supplies, enabled by improvements to the biomass supply chain infrastructure from mobilisation of the private forestry supply, and also the promotion of energy crops.

 

Our CEO Paddy Phelan & the Vice President of  IrBEA, opened the event on the 26th of February in Croke Park, Dublin.

The IrBEA conference titled “Bioenergy – Inspiring the Industry with Opportunity and Vision” brought together professionals, industry representatives, researchers, farmers, foresters, technology providers and many important stakeholders across the bioenergy sectors of biomass, biogas, biofuels, energy crops and wood fuels.

 

The conference provided a platform to discuss all aspects of the bioenergy industry, its role in the transition to a low carbon economy and the opportunity and role bioenergy has in addressing climate change.

 

3 Counties Energy Agency team members Shane and Patrick were in attendance with a stand on REGENERGY.  Read more about the RegEnergy Project here.
