IrBEA’s 15th National Bioenergy Conference
IrBEA’s 15th National Bioenergy Conference will be on Wednesday 3 February 2016 at the Castleknock Hotel and Country Club, Dublin 15. This will be a crucial year for the renewable energy industry in Ireland as a new policy framework should be in place in the Energy White Paper and a finalised Bioenergy Plan. In the Republic the industry expects considerable clarity for roll-out of a Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) and new Renewable Electricity Support Scheme (RES-E), while the market in the North wants consistent enabling policy following UK-wide elections in 2015. IrBEA has a strong line up of speakers, both international and national, presenting industry models, policy perspectives and investment opportunities on biomass, biogas, energy crops, etc.
Hub director, Professor Patricia Thornley will be presenting “Bioenergy policy, challenges and misconceptions” during the policy session.
