This year’s conference will focus on the need to accelerate the uptake of bioenergy technology deployment in Ireland. IrBEA acknowledges that most larger businesses and new start-ups are aware of their responsibilities to be more sustainable and energy efficient. At this year’s conference, IrBEA wants to promote the role bioenergy can play in this transition from fossil fuels, helping businesses reduce costs, improve energy security, reduce supply chain risks, reduce carbon footprints, and improve company sustainability ratings.

The event is targeted at a range of interested parties including: bioenergy project developers, utility providers, policymakers, political representatives, financiers, large energy users, businesses, engineers, landowners and environmental groups. Attendees value the opportunity to meet those actively involved in the bioenergy sector, to extend their network and make new contacts. It is also a chance to hear about latest developments, successful projects and case studies in the sector.

We will also be offering sponsorship opportunities, further details can be found on the event website. If you would like to discuss this further with us, please contact Teresa O’Brien at 0861256709 or Seán Finan at
