The Nordic Baltic region has the highest share, as well as the fastest increase, of renewable energy in EU. The natural conditions for bioenergy are very favourable in all the Scandinavian and Baltic countries, with good farmlands and productive forests. In the Baltic states, the dependence on imported fossil fuels is an economical and political challenge.
At the same time, the indigenous biomass resources are abundant. Therefore, bioenergy offers an opportunity to decrease the import dependency, reduce costs, and create business development and jobs in the domestic economies. The technical solutions are available. At the Nordic Baltic Bioenergy Conference we will share experiences and present state-of-the-art technologies, e.g. in the fields of biobased combined heat and power, pellet production and use, and biofuels production from cellulosic feedstocks. We will discuss market development and policy instruments. But above all, we will meet, talk and make business.
The Nordic Baltic Bioenergy Conference Riga is this year’s largest regional conference in the bioenergy sector. Nordic Baltic Bioenergy Conference is an associated event of the Latvian Presidency in EU Council and takes place adjacent to the EU Energy Ministers’ Council on April 15-16, 2015 in Riga. Latbio and Svebio wish you all most welcome to Riga to share knowledge and opportunities to develop sustainable and profitable energy solutions.
