SR Bioenergy Conference 2012
|Title:||SR Bioenergy Conference 2012|
|Venue:||Perth Concert Hall, Perth|
|Date(s):||19 June 2012|
The Scottish Renewables Bioenergy Conference will highlight the scope of the opportunity that the worlds natural biological resources present to Scotland to meet our heat, transport and electricity needs.
This year’s conference will tackle the debate around whether there is a role/need for large scale biomass in Scotland’s energy mix. It will look at what other biological resources we have available to us and how we can best utilise these to generate the greatest possible amount of energy. Renewable heat is increasingly important not only as heats accounts for around 50% of total energy demand but also to provide energy security, tackle fuel poverty and play a key role in delivering our carbon reduction targets of 42% in 2020 and 80% in 2050.
This conference will discuss phase 2 of the Renewable Heat Incentive and look at some of the challenges of deploying renewable heat technologies. Innovation in the bioenergy sector has been rife not just on the technology side but also in the operating practices. We will hear from some leading academics and developers who are using innovative ways to maximise the feedstocks available to them and displace increasing amounts of carbon dioxide.
Forth Energy are hosting an exhibition stand at this event; you will have the opportunity to network with their team during the scheduled breaks.
