The National Action Plans for renewable energies required by the EU oblige the EU member states for the first time to specify binding minimum targets for increasing their share of renewable energies on their primary energy consumption. Studies have shown that biomass will play a central role in future energy supplies, particularly in Central Europe.

The Central European Biomass Conference 2011 , held from 26 - 29 January 2011 in Graz, presents top lecturers from 16 countries – amongst them top speakers from the relevant EU Commission departments. An up-to-date overview of the political, economic and technological developments in the field of biomass for energy use will be provided. „Climate change and secure energy supply“ and „Political strategies for the development of bioenergy“ are the topics of the high-level plenary sessions of the conference. Further topics:

  • Raw material availability and provision
  • Conversion technologies for heating, power and fuels
  • Industrial applications and the funding of bioenergy projects
  • Environmental effects and market developments
  • Political developments and required actions


The bioenergy-workshops „Torrefaction of biomass“ and „Aerosols from small-scale biomass combustion plants“ by the International Energy Agency constitute the scientific highlights of the conference. For the first time a separate, practice-oriented conference day on the topic „Short rotation wood and new agricultural raw materials“ is aiming particularly at farmers. Excursions, top technologies presented at the Industry Forum and a separate matchmaking event for companies (http://www.b2match.eu/biomass2011 ) are complementing the event.
