Minister Headlines REA Bioenergy Conference 6th & 7th October

REA’s annual bioenergy conference runs from 6th to 7th October at Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire.

The conference covers the biodiesel, biogas, biomass and energy-from-waste sectors across transport, heat and power. The conference runs alongside a major exhibition of bioenergy technologies, providing photo opportunities.

This year there will be strong interest in the Renewable Heat Incentive with the industry anxiously awaiting the outcome of the CSR on 20th October.  REA is delighted that Minister of State for the Department of Energy and Climate Change, Greg Barker, will be opening the conference and taking questions.  There will be a photo opportunity with the Minister and Volkswagen's new biogas car, the BioBug, in the exhibition centre.

The conference will address;

- new bioenergy technologies and those eligible under the Renewable Heat Incentive
- using bioenergy to heat buildings
- biomass sustainability and land management
- local government opportunities to turn waste to energy
- lessons from Austria, a leading country in this area.

Speakers include Doug Parr, Chief Scientist & Policy Director, Greenpeace, Adrian Gault, Chief Economist, The Committee on Climate Change, Peter Vadasz, the Mayor of Güssing in Austria, Alan Simpson, former MP and Renewable Energy Advisor to Friends of the Earth and a wide range of industry experts.
