Biomass is the biggest source of renewable energy in both the Eu and the US, even bigger than solar or wind

This forum will explore the opportunities presented by:

  • Turning food waste into power
  • Heating from local sawmill residues
  • Biomass run greenhouses
  • Biochar for better soil health
  • Designing a bioenergy system
  • Closed loop systems
  • The economics of bioenergy
  • What is happening in the rest of the world with bioenergy.

The forum will be held on 18 June and a one-day field tour of businesses using bioenergy will be held on 19 June.
