We would like to invite you to join us for the

2nd German American Bioenergy Conference

 

Biomass is the most important renewable energy source in the United States. Its installed capacity of over 14,000 MW makes the US the largest producer of electricity from biomass worldwide. Eight percent of US electricity production is currently generated from renewable energy, 53 percent of that coming from biomass. 

German bioenergy companies provide advanced technologies and decades of experience in the areas of solid biomass, biogas and biofuels while supporting the German government in its ambitious 20-20-20 goal: a 20 percent increase in both energy efficiency and renewable energies by 2020.

Bioenergy is the most useable renewable energy source in Germany. In 2010, around 70% of total renewable energy generated in the country came from bioenergy sources. In addition, biofuels - and, more particularly, second generation biofuels - are becoming more and more important.

German companies are setting benchmarks in the bioenergy market, by working closely with industry partners to develop technologies and bringing them to market quickly. Research focuses on cutting edge gasification technologies, highly efficient CHP applications and pellet plant equipment as well as energy crop sciences.

The goal of the 2nd German American Bioenergy Conference is to identify present and future opportunities and challenges of the bioenergy market in the US and to promote a transatlantic exchange of knowledge, technology and experiences. Our key-note speakers will include decision makers representing German and American companies as well as representatives from leading research institutions, government agencies and industry associations. Several German bioenergy companies will be in attendance to establish business contacts in the southern as well as the northern United States, by traveling to Georgia and Maine, to share their experiences of the European bioenergy market. 

  The Maine International Trade Center, a public-private partnership promoting Trade and Investment in the State of Maine is the supporting local partner assisting with business connections for the visiting delegation in Maine.
