World Bioenergy Association announces Spring webinar series

At the recently concluded COP28 climate conference in Dubai, UAE, major announcements were made that will have far-reaching implications for the global energy system. Some of the key agreements include tripling renewable energy capacity globally, doubling energy efficiency improvements, phasing down unabated coal, accelerating efforts towards net zero, as well as (crucially) transitioning away from fossil fuels in energy systems.

As the world moves towards rapidly scaling up renewables and transitioning away from fossil fuels, bioenergy will play a crucial role. According to various net zero pathways, the sector is expected to represent almost 20% of the total energy supply by 2050 which presents a great opportunity for countries around the world. At the same time, the scale and pace of transformation will have challenges.

To shed light on important challenges and opportunities within this field, the World Bioenergy Association (WBA), partnering with our official magazine Bioenergy International, is pleased to announce the upcoming Spring 2024 webinar series.

This three-part series highlights the crucial role of bioenergy in global energy transformation. The 1st webinar will showcase bioenergy as a solution for providing modern and renewable heat for industries. The future of liquid biofuels in decarbonizing different industries such as transport and off-grid sectors will be the major focus of the 2nd webinar. During the 3rd webinar, we will explore the significance of carbon removal technologies, with a specific emphasis on the role of bioenergy in this field.

All the webinars are free to attend, but prior registration is mandatory.
