Successful BIOENERGY mission to Lithuania from China

WBA is pleased to report the successful BIOENERGY mission from China to Lithuania – organized in cooperation with our branch office in Changchun, China. The mission included energy professionals and bioenergy developers from Jilin Province, China. The one-day intensive mission included meetings with important stakeholders along with site visits to cutting edge bioenergy installations in Lithuania.

The great success story of Lithuania, where bioenergy has a share of 70% in district heating sector was achieved in relatively short period, is interesting to many countries and decision makers. China is one of the world’s largest consumer of energy. Recent policies show a dramatic shift towards the development of renewable energy technologies and bioenergy will play a crucial role in the transformation.

The discussions during the BIOENERGY mission showed a clear preference that crops and residues from agricultural sector will play a major role when developing bioenergy in China. The success of research and practical implementation of bioenergy in this region is very important and crucially needed for all the rest of the World.

WBA is advancing the development of bioenergy by strong cooperation with Chinese stakeholders.
