What is it all about?

The new "Fit for 55" package aims to put the EU on track towards climate neutrality. Energy accounts for 75 % of GHG emissions. As a CO2-neutral fuel, sustainable bioenergy is a key pillar for decarbonisation. 

In 2022, the European Pellet Conference – the largest annual pellet event worldwide – shows how firing up pellet markets can boost the energy transition and how to position pellets as an important climate solution. Learn and discuss about how businesses and citizens can profit from this, how we can increase acceptance, trigger investments, and get things moving – full speed!
