Bioenergy 2017 – IrBEA National Bioenergy Conference
2017 will be a pivotal year for Ireland’s energy policy; the industry expects clarity by then for the roll-out of a Renewable Heat Incentive. We need to move towards clean technologies. Currently, in Ireland, we have a renewable market share of 8.7%-, with Bioenergy contributing 2% of this. It’s imperative that the Irish Government develops an energy policy that allows for greater growth in the Bioenergy sector. This will be under discussion at the conference. IRBEA will again have a strong line up...
