At this year’s conference, the focus will be on the need to accelerate the uptake of bioenergy recognition in both policy and technology deployment in Ireland.

We need all renewable technologies and renewable fuels to be deployed as part of a broad renewable energy policy in Ireland. The conference title ‘Bioenergy’s essential role in emissions reduction and the energy transition’ is very appropriate in the current environment of a climate crisis and worries about energy security. IrBEA members have the technologies and fuelling solutions that will address all of those concerns, said Seán Finan, CEO of the Irish Bioenergy Association (IrBEA).

Bord na Móna and Gas Networks Ireland (GNI) are the co-sponsors of the 22nd National Bioenergy Conference. Bord na Móna has plans to deploy a wide range of renewable energy generation.

Specifically in bioenergy, this includes 100 percent biomass use at Edenderry Power Ltd and the development of biomethane production capacity.

GNI is actively engaged in encouraging the development of an indigenous biomethane industry here.

We are very pleased that both Bord na Móna and Gas Networks Ireland have agreed to co-sponsor the conference. Both companies are keenly focused on developing and delivering clean, renewable energy, along with carbon storage and resource recovery solutions. All those involved in this year’s conference are active in the promotion and deployment of solid, liquid, or gaseous bioenergy. We look forward to welcoming a broad range of delegates to Dún Laoghaire for intensive engagement on many aspects associated with our industry including its potential and opportunity as well as hearing from experts in the emerging carbon removals sector, ended Seán Finan.
