REA Bioenergy Conference 2006
Submitted: 6 September 2006
Bioenergy 2006 was held on 6 & 7 September in Weston-Super-Mare, at the Winter Gardens.
The REA is very pleased with the excellent attendance of this year's two day event, with over 360 attendees- around double the number of delegates of last year! The wide range of speakers and highly informative and debate provoking presentations received positive feedback from many delegates.

Highlights included a positive introduction to the potential for bioenergy, from Climate Change and Environment Minister Ian Pearson MP, authorative and informed chairmanship from Lord Whitty of Camberwell and a rousing afternoon session on day one with Sir Ben Gill's whirlwind appearance as chairman and commentator. At least one delegate requested that he appear at all future REA conferences...

Richard Crowhurst of Enagri magazine summed up with "if the first day's programme was anything to go by, this really has been one of the benchmark events for the renewables and energy agriculture sectors"

Day two provided three parallel conferences on biomass heat, renewable transport fuels, and co-firing. These included presentations from a huge range of industry players, including project developers, equipment manufacturers, fuel and feedstock producers and suppliers, power generators, government and industry representatives, and a range of service providers to the bioenergy industry.

Amongst other recurring themes were that of the large amount of knowlege that can read-across from agriculture into co-firing, in particular on health and safety and material handling techniques. The Industry Regulation Policy Advisor of the Enviroment Agency revealed that the EA was simplifying or removing the requirements currently applying to the trialling of new WID-exempt biofuels at coal fired power stations.
