MESSAGE FROM THE ORGANISING COMMITTEE

Recognizing the important role to be played by the biofuels sector in the economy and environment of the country and the region of Europe in general, S.BI.B.E. (Association of Biofuels and Biomass Greece) organizes its inaugural Conference under the auspices of the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change in 21st March 2013 in Athens Hilton marking the start of a cycle of conferences titled "SBIBE Conferences». Our aspiration is that these conferences become the focal point of meeting and exchange of all relevant biofuels partners-institutional, economic, production, technology and society and will be organized by the association on an annual basis. This year's conference title is:

"Biofuels: Looking ahead to 2020"

and will include recommendations and placements of distinguished speakers from Greece and abroad, political posturing and roundtables (panel discussions) among market players.

The Renewable Energy Sources play an important role in the evolving energy sector of the country. Biomass and biofuels are strong market players with high growth potential. Investments of € 9 billion for biofuels is expected to take place by 2020 in the European Union, while creating 200,000 new jobs in order to achieve this ambitious goal, 14% of the energy mix consisting of the cost competitive biofuels.

 

As part of a new energy policy, the renewable energy sector is characterized by the ability to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and pollution, exploit local and decentralized energy sources and encourage rural development. New and renewable energy sources including biofuels and biomass energy create economic activity, value added and employment in Europe and improve environmental quality and living standards.
