Wood Energy Securing Irelandís Energy Future
Bioenergy 2011 will
take place at Johnstown Castle, Wexford on Thursday 16 June 2011.
Presented by the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland,
Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (DAFF) and Teagasc,
this conference is now firmly established as the national showcase
event for wood energy in Ireland.
Once again, the event is dedicated to the entire wood
fuel chain and combines professional conference with practical demonstration.
The event will -
- focus on policy and market drivers;
- highlight the potential in growing, harvesting and using wood
- reflect the technical and economic potential of wood energy
- identify new sources of wood energy and the use and deployment
of solid biomass, in particular wood energy - and
- raise awareness across all sectors - from the landowner to the
The introduction of policy, targets and financial incentives has
been crucial in the stimulation, development, demonstration and
deployment of wood heating technologies - so much so, that, today,
many high energy users in the industrial, commercial, public and
community sectors are experiencing the many benefits of biomass
As the market continues to develop, we are seeing a range of installations
and applications ranging from pellet stoves to heat a single room,
to automatic wood-fuelled boilers heating homes, public and commercial
buildings such as hospitals, local authority buildings, schools,
hotels and leisure centres.
Other and new potential industrial and commercial markets in Ireland
include the food & drink, pharmaceutical and wood processing
sectors, as well as the housing and commercial building sector.
In recent years, the wood heating market in Ireland has witnessed
substantial growth and, amidst concerns over escalating fuel prices,
security of supply, availability and vulnerability of finite fuel
resources, we see an expanded range of 21st century wood fuels -
pellets, chips, briquettes and log wood are all particularly well
adapted to domestic, commercial and industrial needs as Ireland
warms to wood energy.
