|Tapping on Local Woody & Agricultural Resources for Power & Export!|
Biomass offers a sustainable energy source that could be the answer to Africa's escalating electricity demand and cost.
The International Renewable Energy Agency (Irena) claims there is "immense potential" for hydropower, solar and biomass in Africa, and could supply 22% of Africa's total energy consumption by 2030. Global interest is currently brewing with significant portion of FDI flowing into African renewable energy development.
While solar PV has garnered much interest, the need for a greater mix of energy sources and diversity of independent power producers, could provide efficient power supply to major cities, industries and rural electrification at greater affordability and minimal environmental impact. And while Africa is well-endowed with woody and agricultural resources, adequate biomass resource management is necessary to have effective fuel utilization in the bioenergy value chain.
Bioenergy in Africa would increase as policy and funding catches up to motivate project development. From biomass co-firing, dedicated biomass-power, waste to energy, biogas and biofuels, Europe, US and Asia have strong cases and support where Africa can emulate.

Invader bush biomass have caught the attention of both Namibia Power (local utilization) and EU's Belgian Eco Energy who will be importing through to fuel the biomass-fired power plant in the city of Ghent. While the bioenergy sector is still in its nascent state in Africa, buyers from Europe and North Asia are eagerly exploring export opportunities for wood chip and palm kernel shells (PKS) from Africa.
Gathering all stakeholders from the regulatory, trading, project developing, technologies and financing, CMT’s 2nd Biomass Trade & BioEnergy Africa conference offers the platform to leap-off sustainable development of Africa biomass and bioenergy value chain.

Multiple Benefits to Attain Your Business Leads
How you will Benefit from being Connected at
Since 2008, CMT’s Biomass series evolved from and into inter-regional biomass trade and supply, biomass power projects, developments in biofuels, biomass use regulations and more. The series traveled across Europe, America and Asia – from Rotterdam to Brussels to Atlanta to Seoul to Jakarta and last year to Tokyo.
Pegged as the ‘Global Biomass Buyer-Supplier Meet’ it has connected over thousands of wood pellet, wood chip and agricultural biomass (e.g. Palm Oil, etc) producers & traders, power utilities, and technology providers.
