On occasion of WBA Bioenergy Mission to Japan 2017, we are co - organizing 2 international conferences in Tokyo and Nagano along with our partners in Japan - Renewable Energy Institute (REI). International experts in the bioenergy sector will highlight the development of bioenergy globally. The Nagano symposium will be held as part of the International Wood Fair 2017.
The role of bioenergy is being redefined as a necessary balancing power source for solar and wind power generation, which are showing rapid growth throughout the globe. In the symposium, latest trends in bioenergy policies and technologies will be introduced by experts from Sweden and the world. We hope this will provide new insights for compiling integrated bioenergy policies and visions in Japan.
