4 key reasons to become an AEBIOM member
Finnish Bioenergy Association,
AEBIOM has a key advocacy role for our association with its strong presence and contacts in Brussels. AEBIOM also provides a great platform to exchange information and ideas with other associations and key market players in the EU. We have a common goal to promote the use of sustainable bioenergy and thereby to move away from fossil-fuel based economy in Europe.
Romanian Association of Biomass and Biogas,
AEBIOM’s work is critical for our sector. Without lobbying and advocacy in Brussels, no National Association can assess the complexity of problems and the necessity of decision making based on accurate data. AEBIOM’s team of experts has proved its efficiency, has brought up results and nowadays it represents the point of reference for our sector, and not only.
ECN (Energy Research Centre of the Netherlands),
As a public entity, we are very happy with AEBIOM and the role its plays in the advocacy landscape for bioenergy. A coherent articulation of the importance of bio-energy in the transition towards a more renewable energy system is essential, and we see AEBIOM generally do a good job at this. As an applied energy research institute, having access to up to date knowledge – on all aspects of bioenergy- is key to retaining a leading position and the AEBIOM portal and organization provides us with insights into latest policy bioenergy-related developments at EU level. Furthermore, AEBIOM’s role within the IBTC has been very constructive in the market development of torrefied pellets within Europe. Lastly, AEBIOM’s conferences provide very good opportunities to network and meet the leading bioenergy business players in EU.
EIFER (The European Institute for Energy Research),
Since several years, EIFER is a member of AEBIOM and is interested in a cross-border exchange of knowledge and experience in the field of bioenergy. The participation in webinars and working groups of AEBIOM allows EIFER to get some insights into specific topics (such as sustainability of biomass) and to be up to date regarding the latest developments of the bioenergy market and new European legislation. As an international research institute, EIFER is expanding its research network and therefore AEBIOM is a great support, as they are offering different workshops about ongoing public funded projects. The network is a great opportunity to be connected with other key players in the bioenergy sector and to get in touch with potential research partners.
University of Applied Sciences and Art Western Switzerland, HEIG-VD,
For us, it is very important to be a member of AEBIOM, as well as of their IBTC network. AEBIOM plays a key role on the European scene to foster bioenergy innovations and markets. With AEBIOM, we benefit from the latest up-to-date information on many issues and it helps us formulating and revising our RTD and innovation strategy. The member area provides us with a lot of data, conference papers, policies etc. that are very valuable to us. We also feel part of a big family with shared interests along the complete project and product life cycles and covering all aspects of bioenergy.
AEBIOM is a hugely important interface for participants in the biomass energy sector, where collectively we can have greater impact in promoting the positive nature of bio-energy at a time when it is continuing to face critique of its credentials. We fully believe the biomass is a critical part of the energy mix for Europe and internationally if we are to avoid the catastrophic effects of climate change and air pollution for future generations.
