Info Day Energy Crops for EnergyGoal: To demonstrate the economic efficiency of biomass energy plantations for energy production in Ukraine.

Target audience: agrarian companies, farmers, municipalities, business, state institutions.

Local communities are currently mostly dependent on fossil fuels, such as natural gas and coal, using these energy sources to generate heat. To stop this dependency while at the same time contributing to the development of the local economy can be energy such as biomass from plantations of specially grown energy crops. Low-yielding or abandoned land in regions at sustainable use can become a source of stable supply of biomass feedstock, for further use in local boiler-houses, supplying cheaper heat energy. Potential producers of such biomass can become local farmers, which have in stock most of the necessary equipment for growing energy plantations. Involving local farmers in the production of non-food biomass on low-yielding land will create a pool of producers of sustainable bioenergy raw materials for further convertion into energy or biofuels.

International project «FORBIO - Fostering sustainable feedstock production for advanced biofuels on underutilised land in Europe» is aimed at showing the viability of using land in the EU Member States for sustainable bioenergy feedstock production that does not affect the supply of food and feed, in addition to not interfering with land currently used for recreational and/or conservation purposes. Project activities and outputs set the basis for building up and strengthening local bioenergy value chains that are competitive and that meet the highest sustainability standards, thus contributing to the market uptake of sustainable bioenergy in the EU.

Today the largest international players in the field of renewable energy consider Ukraine as the most attractive European market among the developing economies.

Such conclusions were made based on the results of the 9th International Sustainable Energy Forum and Exhibition of Eastern Europe SEF-2017 Kyiv, which took place on October 9-11 in Kyiv.

Chairman of the Board of the Bioenergy Association of Ukraine Georgii Geletukha has participated in the Forum and Exhibition SEF-2017 Kyiv and was leading the bioenergy section. His presentation you can find here.

In particular, in the first half of 2017, the total capacity of renewable energy facilities increased in Ukraine by 183 MW and exceeded 1.46 GW. It is estimated that by the end of the year, this figure may exceed 1.52 GW.

The 9th International Sustainable Energy Forum and Exhibition of Eastern Europe SEF-2017 Kyiv was held on October 9-11 in Kyiv at “Parkovy” Congress and Exhibition center. 440 delegates and 58 exhibitors from 32 countries became participants of the industry event. The organizer of SEF-2017 KYIV is Innovative Business Centre (IB Center).

Нідерландсько-український форум On September 19, the 1 st day of the International conference "BIOMASS FOR ENERGY 2017" hosted the Dutch-Ukrainian Forum "Biofuels Market in Ukraine: a Step to Energy Independence". The forum brought together about 70 participants, including representatives of agrarian companies, equipment and raw material producers, profile associations and academics. The Forum provided opportunities for bioenergy cooperation between Dutch and Ukrainian companies from the PIB Biobased Energy Ukraine consortium.

The Dutch consortium, Biobased Energy Ukraine (www.biobased-ukraine.nl) , is a public-private partnership of the Dutch renewable energy sector supported by the Government of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. The consortium participants are leading Dutch companies specializing in various aspects of the value added biobased production chain and renowned knowledge institutions. The Government of the Netherlands supports the partnership activities in Ukraine. The partnership invests, designs, supplies and advises for biobased energy projects in Ukraine (2015-2018).
