Top Sustainability and Biofuels Conferences in First Half of 2024

As 2024 takes off in full force, even more businesses are setting their attention and goals on how to transition their operations to renewables. With laws and rules like the EUDR and global biofuel mandates looming, now is the time to invest in decarbonization.

Several opportunities are available to learn and understand this market sector and how it is evolving. Below, we've put together a list of some of the most important biofuels and sustainability conferences taking place this year. Use this guide as a quick reference to get a sense of what to look out for in the first half of 2024 across the biofuels industry.

International Energy Week

February 27-29, 2024 | London, UK

(Event Website)

Formerly known as IP Week, this year's International Energy Week is titled In Search of the Energy Transition. The primary agenda looks to identify and workshop strategies to intensify the pace and adoption of decarbonization.

The Russia-Ukraine war created seismic shifts across the geopolitical energy systems. This has revealed multiple weak points in traditional energy markets. Despite the booming call to decarbonize, amplified by the climate crisis, the market has continued to resist the changes it needs to achieve carbon goals.

Bringing together energy experts, scientists, and industry veterans, IEW will emphasize its focus on identifying the barriers preventing the energy market from meaningful movement. Discussions, research and presentations will focus on several essential areas:

  • Policymaking and Regulation
  • Financial Challenges
  • Governance
  • Improving Energy Efficiency
  • Accommodating Shifting Energy Demands
  • Professional Development and Skill Identification

Members of the ResourceWise team will be here at this globally significant event. Check back on the ResourceWise LinkedIn page for more details about where to find us.

International Biomass Conference & Expo

March 4-6 | Richmond, VA

(Conference Website)

Panel preview from the International Biomass Conference & Expo, March 4-6 2024 in Richmond, Virginia.

The 17th iteration of this conference unites bioenergy-based producers with related industry professionals like feedstock producers, energy crop farmers, corporate executives and more.

The gathering serves as one of the world leaders in educational panels and networking opportunities to serve this rapidly growing industry sector. According to the conference website, the IBCE "...is where the future and existing producers of biobased power, fuels and thermal energy products go to network with waste generators and other industry suppliers and technology providers.”

The event provides opportunities for global firms to collaborate on innovations and breakthroughs in how the world utilizes biomass. As the world focuses more directly on this renewable resource, the event has become even more critical for the future.

ResourceWise's Trip Jobe will be presenting on the panel Reviewing Domestic and Global Pellet Markets and Public Attitudes About their Developments. You can read the full conference agenda here.
