Biomass 2012: Confronting Challenges, Creating Opportunities

Sustaining a Commitment to Bioenergy

On July 10–11, 2012, the U.S. Department of Energy’s Biomass Program will host its fifth annual conference, Biomass 2012: Confronting Challenges, Creating Opportunities – Sustaining a Commitment to Bioenergy, at the Washington, D.C. Convention Center.  This year’s conference will examine the dynamic playing field of bioenergy in 2012, as exciting new technologies move forward within a shifting policy, tax, and economic landscape.

Biomass 2012 will bring together hundreds of diverse stakeholders with key decision-makers in the public and private sectors, as well as a range of interdisciplinary experts, to discuss the latest advances in bioenergy technology, policy news, and financing strategies.  Situated just blocks away from Capitol Hill, the White House, federal agencies, and the headquarters of numerous national and international organizations, the conference will provide an excellent forum for an open dialogue about overcoming common challenges and sustaining our national commitment to building the advanced bioenergy economy. 

Last year’s event was attended by over 600 people and featured keynote speeches from members of the Cabinet, Congress, CEO-level company executives, acclaimed scientists, and other industry leaders.
