What are the possibilities and trade-offs of bio-energy?
24 May, Lund: Spark! Lecture
Being the major form of renewable energy worldwide, bio-energy has the potential to generate more energy than wind, solar and hydro-power combined. In the coming decades a huge increase in demand of biomass for energy purposes is expected. Where will this biomass come from and what are the impacts of this increased usage? Together with Lund University, EIT Climate-KIC invites you to discuss these issues together with a knowledgeable high profile panel consisting of the former Swedish Environmental Minister and representatives from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), World Bioenergy Organisation and Sweden's leading universities on this topic.
We at EIT Climate-KIC are looking forward to seeing you at the Nordic Clean Energy Week 2018!
