Bioenergy Europe is a well-established organisation in Brussels.

To be in our membership directory is to be part of an international bioenergy community that brings global visibility to your company, its products and its services.

The development of Bioenergy Europe has followed the growth and evolution of the bioenergy sector along the last 28 years, representing the whole value chain and across all bioenergy technologies.

  • Emmanuel Kakaras, Director of CERTH - Centre for Research & Technology Hellas

    "We consider Bioenergy Europe as the leading EU-wide stakeholder for all biomass and bioenergy issues. Thanks to the membership, we can reach new audiences for our research results, identify new opportunities for international and European collaborations and establish vital links with policy makers."

  • Jaap Kiel, Program Development Manager at ECN

    "As a public entity, we are very happy with Bioenergy Europe and the role its plays in the advocacy landscape for bioenergy. 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. Lastly, Bioenery Europe's conferences provide very good opportunities to network and meet the leading bioenergy business players in EU."

  • Domenico Brugnoni, President of AIEL - Associatione Italiana Energie Agroforestali

    "AIEL is deeply convinced of the importance of Bioenergy Europe's work in Brussels. A common voice for the bioenergy sector with the aim to develop a sustainable bioenergy market based on fair business conditions is a key element for all national associations."
