This event will provide an opportunity to learn more about bioenergy opportunities for UK researchers and businesses in sub Saharan Africa. There will be presentations from bioenergy researchers of their current work and ideas for implementation, which will be of interest to technology and equipment providers, project developers, NGO’s and charities and policy makers.

There will be opportunities for round table discussion of new ideas and projects and advice will be on hand from hub members familiar with the funding and policy landscape. A key aim of the event is to build new collaborations to develop UK-African bioenergy links.
