International Training Seminar Biomass Heating 2016 – Market development and technologies

12 – 15 September 2016, Linz/Austria312321

The market transformation towards modern, high-efficiency biomass heating presents enormous opportunities for local economic development, the reduction of energy costs and climate and environment protection. The International Training Seminar focuses on small- to mid-scale projects fuelled by wood pellets and wood chips covering solutions for homes, smaller commercial/ public buildings and district heating grids (up to a few hundred kilowatt). The seminar offers interactive learning in an international group, educational site-visits and presentations by experts in biomass technologies, market development and environment.

The International Training Seminar is organised by the Energy Academy of the OÖ Energiesparverband, the energy agency of the region of Upper Austria. Upper Austria is a success story in high-efficiency biomass heating: more than 30 % of the heat demand is covered by clean, automatic biomass heating. Green heating has created more than 500 new jobs in Upper Austria in recent years. The OÖ Energiesparverband is also the organiser of the European Pellet Conference, the world’s largest annual event on wood pellets.
