An Africa Business Community
Following the success of the inaugural Biofuels Markets East Africa conference and exhibition and the inaugural African Jatropha Roundtable that took place in Dar es Salaam in September 2008, this congress will expand on these events as well as incorporating our southern Africa based Biofuels Markets Africa conference (4th annual). These developments will make this THE event for all your bioenergy knowledge and networking needs in eastern and southern Africa.
These events will bring together key players from the region – with particular focus on Mozambique, Tanzania, Uganda, Kenya, Zambia, Malawi & Madagascar – with global industry experts. This event forms part of the Bioenergy Markets Global Series which is now in its 5th year and has been attended by over 7000 high calibre delegates to date.
African observers see new potential for the continent in the form of a bioenergy boom as large areas of the continent are proving fertile ground for those seeking an alternative to fossil fuels. Africa has the potential to become a major exporter of biofuels and this has opened up a lot of investment interest with Mozambique receiving a lot of the recent attention. In turn this offers many opportunities for local economic development.
Sustainable bioenergy remains a key part of the global energy solution and East & Southern Africa represents a nascent marketplace. Attendees will learn more about this growing market – meeting the key players and regional representatives, at a time when the region is identifying expanding opportunities for the production of feedstocks and biofuels for use both in Africa and for export. The growing demand for biofuels has sparked a green revolution in Africa and a frenzy of biofuel crop planting and investment.
