With more than 450 participants each year, it is the largest annual pellet event worldwide.

This meeting place for the global pellet community offers a great opportunity to get informed about current trends in the pellet and bioenergy world. In just 2.5 days, the event offers delegates:
  • a series of sessions delivering the latest news about markets, technologies and policies
  • a full-day of technical site visits on fuels, equipment and exemplary installations
  • a major tradeshow on renewable energy with over 100 pellet-related exhibitors

Meet. Learn. See. Enjoy!

The event is part of the annual "World Sustainable Energy Days" conference, organised by the OÖ Energiesparverband, the energy agency of Upper Austria. Upper Austria is an ideal location for such a conference: more than 25 % of all biomass boilers sold in the EU are manufactured by Upper Austrian companies and pellet heating systems have become a standard solution in the region.
