The reduction of greenhouse gas emissions is a key task of the 21st century in order to keep the global temperature rise at an acceptable level. Especially the power sector has to undergo a fundamental transformation towards a fully renewable energy supply in the years to come.

With a development towards a 100% renewable energy supply, biomass has to take on a new role. In the future, biomass needs to support a system driven by the intermittent electricity production from wind turbines and photovoltaic plants. Biomass can act both as a backup and as storage capacity for such a system. In order to get there, technical, economic and ecologic issues need to be addressed.

The conference Sustainable Biomass in the Context of 100% Renewable Energy Supply sets the course for the upcoming challenges in the biogas sector. It is the first in a row of annual conferences on 100% Renewable Energy Systems and 100% Climate Protection hosted by the Universities in Flensburg and Sønderborg, Project Zero Sønderborg and Klimapakt Flensburg. This conference is co-hosted by the University of Aalborg.

The converence will be a venue for inspiring insights and lively discussions for experts from industry, politics, associations, and research and development institutions.
