Biopower Generation Congress and Exhibition
30-31 October 2012
San Francisco, USA
Biopower Generation arrives in San Francisco as the 10th edition of the International Biopower Generation series.
State Renewable Portfolio Standards remain a key driver for the future of the sector. However negotiating a power purchase agreement is perhaps the most challenging and important milestone of the project. True to our track record, Biopower Generation will connect you with pro-active utilities to develop relationships crucial to the success of your next project.

With a streamlined focus on overcoming the challenges of new project development and improving the cost effectiveness of existing facilities, the conference will provide two days of case studies, interactive discussions and intensive networking, bringing together biomass producers and suppliers, project developers and constructors, biotechnology and power plant technology, with investors and utilities for 2 days of intensive, focused discussion.
