The first EBA conference was organized in Bratislava in 2012. Participants from all over Europe listened to various speakers and exchanged views on the five major topics of the conference: political framework, technology review, business environment, financing biogas projects and biogas as an important pillar of the European energy future.
A survey showed that expectations of 89% of the participants were fulfilled. The conference enabled exchange of views between the biogas industry and policy makers from the European Commission, the German parliament and Slovak ministries. Based on the good experience and feedback on this first conference EBA decided to host a biogas conference every two years.
Statistics and survey outcomes are available in the conference report.
