European Parliament (Room 6Q1)

Partners for Euro-African Green Energy (PANGEA) and Global Bioenergy Partnership (GBEP) have the pleasure of inviting you to a forum on how to ensure access to sustainable bioenergy globally.

One of the goals of the EU Renewable Energy Directive is to achieve 10% renewable energy use in transport by 2020 and biofuels represents a big portion of that goal. During this spring, the EP will be discussing the new EC proposal to cap first generation biofuels at 5% in the Renewable Energy Directive.

For the 2013 edition of the EUSEW, PANGEA and GBEP are offering a forum to share information and lessons learned related to benefits and challenges of bioenergy in developing and emerging countries. GBEP will present its tools to facilitate the sustainable development of bioenergy and several case studies from several areas of the world - Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean - both for small-scale and large-scale projects.

The forum is hosted by MEP Maria Da Graça CARVALHO (EPP, Portugal).

The panel will include:
•    Meghan Sapp, PANGEA Secretary General
•    Maria Michela Morese, GBEP
•    Dr. Gerard Ostheimer, USDA-Foreign Agricultural Service  

And many other speakers presenting case studies in projects in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean. More details on the agenda will follow soon.
Please note that this invitation is personal. As our room's capacity is limited, only confirmed registered participants will be accepted.
To register, please send an email by 15 June to annalisa@pangealink.org providing full name, organization, position, birth date, nationality and passport number.
