During the last years wind and solar energy in SE Europe advanced significantly as a result of extensive purposeful promotion, along with a number of state and local incentives and regulations promoting renewable energy.  But biomass energy potential has been underestimated and has not been developing at the same rate, although there are plenty of available resources in the Region.
Recent saturation with wind and solar applications and the rising oil prices make biomass economically attractive as bioenergy is a diverse sector with a substantial potential.
The forthcoming 9th edition of the South-East European Eco Forum and Exhibition will reveal sustainable solutions with a focus on bioenergy and will outline numerous investment opportunities in the Region.
The third day of the Forum, 31st May, will be entirely devoted to the potential for agricultural, landfill & wastewater biogas and on this day one side event will be organized by the US Environmental Protection Agency - Global Methane Initiative /GMI/ on Landfill Gas Utilization.   
Some of the SPEAKERS are: *Walter Somitsch, Biogas expert, Austria;  *Brian Guzzone, ERG, USA;
*Andy Whiteman, Resources & Waste Advisory (RWA) Group, UK;  *Thomas Frankiewicz, U.S.Environmental Protection Agency;  *Momchil Sidhimov, Bulgarian Ministry of Environment;  *Experience of Arjentina for Biodisel production (Speaker tbc)
