The World Bioenergy Award
In collaboration between World Bioenergy 2014 and the World Bioenergy Association
The World Bioenergy Award is an award for an individual who has made a difference: a business leader, politician or researcher who in a crucial way has furthered the development of the bioenergy sector. The award is a sign that the achievements of this person are of outstanding importance to the field of bioenergy utilisation.
The award, comprising a statuette and diploma, will be presented on 3 June at the opening session of the World Bioenergy conference and exhibition at Elmia in Jönköping, Sweden. After being honoured, the winner will be expected to give a short speech about her/his achievements in the bioenergy field to the attending media.

Why the World Bioenergy Award?
Many good deeds are being done in the field of bioenergy around the world. Many of them deserve to be appreciated and showcased as good examples. The World Bioenergy Award is intended to serve as an inspiration to professionals working with bioenergy. Showcasing an innovation or other good example should help to encourage continued progress.
The World Bioenergy conference and exhibition brings together the elite of the global bioenergy industry every second year. Both the event and the World Bioenergy Association work on a global basis and we want to honour individuals who are helping to further the bioenergy cause.
