The global demand for efficient and environmentally sustainable technologies is high. Germany has a lot of experience in the field of biomass as well as biogas and waste-to-energy technologies. In Myanmar, bioenergy, particularly electricity generation through biomass gasification and biodiesel production, enjoys a high level of acceptance. Many small plants that gasify agricultural residues are already installed at local level. German expertise could help to level up here. Subsequently, there are numerous opportunities for Myanmar-German partnerships in governmental and commercial projects.
The German Delegation of Industry and Commerce in Myanmar therefore invites to the 4th Renewable Energy Symposium. The symposium is taking place virtually on 29 September 2020. The event will showcase the expertise and the latest energy solutions from Germany and Myanmar and will focus in specific on Myanmar's industrial growth with biomass and waste-to-energy. This conference provides a forum for networking, specialist talks, discussing current developments and the policy environment for smart energy solutions.
We are honored to have His Excellency German Ambassador Thomas Neisinger to give the welcome remarks.
We welcome Myanmar experts from business, science, politics and administration to the audience.
The first edition of the Symposium was held in 2017 October and has more than a hundred participants from the Myanmar and German public and private energy sector.
The conference is part of the AHK business trip organized by the German business delegation in Myanmar in cooperation with eclareon GmbH, the consultant of the German Energy Solutions initiative.
