Bundesverband Bioenergie BBE
The Bundesverband Bioenergie eV (BBE) is the umbrella organization for bioenergy. It was founded in 1998 to give effective representation in politics and society for the diversity of bioenergy with all its manifestations and technological paths in the electricity, heating and transport sectors. The strengths of the BBE include the integration of specialized industry associations and companies into a strong network. Experts and decision-makers meet at the BBE to analyze political and economic framework conditions and to represent a strong position for the industry. The BBE thus creates a holistic presentation of bioenergy and promotes the exchange between bioenergy, politics and society.
