In the coming decade, the development of the renewable energy sector will be both impetuous and critical. And it will have to come to terms with the difficult sourcing of the necessary raw materials, fluctuating fossil fuel prices, the water crisis, and more. Therefore, new strategies to harvest renewable energy from the territories must be added to the large photovoltaic and wind power programmes, leveraging specific material flows that can become important carriers for this purpose. Many sectors are already prepared to be involved in this new scenario: from agro-food to sludge or organic fraction management, from the wood and furniture sector to pruning waste, with innovative high-performance solutions, consistent with their respective supply chains. And so, subjects that are already today players in the circular economy can become co-leaders of the energy transition, according to an integrated strategy that promotes new uses of biomaterials and renewable matter. This is a unique challenge, as the energy sector has so far not embraced the issue of material circularity, whilst renewable fuel strategies are only in their infancy.
The convention - through the contributions of experts, industrial operators, and key players in transition policies - aims to look at "who can do what" and start a discussion on how current and significant the contribution of materials can be in accelerating and consolidating the energy transition.
