As part of the Swedish American Green Alliance (SAGA) initiative, an American delegation will visit World Bioenergy. The delegation aims to provide U.S. decision makers with information to facilitate implementation of advanced bioenergy solutions, and is arranged the Swedish Trade Council and the Swedish Energy Agency.
Invited to the delegation are decision makers from American cities and other local authorities, as well as key U.S. companies and organizations. By showcasing Sweden's bioenergy infrastructure, one of the most advanced in the world, the arranging organizations want to inform and inspire similar developments and technologies in the U.S. Today, 32 percent of Sweden's total energy supply is derived from biofuels, making it the most utilized fuel in the country. In the U.S. the dominance by fossil fuels is still very strong.
In order to provide a program adapted to local needs and in accordance with Swedish expertise in the area, the program is developed through co-operation with the Swedish Bioenergy Agency and the BioBusiness Alliance of Minnesota. The delegation is part of a larger initiative where Swedish and Minnesota stakeholders are working together to install pilot projects in two different parts of the state.
