The most important world event dedicated to heating appliances and energy generation through biomass is scheduled from 28 February to 2 March. More than 50 thousand trade visitors are expected, 12 thousand of them from abroad.

Biomass used in residential heating is already the main renewable energy source used by more than a quarter of Italian households. Energy produced from wood and its derivatives will still be a mainstay of renewables to help achieve the 2030 decarbonisation targets. Modern wood, pellet and wood chip technologies now achieve emission factors of just a few tens of grams per unit of thermal energy produced, compared to over 500 grams emitted by a traditional stove. This guarantees a reduction of climate-altering emissions into the atmosphere (CO2eq) of over 90%.

The wood-energy supply chain as a whole counts more than 14 thousand companies in Italy, with a turnover of more than 4 billion euro and over 72 thousand employees. Italian technology companies are the Made in Italy leader and European market leader, representing over 70% of the market. A supply chain that looks to the future with confidence and that will meet at Progetto Fuoco, the most important world event dedicated to heating appliances and energy production through biomass, scheduled at the Verona Exhibition Centre from 28 February to 2 March 2024. From stoves to fireplaces via boilers, barbecues and wood and pellet stoves: 550 exhibiting companies will be present at the event, including 200 from 35 foreign countries, presenting all the latest market innovations on an exhibition area of 130 thousand square metres distributed over 7 pavilions and an outdoor area.

More than 50 thousand trade visitors are expected in Verona, 12 thousand of them from abroad, who will be able to get a close-up look at at least 3.500 products on display, most of which will be functional thanks to a special fume extraction system. But the event will also be an opportunity for discussion with decision-makers on the latest regulatory innovations in the field of energy efficiency and sustainable forest management, as well as offering a rich programme of conferences, workshops, round tables and professional refresher courses.
