Karin Haara

Diretora Executiva, Associação Mundial de Bioenergia

Since 1983 I have been working in the field of  biomass and bioenergy in different positions and since 1988 as project manager for Swedish Bioenergy Association. Bioenergy is a broad area and through my work and education as a chemical engineer I have been able to get a better understanding of how the different bioenergy systems works in reality and how to promote development.

Since 2010 I am working as the Executive Director for the World Bioenergy Association. While building up a new global organisation is a major challenge I believe that bioenergy is going to be one of the most important player globally in the renewable energy field.
