Share your thoughts at free bioenergy workshops

You are invited to participate in interactive workshops to help assess community support for prospective bioenergy projects in the Northern Rivers.

Bioenergy is a form of energy produced from biomass, i.e. materials derived from plants, animals and their by-products. Examples include sugar cane residue, livestock waste, municipal green waste, forestry residues, and plants/weeds grown for energy.

During the workshop, you will learn more about bioenergy and its prospects in the Northern Rivers. You will take part in discussions around the potential benefits, concerns, and challenges of various bioenergy technologies and energy sources. You will also have the opportunity to rate your level of support for prospective industries.
