Bioenergy Forum 18/19 June

The Victorian Bioenergy Network, in partnership with Agribusiness Gippsland Inc. is organising a two day bioenergy event on the 18th and 19th June in Gippsland. This event will focus on activities and opportunities in eastern Victoria for bioenergy projects and related developments. This is of particular interest to local government authorities, regional businesses, community organisations and anyone interested in looking to reduce heating, cooling and power costs, utilise waste streams or explore options for developing renewable energy alternatives to mains electricity, LPG and briquettes.

Day 1 will be held in the Latrobe Valley and whilst the program is still being developed, we do have a number of speakers confirmed. They will be covering topics including the business case for bioenergy, grants and financing options, bioenergy technologies and their application in various biofuel production systems, and practical experiences and lessons learnt from developing recent bioenergy projects in eastern Victoria. Day 2 will be a field trip to visit a number of bioenergy installations in the Latrobe and Wellington Shires. A program and event booking details will be forthcoming in a couple of weeks, once most of the speakers and the field trip itinerary have been confirmed.  Liz Hamilton Victorian Bioenergy Network
