Energy Farmers presents at Bioenergy Australia’s annual conference.

Our bioenergy presentation at Bioenergy Australia’s annual conference held in Melbourne on the 25th-27th of November was on the work we have been doing in the bioenergy space. It was great to mix with other industry players and sobering to hear they are all facing the same constraints getting projects off the ground.

Biomass projects are complex needing a lot of different aspects to come together to ensure project success. Financing these projects is an issue, long development times mean that investors get fatigued and look for alternatives. To really ramp up the industry these issues need to be ironed out, policy that fast track project development would also help.

In the future supply chains will be crucial, feedstock supply, harvesting, handling and transport will need to be solid to provide the large amounts of biomass that these projects will need. We are working to build the capacity of farmers so they are in a position capitalise on this.
