Discover Gippsland’s renewable fuel potential at an exciting bioenergy forum on June 18-19.
Hear how Gippslanders are generating power from food-waste; heating greenhouses with bioenergy, using biochar to boost soil health and exploring fuel from forest residues.
Meet the small Victorian town that is pioneering biomass for heating. Interstate speakers will explain how other regional communities can develop bioenergy projects.
