New collaboration to drive forward Australian biofuels industry

The Clean Energy Council and Bioenergy Australia have announced that a memorandum of understanding between the two organisations has been signed.
The aim of the collaboration is to drive an increased level of understanding, uptake and engagement in renewable energy generation in Australia.
“Bioenergy can operate across the entire energy system and supports domestic fuel security, emission reduction and waste minimisation. Bioenergy is also a key opportunity for transitioning regional Australia and providing billions of dollars in investment and hundreds of thousands of jobs,” said Clean Energy Council chief executive Kane Thornton.
“Bioenergy can operate to support other renewable energy types, and we look forward to driving a collaborative renewable energy sector moving forward.”
Bioenergy Australia CEO Shahana McKenzie added: “The 2019 announcement by Minister for Energy and Emissions Reduction Angus Taylor for the development of the National Bioenergy Roadmap presents a significant opportunity for the integration of bioenergy and bio products within the renewable energy agenda.
“The Clean Energy Council and Bioenergy Australia, alongside all their members, look forward to a productive working relationship.”
