BioEnergy Resources

The Regional Bioenergy Project came out of a perceived need to establish a demonstration project for bioenergy. Project aims included installing a bioenergy system at the Beaufort Hospital, and investment plan for the Wimmera, case studies and a forum to recommend future bioenergy related activity.
