Draft Bioenergy Vision for Tasmania - Consultation Paper

A consultation paper has been developed by Renewables, Climate and Future Industries Tasmania (ReCFIT) to progress the development of a Bioenergy Vision for Tasmania. The release of the consultation paper delivers on a commitment in the Tasmanian Renewable Energy Action Plan (TREAP) to develop the Bioenergy Vision in consultation with industry and stakeholders.

Bioenergy is currently the largest source of renewable energy in Australia and the world. The draft Bioenergy Vision proposes that bioenergy be embedded as a valuable resource to aid energy production, waste management and resource recovery, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and supporting regional employment and economic development.

The draft Bioenergy Vision has been developed in consultation with an extensive range of stakeholders that represented: agriculture, aquaculture, waste management and resource recovery, forestry and timber processing, power generation, industrial energy users, transport, peak industry bodies, construction, and government.

The public release of this consultation paper now provides an opportunity for all Tasmanians to shape the final Bioenergy Vision and the role of Government and industry in achieving the vision.

We encourage submissions on all or any part of our scope.
