A series of bioenergy industry forums have been held in South Australian regions.

To date three forums and a seminar have been held in identified ‘hot spots’; in Mount Gambier in May 2016, in Loxton in June 2017 and in Balaklava in September 2018.

In December 2018 a Bioenergy seminar was held in Mount Gambier, following up on the previous forum and with a focus on the concept of a Bio-Hub for the region.

All events were a great success and demonstrated significant enthusiasm for establishing a Bioenergy Industry in South Australia. The events also provided a useful networking opportunity for businesses, community and industry.

The agendas and presentations are available to download below.
