Biomass Energy Presentations

Thursday, October 06, 2011:

Biomass - a new way  to reduce power costs.  The production of renewable energy from biomass is growing in popularity world-wide. There are now opportunities in Tasmania for the generation of biomass energy from wood residues and municipal waste, with funding assistance from Regional Development Australia. The development of biomass energy plants also has the potential to reduce power costs and create regional employment.

Andrew Lang from the World Bio-energy Association and Craig Perkins from Regional Development Australia are presenting information about bio-energy and the opportunities that exist for its production here in Tasmania, at seminars in Hobart, Launceston, Burnie and Devonport. 

A particular focus will be the ways in which municipal councils and not-for-profit-organisations can save power, generate sustainable energy and benefit from funding from Regional Development Australia. Andrew Lang has just this week returned from Finland, Denmark and the USA where he has been exploring bio-energy and looking at the latest developments.

Hobart - October 10th, 11 a.m. - The Old Woolstore (Theatrette)
