Event description


Bioenergy can revolutionise the energy sector. It may be the world's primary source of renewable energy and yet opportunities still abound for bioenergy to generate fuel, heat and power from sustainably-sourced organic matter. Understanding the challenges and possibilities of bioenergy is key to tapping into this huge potential growth.

Join us for a discussion with Queensland's leading experts to discuss the future of this sector.

This is the first event in EnergyLab's two-part event series on startup opportunities in BioFutures, leading to a hackathon to generate BioFutures startup ideas. More information and registration for the series below.
