About this website
It is designed for:
- primary producers and their advisors
- regional economic developers
Most of the content on this website lives on other websites – we bring it all together in a way that makes it easier for you to find information that is useful, credible and relevant to you.
The website is not about being an advocate for bioenergy – it is about providing credible information.
It aims to inform decision-making, identify opportunities for primary producers, and give credible knowledge to develop sound policies.
Who owns it?
The strategy was developed by RIRDC and its partners in the National Primary Industries Research, Development and Extension Framework.
Framework partners include:
- the bioenergy industry
- federal and state governments
- relevant rural R&D corporations
The aim of the framework is greater coordination among these sectors to better harmonise their primary industry RD&E roles and assure that they work together effectively to maximise net benefits to Australia—especially improving the productivity and competitiveness of the primary industries, and making the best use of Australia’s natural resources under a changing climate.
RIRDC has invested $4 million since 2006 in RD&E projects to develop a sustainable, advanced generation bioenergy industry in Australia. Given that its impact in the field was very high for its funding, RIRDC is now focused on communication and extension activities to add value to national and international research efforts.
