Bio-energy Roadmap


The Bio-energy Roadmap is an initiative to further develop South Australia’s bio-energy industry.

The bio-energy industry is in its infancy in South Australia but the technologies to convert biomass into electricity are commercially available.  Bio-energy production is a feasible solution to offset other energy use.

Stage 1

In March 2015, RenewablesSA commissioned Jacobs Group (Australia) to analyse South Australia’s bio-energy potential and produce a report and associated spatial data as a first step towards creating a substantial and sustainable bio-energy industry.

Stage 1 outputs

Stage 2

In May 2016, the first Bioenergy Roadmap Forum to explore the potential for projects was held in Mount Gambier.
