Queensland Bioenergy Fund

Energy from biomass and organic waste has played an important role in Queensland’s energy supply for many decades. Using bioenergy to supplement a diverse energy mix will help deliver the clean, reliable and affordable energy system needed to meet our renewable-energy targets. It will also enable new industry growth, particularly in regional areas.

The Bioenergy Fund is investing $4 million to work with industry to:

  • investigate options and pathways to expand bioenergy generation from underutilised biomass waste streams
  • support technology innovation.

Priority areas for the Bioenergy Fund:

  • advancing biomass-to-electricity conversion technologies
  • enabling growth in the biogas and biomethane sectors.

The program will contribute matched financial assistance of $250,000 to $2 million, contributing up to 50% towards the total project cost.

Next Steps for Applicants

The Bioenergy Fund is a one-off grant program and applications to the Fund are now closed.

Applications are being assessed against the established criteria in the Queensland Bioenergy Fund guidelines ( 1.3 MB). All applicants will be notified of the outcome of their application once the assessment process is complete.
