The Bio-energy Roadmap is the first stage in further developing 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.
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.
The bio-energy roadmap is an interactive map which:
1. describes commercially available conversion technologies such as
a. digestors to produce gas;
b. combustion technologies to burn biomass; and
c. Gasification technologies to produce synthetic fuels
2. analyses the state for potential feedstocks that could input into these technologies;
3. analyses the state for heat and electricity demand and matches this back to feedstock supply; and
4. addresses transport logistics
This project has significantly increased information about the potential location and use of bio-energy generation in the state.
