Investigating energy efficiency, biomass for bioenergy and other renewable energy options for primary producers and agricultural industries.


Energy is a crucial input into all farming systems. However, energy cost, emissions and reliability are significant issues for the NSW agricultural sector, eroding profitability and international competitiveness. To help address these issues, NSW DPI is investing $11.7 million to develop and deliver the Clean Energy Solutions, Energy Efficiency Solutions and Biomass for Bioenergy projects as part of the Climate Change Research Strategy.

To find out more about how primary producers can improve energy efficiency and deploy clean energy technologies including solar, wind, bioenergy, hydrogen and storage options, click on the links below.
