The Bioenergy Association represents its members based in New Zealand and Australia.  We provide assistance and a wealth of bioenergy information to support members' business and promote their expertise and capabilities for undertaking activities in the New Zealand, SE Asia, Australian and Pacific with regard to bioenergy related solutions.

The Association advocates to Government on bioenergy related policy, develops best practice Technical Guides for New Zealand and Australia, hosts workshops and webinars and assists potential investors in bioenergy based solutions to assess technologies, market opportunities and market risks.
