Welcome to Bioenergy
Bioenergy is derived from organic materials including wood waste, agriculture crops, animal manure, food waste, as well as municipal waste streams (solids, waste water and landfill gases). Through conversion processes, this organic material can be transformed to produce electricity, heat, valuable biofuels and specialty chemicals.

As B.C. invests $1.5 billion in economic recovery and stimulus, the government has an unprecedented opportunity to move forward on its promise of a low-carbon economy that creates jobs while protecting the air, land, and water.
Indeed, the government has committed to putting its CleanBC climate plan at the core of B.C.’s economic recovery efforts.
The Pembina Institute has released Rebuilding a Resilient B.C., an action plan for investing in jobs and better health and well-being for British Columbians.
The action plan outlines four principles for a resilient recovery in B.C. and offers recommendations in support of low-carbon homes and buildings, clean transportation, and clean energy.

BC Bioenergy Network (BCBN) has been following the recent developments regarding the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). As an organization that hosts events or participates in public meetings and other gatherings involving employees, contractors, and guests, BCBN is mindful of our responsibilities to not contribute to the potential spread of COVID-19.
As per the recommendations of the BC Government, BCBN is practicing social distancing and will work remotely for at least two weeks. We will replace or reschedule all face-to-face meetings with tele/videoconference meetings. The April meeting for the West Coast Bioenergy Guild will take place by way of videoconference in the morning instead of in the evening. We invite all those interested to tune-in if their schedule permits.
We thank you for your understanding.
