Australian Renewable Fuels Week

Bioenergy Australia is proud to be bringing Australian Renewable Fuels Week to Canberra!

The aim of Australian Renewable Fuels Week is to foster the renewable liquid fuels and renewable gas sectors to support decarbonisation of Australia’s hard to abate sectors, generate jobs and regional economic development and enhance energy security.

Renewable Fuels Meets Federal Parliament networking reception will launch Australian Renewable Fuels Week on March 18, as well as celebrate our year-long Renewable Fuels Meets Parliament advocacy work.

Then, a two-day conference on March 19 and 20 at the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra, will bring thought leaders, decision-makers, and researchers together to examine the key opportunities and challenges of the industry.

The sold-out Australian Renewable Fuels Week 2023 conference was an overwhelming success with 50 international and domestic speakers bringing their unique perspectives on driving forward the Australian renewable fuels sector to over 500 participants.

We received fantastic media coverage across the week with more than 400 news items across the country achieving a total reach in excess of 123 million.

This year’s conference will be bigger and better than ever as we showcase ways to accelerate the decarbonisation of Australia’s hard to abate sectors.

We look forward to seeing you there!

The conference is taking place over 2 key days:
