This RIRDC report describes how bioenergy feedstocks could be generated using agroforestry in the Central Tablelands region of New South Wales based upon information from engagement with stakeholders, a survey of landholder attitudes and Geographic Information System analysis. The report also includes recommendations for future planning, as well as details of how the work undertaken in this case study area can be applied to other regions.
Regional and state land management agencies could use the findings of this study to develop programs that harness economic potential of bioenergy to deliver better regional Natural Resource Management and development outcomes.The report will also be of use to stakeholders in existing local industries such as saw-milling, electricity generation, furniture-making and other value-adding forestry-based enterprises. These stakeholders are critical to understanding the feasibility of bioenergy options and implementing them.
