Capacity Building Projects
Capacity-building projects help organizations and companies acquire the knowledge or capabilities they need to implement effective bioenergy initiatives.
To date, BCBN has invested approximately $1.42 million into 12 capacity building projects, ranging from market evaluations, to biomass availability studies, to planning and technical feasibility studies.
- Helped create industry hubs in the BC North Central Region, close to large sources of woody biomass;
- Provided support for BC’s agriculture industry to develop the “agri-energy” sector; and
- Assisted First Nations groups to develop solutions for replacing diesel and propane systems with reliable and renewable energy systems in remote BC communities.
- Facilitating collaborative research between BC and Korea, investigating carbon reduction related to fuels and chemicals from biomass.
