BC Bioenergy Network

Education and Advocacy Services

BCBN takes an active role in developing the bioenergy and bio-economy sectors through education, knowledge sharing and advocacy. Between 2008 and 2013, BCBN sponsored 43 conferences and workshop events in BC, contributing $233,000 in direct financial support. BCBN has also helped attract major world-class events to BC, including the March 2013 Global Methane Initiative Expo.

Beyond our many outreach activities, BCBN has supported specific skills development and educational initiatives, including:

  • Five district energy and community energy workshops around BC;
  • A Bioenergy Scholarship at the University of Northern British Columbia; and
  • The Student Biotechnology Network in the Lower Mainland

Advisory, Networking, and Liaison Services

BCBN helps projects secure funding and proceed to implementation. These efforts include:

  • Connecting promising technologies and solutions among project proponents;
  • Helping funders, investors, and regulators better understand the opportunities in bioenergy deployment;
  • Actively participating in stakeholder conferences, consultations, and initiatives to assess and promote bioenergy’s important role in the integrated bio-economy

Realizing the full promise of bioenergy means ensuring a new generation of British Columbians can find new ways to create greater value from BC’s forests and biomass resources.
