Bioenergy & Thermal Energy

Produced from renewable and biological sources, bioenergy accounts for approximately 6 percent of Canada’s total energy supply. It is an increasingly popular energy source with its capacity to convert biomass to energy and fuels that can be used in industry, transportation, agriculture and even residential heating.
