Topic: Bioenergy

please follow the Resources , Useful Websites and UB Library to answer these quastion :

1.What is bioenergy?

2.Describe the progression of bioenergy development through the generations:
a. First Generation
b. Second Generation
c. Third Generation
d. Fourth Generation
e. Next?

Discuss the main bioenergy feedstocks and the technologies applied to generate bioenergy from these feedstocks.

3.Discuss some of the opportunities for bioenergy to be generated in the following sectors:
a. Domestic (household)
b. Business and Industry
c. Agriculture
d. Horticulture/Viticulture
e. Aquaculture
f. Local Government
g. Government Departments

4.While the use of bioenergy is well established in many countries, there have been several barriers preventing bioenergy from playing a more substantial role in meeting the energy needs of Australia and Ballarat. What are these barriers and how could these be overcome to develop bioenergy in Australia?
