Ontario has plentiful sources of bioenergy, including residual materials from forestry operations that are left to decay on the forest floor, waste matter from agricultural production and animal livestock activities, and by-products of food-processing operations.

More information on eligible fuel sources for bioenergy projects can be found in the Electricity Act, 1998.
