The Goulburn Murray Woka Yurringa Energy Project is based on Yorta Yorta country around Greater Shepparton in the Goulburn Murray region of Victoria. ‘Woka’ means earth and ‘yurringa’ mean sun in Yorta Yorta language.
It's a planned utility-scale bioenergy project which aims to bring industrial-scale renewable energy to the region by converting straw, crop stubble and other feedstock into biogas, electricity and other co-products such as fertiliser, hydrogen and biomethanol.
Yurringa Energy, as a key partner and shareholder, will provide strategic and commercial support to the project, ensuring maximum participation from First Nations businesses.
The Victorian government granted the project $411,759 in October 2022 through its Investment Fast Track Fund to complete planning works in order to advance the project to be investment ready.
