Accomplishments Summary

Leveling the Playing Field

Biomass resources will not be directed to their most efficient uses without technology-neutral energy policy. And the current reality is that less-efficient electricity and transportation end-uses for biomass are heavily incentivized at both the state and federal levels, in addition to the continuing subsidization of fossil fuels and other renewable energy technologies like wind, solar, and geothermal.

Incentives in one sector impact the price of raw biomass materials in all other sectors. America needs a level playing field, where biomass thermal can compete on its merits with biomass power and transportation fuels.
