The National Academy of Sciences has found that the U.S. can achieve 100% renewable power by mid-century, but only with a diverse portfolio that includes bioenergy to provide flexible generation power.
San Francisco Chronicle Letter to the Editor on the importance of bioenergy for grid stability and to reduce burning or landfilling of organic waste.
BAC and TSS Consultants article on how forest biomass to energy can improve forest health, cut pollution, protect water supplies and provide renewable energy.
BAC and its members helped to pass several new laws to boost bioenergy production and use, increase incentives and remove regulatory hurdles. Along with new climate change laws, these will quickly accelerate bioenergy development in California.
Tom Price of All Power Labs talks about carbon negative energy from gasification of organic waste.
George Minter, Senior VP of SoCalGas, explains why California should continue to invest in the gas sector, especially renewable biogas.
CR&R and Southern California Gas Company are near completion of the state's first pipeline biomethane project in many years. Once the pipeline interconnection is complete, it will transmit carbon negative biogas from CR&R's facility to SoCalGas customers for transportation fuel, power generation and other uses.
