To maintain electricity reliability through the middle of the decade, the CPUC has just issued a Decision calling for 11,500 MW of new renewable power, including 1,000 MW from “firm” renewables such as bioenergy and geothermal that are available when needed.
BAC member The Sierrra Institute published an important piece in the Sacramento Bee on the need for biomass utilization to help reduce wildfire risks and impacts of open burning.
BAC member Raven SR has just announced a partnership with Republic Services to produce renewable hydrogen from organic waste diverted from a landfill in Contra Costa County.
Biomass Magazine features Phoenix Energy’s North Fork project – and the need for many more forest BioMAT projects – to address California’s wildfire crisis.
BAC’s Executive Director published a piece in the San Francisco Chronicle on the urgency of reducing climate super pollutants – methane and black carbon – which is critical to avoid catastrophic climate change.
BAC submitted extensive comments on the CPUC Staff Proposal on biomethane procurement, recommending a much higher target that focuses on carbon intensity and includes all organic waste sources of biomethane.
The CPUC has released a draft proposal to require the state’s gas utilities to procure 75 billion cubic feet of biomethane annually by 2030.

That’s because bioenergy can reduce the most damaging climate pollutants known as Short-Lived Climate Pollutants (SLCPs). Climate scientists agree that we have less than a decade left to avert catastrophic – and largely irreversible – climate change. The most […]
