What is bioenergy and how is it used? An overview of the numerous benefits of bioenergy.
Bioenergy can play a critical role in reducing the most potent climate pollutants - methane from organic waste and black carbon from wildfire - while producing the lowest carbon fuels of any kind, generating renewable power, and reducing the emissions from wildfire, dairies and landfills.
California dairies generate more than half of the state's methane emissions, a powerful climate pollutant that could instead be converted to millions of gallons of carbon negative transportation fuel or hundreds of megawatts of renewable power.
Bioenergy from forest waste, especially dead trees from California's bark beetle epidemic, can help to reduce catastrophic wildfires while providing renewable power and low carbon fuels.
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.
Gladstein Neandross has released "Gamechanger," a groundbreaking report on the potential for renewable gas and ultra clean engines to cut climate and air pollution emissions.
E3's study found that decarbonizing California's pipeline gas supply can help to meet the state's greenhouse gas reduction goals more easily and with greater benefits than through electrification alone.
California state agency issues urgent report on the state of California's forests, calling for more bioenergy to reduce catastrophic wildfires and air pollution emissions.
