The 2012 Bioenergy Action Plan outlines strategies, goals, objectives, and actions that California state agencies will take to increase bioenergy development in California.

California has enormous potential to create energy from organic waste materials. Urban, agricultural and forest wastes that would otherwise go to landfills or be burned can, instead, be used to produce electricity, transportation fuels, combined heat and power, and more. Expanding bioenergy also creates jobs, provides local energy, enhances energy security, and helps protect public health and safety by reducing waste materials and fire danger.
