MA biomass regulations – what do they mean?

New regulations in Massachusetts  restrict eligibility of biomass power for renewable energy credits in the state.  Members of the Massachusetts delegation sponsored a Capitol Hill briefing by PFPI and the Natural Resources Defense Council on the new regulations. The briefing covered
  • The science of biomass/bioenergy carbon accounting
  • The recently finalized standards in Massachusetts and what they mean in the context of Northeastern states’ RPS programs
  • EPA’s on-going process to develop a framework for accurately accounting for carbon emissions from bioenergy production
