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
