Biomass Power Association (BPA)
Biomass Power Association is a member-driven organization with the goal of increasing the use of biomass power and creating new jobs and opportunities in the biomass industry. Biomass Power Association educates policymakers at the state and federal level about the benefits of biomass and provides regular briefings and research to keep members fully informed about public policy impacting the biomass industry. Members include local owners and operators of existing biomass facilities, suppliers, plant developers and others.
The Biomass Power Association is the nation’s leading organization working to expand and advance the use of clean, renewable biomass power. Led by President and CEO Bob Cleaves, the Association represents 80 biomass power plants in 20 states across the U.S. Currently, the biomass power industry reduces carbon emissions by more than 30 million tons each year and provides 14,000 jobs nationwide, many of which are in rural areas.
Biomass Power Association is actively involved in the legislative process and supports policies that increase the use of biomass power and other renewable energy sources in America’s energy portfolio. As policymakers at every level explore ways to lower greenhouse gases and reduce America’s dependence on foreign oil, Biomass Power Association is the leading advocate for a strong commitment to clean, renewable biomass energy.
The website includes presentations and documents on biomass power, renewable electricity standards and legislation relating to biomass power.
