MA Sustainable Forest Bioenergy Initiative

The Department of Energy Resources (DOER), in partnership with the Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR), has identified biomass as a renewable energy resource with tremendous potential in Massachusetts due to the state's 3,000,000 acres of underutilized forestland and other large sources of wood. In 2008, DOER and DCR led the Mass. Sustainable Forest Bioenergy Initiative to facilitate the development of biomass energy projects and fuel supply infrastructure in the Commonwealth.
