Renewable, Reliable Energy...

BIOMASS POWER FROM LOCAL RESOURCES

Biomass power producers make renewable electricity from local natural resources, in the process supporting the rural communities that rely on these resources for their livelihoods and quality of life.

ABOUT US

Michigan Biomass is a business coalition that advocates for the state’s independent, grid-connect, wood-fired power plants.

ENERGY POLICY

Energy

Informing and educating the public, policymakers and related sectors and industries on the value of biomass power.

OUR COMMUNITIES

Biomass power creating Jobs

Biomass power provides local jobs in our communities because the source of our energy – wood fiber – is locally sourced.

WHAT IS BIOMASS POWER?

Biomass power plants utilize materials that would otherwise go to waste and help support the power grid.

Biomass aids forest health, and habitat maintenance & development and reduces need for landfill space.

Biomass power provides local jobs because the source of our energy – wood fiber – is locally produced.

Trees and forests are not cut down just for biomass energy. That doesn't make sense for forests and it doesn't make sense economically.

Biomass fuels recovered from forest residuals, byproducts from forest products manufacturing and wood diverted from landfills provide markets for this low- value fiber, eliminating waste and lower the cost of wood products.

Biomass power is "baseload" generation. That means it brings technical benefits to "The Grid" and industrial loads that require baseload power.

OUR POLICY POSITION

Independent power producers like members of Michigan Biomass have been an important part of the state's energy portfolio for decades. Good energy policy preserves this generating capacity and all the economic, environmental, and technical benefits it provides.

Michigan Biomass supports state and federal policies that ensure independent power producers have access to the electricity markets that enable them to provide a suite of services to forest managers the forest products industry by providing firm and reliable power generation to grid operations and the nation’s bulk power supply.
