Paths to Sustainable Distributed Generation Through 2050; Matching Local Waste Biomass
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
This overall goal of this project is to perform analytical research to match locally available waste biomass resources in California with grid, industrial, and building power and waste heat needs. This modeling effort will highlight locations where waste biomass can be used most efficiently and sustainably for disturbed generation by developing scenarios through 2050 that identify the most promising opportunities for waste biomass DG, identify key technical and regulatory hurdles to waste biomass DG utilization, develop tools for matching available waste biomass resources with energy production opportunities, and suggest solutions for achieving cost parity with fossil fuels.
