Description:

In February 2008, the Western Governors’ Association adopted a policy reaffirming the governors’ strong commitment to enhance and diversify the region's transportation fuels portfolio. The Strategic Assessment of Bioenergy Development in the West represents a major step in fulfilling that commitment and expands upon earlier work through WGA's Clean and Diversified Energy Initiative and the Transportation Fuels Initiative. The Bioenergy Assessment Team was formed to examine the potential for future development and to create a comprehensive framework to assess environmental, technical and socioeconomic impacts associated with national, state and regional bioenergy and biomass management policies. This assessment will assist the governors individually and collectively as they develop bioenergy policies. The extensive evaluations conducted by the Assessment Team are contained in the following areas: Biomass Resources in the Western States, Biofuel Conversion Technologies, Spatial Analysis and Supply Curve Development, Analyses of Deployment Scenarios and Policy Interactions.
