The Department of Energy’s Bioenergy Technologies Office partners with the National Biomass State and Regional Partnerships’ five regional organizations that provide leadership in their region with regard to policies and technical issues, ultimately aiming to advance the use of biomass. The five regional organizations include:

  • Great Lakes Regional Biomass Energy Program
  • Northeast Regional Biomass Energy Program
  • Pacific Regional Bioenergy Partnership
  • Southern States Energy Board
  • Western Governors Association[1]

This website, from the DOE Bioenergy Technologies Office, lists state and regional resources related to bioenergy. Points of contact for each of the five regional organizations are listed here, as well as information on state-level programs.

The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) provides a geographic analysis of biodiesel plant production capacity in the US. The map below is from their website.

The EIA also provides an interactive map of biomass energy infrastructure and resources across the United States. Below is an example of the types of information that can be gleaned from the map, but other information is available as needed. The full interactive map is accessible here.
