  • Six wood energy cluster grants awarded in central, eastern Oregon

    The Oregon Department of Energy and the U.S. Forest Service recently awarded six grants to communities east of the Cascades to help spur the development of small wood energy projects. The grants – totaling $168,000 – are part of the Wood Energy Cluster Pilot Project launched last year. The grants are for feasibility studies, financial analysis and other project development activities. For more information, please go here.
  • Check out Oregon's new bioenergy resource map!

    From Clatsop County to Burns, and from Wallowa to Winston, Oregon is rich in biomass resources. This GIS-based map tool provides information about available biomass feedstock and bioenergy conversion facilities. If you click on a county or one of the facility locations, you will be able to see the information on available biomass supply and general facility information.
  • Creating energy from biomass
    Ponderosa pines, Deschutes County
    Using biomass to produce energy has been used for hundreds of years to meet humans' energy needs. We are finding new and more efficient ways of creating and using bioenergy. While wood is the most plentiful sources of biomass, many other types of biomass can be used to produce energy and fuel. To learn more, click on the red text below.
