CA Biomass Working Group

The Watershed Center is a leader and co-founder of the California Forest Biomass Working Group (CA Forest BWG). The CA Forest BWG was founded to encourage biomass development, related policy, and economic opportunities in California. Composed of a variety of wood energy interests, the CA Forest BWG includes organizations with diverse perspectives that gather and distribute information and data about forest biomass energy use in California.

The CA Forest BWG acts as a brain trust and information clearinghouse for forest biomass opportunities and issues. Addressing wood energy policy, project opportunities and barriers, technology progress, funding opportunities and other relevant topics, the CA Forest BWG provides a forum for information sharing, innovation, and strategy development. By linking representatives from a variety of sectors including restoration, industry, academia, and policy, this collaboration supports forest biomass in a uniquely comprehensive way.
