California falling behind bioenergy goals

The 2009 Bioenergy Action Progress to Plan addresses the State of California’s progress in developing a coordinated state government approach to bioenergy issues and responds to Executive Order S‐06‐06 that established biomass productions and use targets for California.

 The 2006 Action Plan identified 63 action items for various state agencies (Attachment 1). Despite better coordination within state agencies, progress towards meeting California’s ambitious bioenergy goals has been slow, and in some cases, the state is losing ground.
