DHEC Informs SCBC Members about Biomass and the Clean Power Plan

Wednesday, September 09, 2015 9:05 PM | Erika Myers
Today, Myra Reese and Henry Porter from the SC Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) provided presentations to an audience of approximately 40 SC Biomass Council members and guests about the implications of the proposed EPA Clean Power Plan and biomass resources in the state. Key takeaways from the presentations included:

  • Uncertainties about what types of biomass could be included as part of the state implementation plan (SIP); additional biomass definitions and eligible resources must be provided by the EPA; 
  • DHEC has limited understanding of biomass resource availability in SC and could use assistance from the biomass community to help inform SIP proposals; and
  • Clean Energy Incentives will be in place in 2020 and 2021 to encourage early investments in renewable energy, including potentially biomass energy.
