Impacts of the biomass producer or collector tax credit on Oregon's wood fuels market and economy
MetadataShow full item record
In recent years, federal and state governments across the United States have sought to foster the development of renewable energy using a variety of policies. One such program is Oregon’s Biomass Producer or Collector (BPC) tax credit, which encourages the production, collection, and transportation of biomass for biofuel production. Relatively little is known about how policies such as the BPC tax credit affect woody biomass utilization, making it difficult to know which policies are the most effective at fostering biomass energy development. This briefing paper reports the results of an evaluation of the effects of the BPC tax credit on the Oregon’s wood fuel market and economy.
