The federal government has propelled this growth with the implementation of tax credits through several pieces of legislation, including the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, that encourage the expansion of biomass power facilities. Furthermore, the majority of states have enacted renewable portfolio standards (RPSs), which require local utilities to generate electricity from renewable power as a percentage of their total energy portfolio. Increased campaigning for green technology also has influenced industry performance by sparking interest in technologies that replace pollutant-generating energy sources, such as coal and gas.... purchase to read more
