Louisiana’s mild climate and fertile soils are well-suited for biomass production. In addition, the state’s existing oil and gas infrastructure, along with its world-class transportation system could make it a biofuels hub in coming years.

Passed 25x'25 Resolution
The 25x’25 Alliance has released the results of its Phase II study from the University of Tennessee that assesses the impacts of various energy-related legislative scenarios on the U.S. agriculture and forestry sectors. The study, titled Implications of Energy and Carbon Policies for Agriculture and Forestry Sectors, and undertaken at the request of 25x'25 by the University of Tennessee's Bio-based Energy Analysis Group, projects how proposed energy and carbon payment policy instruments might impact the U.S. agricultural and forestry sectors. In addition to the national findings, we have developed narratives that highlight and explain the findings of the report as it relates to electricity, economic and land use impacts at the state level.
The 25x’25 Alliance is not endorsing a Renewable Electricity Standard or any other policy tool. We are releasing this report and narratives as background information and a resource for those interested in these policy mechanisms. Should you have any questions regarding the report findings, contact information for the report authors can be found on the state narrative document. We hope that you will find the data from the report useful in your advocacy and outreach efforts.
Louisiana 25x'25 Renewable Energy Roundtable Forum Resources
The Louisiana 25x’25 Renewable Energy Roundtable was held January 22, 2009, at the New Orleans Marriott. This event brought together leaders from state and city government, researchers from some of the state’s universities, and a “who’s who” of private sector leaders who are developing projects that will increase the production of biofuels, renewable electricity, and value-added bioproducts in the state. These leaders discussed the opportunities, challenges, and impacts associated with the use of forest and agricultural biomass and other clean technologies in the production of energy for electricity, transportation fuels, and other renewable energy applications.
