As a large producer of corn and soybeans, Missouri will benefit from the growth of the biofuels industry. In addition, the state's hydrological, geothermal, and solar resources have yet to be fully utilized.

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.
