25x'25 Alliance releases report

By | August 27, 2010
Between 2004 and 2009 the renewable energy produced in the U.S. increased by about 23 percent, according to a report issued by the 25x'25 Alliance. The 32-page analysis released in June details the advances made since the group set its goal of meeting 25 percent of the nation's energy needs with renewable sources by 2025. In the bioenergy market, the report states that the market "has enormous growth potential both in the U.S. and around the world" but is limited by a number of factors, including policy, the blend wall and insufficient infrastructure. "The bottom line is that significant progress has been made," the report says, "but there is more to be done and major challenges to overcome."
