North Country Biomass Energy Value Chain Baseline Assessment

The economic significance of biomass energy in the North Country region of New York State is growing as the transition toward a more renewable, regionally-sourced energy portfolio gains momentum. Given existing forest resources and the potential to use agricultural land to sustainably grow biomass crops, the biomass energy potential in the North Country (Clinton, Essex, Franklin, Hamilton, Jefferson, Lewis, and St. Lawrence counties) is substantial.
