What Excites You Most About Bioenergy?
Members of the AHB Team Answer the Question
Washington State University Extension
Bioenergy is awesome because of its potential to address many of the environmental issues we are facing. Energy crops can help restore degraded farmland and collecting forest residue can reduce the threat of wildfires. Bioenergy creates opportunities to utilize our local resources to address global climate change.
I’m excited to work on bioenergy projects because we won’t be able to rely on fossil fuels indefinitely due to availability and greenhouse gas emissions. The work we do now secures our energy sources for future generations, including my grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Bioenergy is exciting because it has the potential to positively affect so many aspects of our community and the world as a whole. Not only does it address energy and environmental sustainability, but also economic development and local, agricultural diversity. I truly feel bioenergy is a vital piece in a sustainable future.
