November 6, 2014, Bethel, Maine – Future Metrics has
published updated research that analyzes how compliance with Renewable
Portfolio Standards in the U.S. can be both a low-cost initiative and a job
creator.

 

This white paper
shows that converting old pulverized coal power plants to use advanced solid
biofuels rather than coal provides a ready-to-go solution for compliance with
states' renewable portfolio standards (RPS). The strategy does not cost jobs.

 

In fact, according to the research done by Future Metrics, the
strategy actually creates new jobs. This strategy is the lowest cost pathway to
compliance with RPS requirements and provides a renewable solution for the
intermittency of wind and solar.

 

The strategy provides:

  • The lowest cost renewable power generation solution;
  • Dispatchable and/or baseload power that is available when
    needed;
  • More jobs per megawatt-hour of energy than any other
    generation technology;
  • Very low carbon
