It took almost two years, but Congress passed and the President signed a new, five-year farm bill that will strongly support renewable energy and energy efficiency programs that help keep this nation on the path to a clean energy future. And much of the credit for this major policy renewal can go to the many partners, state leaders and other renewable energy advocates who made lawmakers understand the need for these important programs. To help us understand the new changes and funding levels of the key programs, EESI’s Sustainable Biomass and Energy program and ELPC’s FarmEnergy.org program have each provided overviews of the key Energy Title programs. DTN/The Progressive Farmer has also conducted a review of the Energy Title. Please take a moment to read over each of these resources to garner a better understanding of the programs we will be working with over the next 5 years.
