Texas ag department seeks bioenergy proposals

As diversifying the state's energy resources becomes increasingly important, Agriculture Commissioner Todd Staples announced the Texas Department of Agriculture, in cooperation with the Comptroller's State Energy Conservation Office, is requesting proposals from entities to conduct a comprehensive bioenergy study. The report will identify the state's bioenergy needs and investigate opportunities for Texas within the renewable energy industry.

The goal of the study is to provide TDA, the Texas Bioenergy Policy Council, the Texas Bioenergy Research Committee and the Texas Legislature with an in-depth review of the capabilities and challenges of the Texas bioenergy industry.
