How California’s Biogas Market is Going to be Fixed… and When

California’s biogas market could be at a turning point in 2018 as regulatory bodies push to eliminate current barriers facing project developers.

"We're getting successes in ones and twos and tens of projects, and we need a couple of hundred, 500, a thousand," said Tim Olson, a senior policy adviser on transportation-related topics for the California Energy Commission, a state government agency.

"We're looking for evolution and growth in the market," he commented. Olson said California was "on the verge of pretty massive growth" in biofuel production, but that the market was still very much dependent on intervention in the form of targets and investment of seed money to help spur expansion to hundreds of projects.
