About the Project
Two years ago we set out to examine the state of American agriculture and make recommendations to Congress to help secure a prosperous future for our nation’s farmers. This undertaking, which we chaired, is known as the 21st Century Agriculture Policy Project.
Sponsored Research: RES
The Bipartisan Policy Center’s National Commission on Energy Policy awarded the University of Tennessee’s Biobased Energy Analysis a grant to undertake an economic analysis of the economic costs and benefits from a Federal RPS policy to agricultural counties in Colorado, Florida, Kansas, and North Carolina. The focus of this study centers on the impact of RES policy on farm revenue, taking a close look at the true potential of new markets for biomass resources in these states and the revenue that these markets could generate at the farm level.
