Wood-waste and hydropower are foundation of state’s clean energy economy
Abundant biomass and solar resources, falling materials costs, and innovative research have launched Georgia into the national spotlight as a clean energy leader. State and federal policies have helped to make the Peach State the fastest-growing solar market in the country. In addition, the state ranks No. 1 nationally in commercial timberland, making woody biomass—energy made from wood and wood waste-derived products such as wood pellets—a major component of its renewable energy sector.
