In June 2013, the Maryland Thermal Renewable Energy Credit Task Force was authorized (Chapters 323, Acts of 2013).
The Task Force analyzed how to restructure the renewable energy portfolio standard to incorporate thermal energy sources, including energy from wood-derived biomass. Further, the Task Force determined whether a separate compliance tier is needed for thermal energy sources, and what the appropriate method would be for awarding energy credits for thermal energy sources. Whether any changes to State law are necessary to incorporate thermal energy sources into the renewable energy portfolio standard also was considered by the Task Force.
On January 15, 2014, the Task Force submitted its report to the Governor and General Assembly.
