The Kentucky Division of Energy (KDOE) administers a small grant program to enable Kentucky companies to install technologies that demonstrate the use of biomass for energy. Biomass is defined as land and water vegetation, and wastes that contain significant amounts of vegetable matter. It includes forestry and agricultural crops and residues, forestry and food processing wastes, animal wastes, and municipal solid waste.
Recent biomass energy demonstration projects funded through KDOE include the following:
