Groundbreaker of the Year Award

Companies and organizations that reach the groundbreaking stage represent the minority of potential bioenergy projects. The dedication and perseverance needed to navigate design, funding, permitting, purchase agreements and community acceptance indicates extreme aptitude worthy of acknowledgement. The Groundbreaker of the Year Award recognizes the company or organization that has significantly advanced the bioenergy industry by breaking ground and making meaningful headway on a commercial scale biomass-to-energy project.
