Description

The Massachusetts Clean Energy Center offers a Commonwealth Organics-to-Energy grant program. Organics-to-Energy grants support the use of anaerobic digestion and other technologies that convert source-separated organic wastes into electricity and thermal energy.

Grants of up to $60,000 are available on a rolling basis to Massachusetts public entities which are municipalities that are customers of an investor-owned utility or have municipal electric companies that have officially joined the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center's Renewable Energy Trust. State agencies, state authorities and legislatively authorized regional planning authorities are also eligible for organics-to-energy grants. Future rounds of solicitation are projected to be open to a broader range of applicants.

Grants are currently available in the following areas:
* Technical Study/Technical Services, which are available to public entities for the evaluation of, or planning for, organics-to-energy projects within an applicant's jurisdiction.
* Construction and Pilot Projects, which are available for qualifying projects that use eligible technologies that convert source-separated organic materials into electricity or heat with minimal liquid or solid byproducts requiring disposal.
*Feasibility Studies, which are available for potential projects that process source-separated organic materials into electricity or useable heat.
