BioEnergy Outlook: Interesting Times
There is no historical evidence that the expression “may you live in interesting times” is actually a Chinese curse, but, apocryphal or not, it seems appropriate in the immediate aftermath of the 2016 election. Regardless of one’s political affiliations, there is no denying that the next few years are going to be interesting. For renewable energy in general that might not always be a good type of interesting, but there is hope that biogas might fare better than most, or at least not suffer any...
