Repowering Assistance Program


The Repowering Assistance Program provides payments to eligible biorefineries to replace fossil fuels used to produce heat or power to operate the biorefineries with renewable biomass. It provides reimbursement payments to help offset the costs associated with converting existing fossil fuel systems to renewable biomass fuel systems.

The program encourages the use of renewable biomass as a replacement fuel source for fossil fuels used to provide process heat or power in the operation of eligible biorefineries.

The amount of assistance is determined by the availability of funds, the project scope, and the ability of the proposed project to meet all the scoring criteria.  In particular, the percentage reduction in fossil fuel used by the biorefinery, the quantity of fossil fuels replaced by a renewable biomass system, and the cost effectiveness of the renewable biomass system.

Payments are made for eligible post-application costs incurred during the construction phase of the repowering project.
