Each Fuel Profile provides key information needed to understand the full risk of opening or investing in a new wood biomass facility.

These impact scenarios are customized using RISI's historical pricing and forecasting information to construct specific scenarios of supply, demand and pricing.

We work with the customer to understand what their desired end results are and report back on what the risks to these strategies are, how likely the customer is to reach their goal, and what their options are to improve the potential for reaching them.
  • Policy Reviews - RISI will review all local and federal policies (renewable standards, carbon credits, Biomass Crop Assistance Program (BCAP), etc.) requested by the customer and provide detailed analysis on what challenges or opportunities the full or partial implementations of these policies could present.
