The New York Biomass Energy Alliance (NYBEA) today announced the completion and availability of an assessment tool to analyze the localized impacts of proposed woody biomass energy projects.

The calculator is intended to help community leaders, planners, and developers “quickly and realistically” clarify potential project impacts and payback for their specific communities.

NYBEA developed the new application in partnership with the New York Farm Viability Institute. A grant from the U.S. Forest Service Wood Education and Resource Center (WERC) helped fund development of the calculator.

Princeton, W. Va.–based WERC is part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Forest Service, according to WERC’s website.

The Excel-based tool is “primarily” geared for use in the Northeastern U.S., including New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and the New England states, but communities around the country can use the assessment tool, NYBEA said.
