ABSTRACT
The article discusses the advantages of thermal biomass energy and its contribution to reducing carbon emissions. It is stated that state utility regulators have rated Arizona as a renewable energy source with thermal biomass. It is mentioned that the carbon neutrality is promoted by thermal biomass. It is emphasized that such biomass is widely fragmented, underestimated, and misunderstood in the U.S.
