Wisconsin Biogas Feedstock and Industry Survey 2021

​The Public Service Commission of Wisconsin - Office of Energy Innovation (OEI) and University of Wisconsin - Stevens Point (UWSP) have completed a statewide Biogas Feedstock and Industry Survey. The survey assesses the current status, challenges, and future opportunities of biogas facilities throughout Wisconsin.

In partnership with both students and staff at UWSP, more than 300 Wisconsin facilities, including wastewater treatment facilities, landfills, industrial and food processing facilities, were asked to participate through electronic and mail survey submission. This project serves as a follow-up to OEI's Biogas Survey Report conducted in 2015.​
