Analysts often point out that use of oil in the U.S. spikes as much as 30 percent from December through March due to the Northeastern region's dependence on No. 2 fuel oil for heat. One way to lessen the country's dependence on oil, then, is to replace heating oil with biomass. Swapping oil for biomass was the focus of the third annual Heating the Northeast with Renewable Biomass conference and expo that took place in early April. At the conference, organizers presented their vision of increasing the use of biomass for heat from its current 4 percent in 2010 to 18.5 percent in 2025. Doing so would inject $4.5 billion dollars annually into the regional economy and result in 140,200 permanent jobs. A written "Call to Action" was handed out to the roughly 500 attend...
