Latest BTEC Webinar on Biomass Thermal Finance

Register now to attend the Biomass Thermal Energy Council's (BTEC) free webcast on Wednesday, June 29 at 2PM ET.

Register now to attend the free webcast, "Biomass Thermal Finance: Options, steps, and resources for biomass project development," on Wednesday, June 29 at 2PM ET by the Biomass Thermal Energy Council (BTEC), and hear from three experienced panelists on their insights into financing models for varying scales of biomass thermal projects. This is the seventh webinar in a series funded in part by the USDA's Wood Education and Resource Center (WERC).


Escalating fossil fuel costs and environmental concerns are raising interest in the wider use of biomass for heating and combined heat and power applications. As with any capital intensive project, biomass thermal installations must make sense on paper before groundbreaking. Yet, these projects often weigh different financial approaches than other energy sources, varying by scale, location, and available incentives.

This free webinar will highlight successful financing models for commercial to industrial sized biomass energy facilities with a focus on thermal energy production. Attend and learn:
Considerations for making a project financeable and increasing project success
Financing options for large, industrial scale biomass facilities
How community sized projects leverage public support and incentives
Why environmental commodities may add increased value to biomass thermal projects
How real world projects combine local, state, federal, and international financial resources

Speakers include:
Greg Montgomery, Managing Partner, Abundant Power
Fred Reagan, Facilities Director, Merrimack Valley School District
Dan Kuipers, Managing Partner, Sustainable Energy Financing, LLC
Moderated by Joseph Seymour, Program Coordinator Policy and Government Affairs, Biomass Thermal Energy Council (BTEC)

Kipp & Zonen - DustIQ the novel soiling monitoring solution for solar panels

Soiling of the panel glass is one of the major problems in the rapidly expanding solar energy market, with the attendant loss of efficiency and reduction in performance ratios. Now, there's a new, simple and very cost-effective alternative. Based on Kipp & Zonen's unique Optical Soiling Measurement (OSM) technology, DustIQ can be easily added to new or existing solar arrays and integrated into plant management systems. The unit is mounted to the frame of a PV panel and does not need sunlight to operate. It continuously measures the transmission loss through glass caused by soiling, so that the reduction in light reaching the solar cells can be calculated.
