BTEC To Hold Critical Policy Webinar - July 26th

Biomass thermal policies are on the move across the U.S., especially in the Northeastern states and at the federal level. Join us July 26th, at 12 PM ET for a live webinar spanning these federal-to-state policy incentives and regulatory developments.

Whether it's a Farm Bill energy program or state Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS) modification, these developments are critical for understanding today's bioenergy markets and future implications on project development.

During the webinar, speakers will first share a federal policy outlook on newly introduced thermal legislation and the Farm Bill, followed by a more focused discussion on biomass state policy in the hotbed of the Northeast region (e.g. New Hampshire, Vermont, Maine, New York, and Massachusetts). Finally, the speakers will describe the specific case of Maryland and learn about that state's successes and challenges working to implement biomass thermal energy policies from scratch.

Attend the Webinar and Learn:
-The federal policy outlook for biomass thermal energy, including the Farm Bill and BTU Act
-Top Northeast U.S. biomass thermal policy developments, addressing items like pilot programs and RPS revisions
-Discussion of current incentives for biomass thermal systems among the Northeastern states
-Case study on Maryland's biomass thermal energy campaign, its successes and challenges
-Additional topics during the live Question and Answer session

WS510 Secondary Standard

WS510 Secondary Standard

In the monitoring of large photovoltaic (Utility Scale), in assessing potential sites (Solar-assessment), or in up and coming electricity cost saving initiatives projects (Commercial & Industrial), the WS510 now provides the market a secondary standard pyranometer, ultrasonic wind speed, ultrasonic wind direction, temperature, pressure and humidity all in a single unit.. This sensor meets the high demands of the world meteorological organization (WMO) through the active valving at air temperature measurement and the inertia- and maintenance-free measurement of wind speed and wind direction on the ultrasonic principle. Equipped with a Kipp & Zonen pyranometer of the secondary standards, the WS510-UMB Compact weather sensor from Lufft unites the precision of a variety of meteorological individual sensors in a single all-in-one device, for the first time.
