Baseload Summit to Focus on Future Prospects for Geothermal, Biomass and Hydropower June 7-8 in Reno

The Summit will bring together industry leaders, policy makers, public representatives and other experts to engage in a dialogue about the issues and opportunities facing these industries.

Washington, DC (April 14, 2016) -- The futures of renewable power and climate progress are tied to the prospects for baseload renewable technologies. During this critical time, the Geothermal, Hydropower and Biomass Associations are excited to launch the first Baseload Renewable Energy Summit, to be held June 7-8 in Reno, Nevada.


The Summit will bring together industry leaders, policy makers, public representatives and other experts to engage in a dialogue about the issues and opportunities facing these industries. Nearly two-thirds of U.S. renewable electricity comes from baseload sources - hydropower, biomass and geothermal. And, as renewable production grows, these baseload technologies are projected by EIA to continue to produce a majority of renewable power through at least 2040.

Often sidelined in the discussion of renewable energy, the Summit will be a premier opportunity for positive change for baseload renewables. Geothermal, hydropower, and biomass often face similar issues at three levels: political, financial, and societal. The Summit will focus on discussing key issues facing these industries with utilities, regulators, policy makers and the public. Experts will join panel discussions to shed light on the critical importance of baseload, renewable energy sources for grid reliability, reducing carbon dioxide emissions, meeting rising energy demand and keeping consumer prices low.

This year's Baseload Renewable Energy Summit will feature the combined voices of three major baseload renewables organizations: The Geothermal Energy Association (GEA), the National Hydropower Association (NHA), and the Biomass Power Association (BPA).

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

You haven't installed a tile mount that is easier to install than the Solar Tile Mount manufactured by TRA Snow and Sun. Solar Tile Mount is used on all tile roof profiles: flat, mid, and high. It is made in the USA of aluminum alloy for strength and excellent corrosion resistance. Solar Tile Mount is built to allow more ease in installation with more rise from the tile surface to the rail for better air flow below panels. The adjustable base is longer than most allowing attachment 6" to the left or right to have the bracket in the base of the pan of the tile and still fasten to the rafter. Solar Tile Mount is adjustable for counter batten systems from ¾" to 3". The horizontal rail is directly above base fasteners giving greater uplift resistance than any other system. For superior waterproofing apply TRA Snow and Sun's butyl backed VersaFlash aluminum flashing. No tile flashing is needed on top of the tile for greater labor and material cost savings.
