Russia is unique due to its unified power system that connects 70 localised energy systems and allows the transfer of power across the country. This is a unique situation that could allow the siting of renewable energy projects in some remote locations with access to transmission facilities which can deliver power to more densely populated areas. The overwhelming size of Russia also implies a strong development potential for all renewable energy resources.

The overall technical potential of biomass is estimated as 35 million toe, which, if converted to electrical power, could generate nearly 15,000 MWe. This includes sewage sludge, cattle manure, and lumber waste. With the reconstruction of pulp and paper plants, the use of wood waste is also becoming more prevalent.

Development of renewable energy projects is hindered by the lack of a legislative mandate (renewable portfolio standard or feed-in prices), low electric and heat tariffs, low public demand, and the overall lack of investment capital due to economic instability. Nevertheless, the shear magnitude of the renewable energy potential qualifies Russia as a leading candidate for development.

The conference will cover a number of topics revolving around:

The state of the bioenergy industry in Russia
Second-generation biofuels: progress in technology and development
Biotechnology in grain processing and production of "green" chemistry as value added fermentation products

OMG Roofing Products  - PowerGrip Plus Roof Mount System

OMG Roofing Products - PowerGrip Plus Roof Mount System

PowerGrip Plus Roof Mount System, a watertight structural attachment system used to secure ballasted solar racks and other equipment to roofs covered with thermoplastic (TPO and PVC) membranes. PowerGrip Plus is designed with wind performance in mind and offers ultimate tensile strength of 2,000 lbf. and ultimate shear strength of 1,075 lbf. Properly installed PowerGrip Plus units reduce rack movement and remaining watertight. PowerGrip Plus units are easy to install, saving both time and labor when compared to alternative options. A wide membrane skirt promotes easy welding in place, and the 15/8 diameter and 1/2 inch tall mount provides an optimal perch for securing brackets or struts. The exposed 1 inch tall and 3/8 inch diameter bolt and mounting stand are made from corrosion-resistant stainless steel and aluminum alloy for superior long-term performance.
