30 states have renewable portfolio standards ranging from 10-33% between 2015-2025. Pending Federal legislation would establish a national renewable energy/efficiency standard of 20% in 2020. Coal consuming utilities and industrials are exploring biomass as an option for RPS compliance.

Biomass is expected to be the largest source of renewable energy ~ comprising 6.4% of the targeted 15% RES by 2020 according to JP Morgan.

Join us for a pragmatic assessment of:

  • U.S. biomass resources & supply chain.
  • Drivers for biomass use in the U.S.
  • Biomass co-firing basic principles & implementation.
  • Major power plant impacts from biomass co-firing.
  • Practical experience & project status.

There is no charge for ACC Members but pre-registration is required.
