ACC Issues: Biomass Co-firing
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.
