Webinar Description:

As the regulatory environment for coal-fired power generation is becoming increasingly more challenging; and the desire to incorporate renewable energy into an electric supply portfolio is heightened, utilities are exploring different fuel source options.  One possible way of achieving all is to modify the fuel source at existing power plants to include an engineered biomass solid fuel.  Creating an engineered biomass fuel was investigated during this DEED grant and results to date will be reported in this webinar.   

The webinar will cover the following: 

  • Columbia Water and Light’s Renewable Portfolio Standard, History of renewable resources to date, Collaborative team to develop a product - efforts to incorporate biomass feedstock at the existing power plant.
  • The economic impact the engineered biomass products provide in the region. 
  • Biomass – Necessary steps  
  • The annual renewable energy concept – why it’s good and further research necessary to identify carbon neutral.
