CHP and Woody Biomass One-Day Workshop
The Business of Biomass: Pellets and Power
Pellets and Combined Heat and Power (CHP) are two growing opportunities for the bioenergy industry in the region. Pellets - from wood or other biomass - continue to grow in popularity for domestic use and export markets. CHP systems utilizing biomass remains one of the most cost effective and efficient uses of renewable biomass fuel.
The workshop will be held at the West Virginia University Erickson Alumni Center in Morgantown, West Virginia

Co-sponsored by the USDA-AFRI NEWBio bioenergy consortium and the US-DOE Mid Atlantic CHP Technical Assistance Partnership, and delivered by the West Virginia Extension Service and Penn State Extension. 

This event is free of charge, but you must register in advance. 


Rescheduled for a Later Date
PERC/Mid-Atlantic CHP TAP CHP Workshop for Higher Education Facilities
PERC, the Pennsylvania Environmental Resource Consortium, in cooperation with the Mid-Atlantic CHP Technical Assistance Partnership, is presenting a workshop on the exciting potential of Combined Heat & Power. We will assemble at the Navy Yard in Philadelphia and learn about the opportunities Combined Heat and Power can present for reducing energy consumption, cutting green house gas emissions and saving precious budgetary dollars.  After a brief intro to CHP, we will explore CHP applications for colleges along with a look at potential CHP design.  Speakers from a number of PERC schools will discuss their experiences with Combined Heat and Power, speaking to operational efficiency and results but also to the practical questions of how they got the project to happen. 

This is a great event for physical plant/ facilities officers as well as campus sustainability directors and green team members--and any faculty or staff person with an interest in greening their campus's energy consumption.  Bringing faculty and staff with a variety of interests and responsibilities is strongly encouraged.


March 7-8, 2012
Globalcon 2012 at the Atlantic City Convention Center, Atlantic City, NJ is presented by the Association of Energy Engineers, and is designed specifically to facilitate those seeking to expand their knowledge of fast-moving developments in the energy field, explore promising new technologies, compare energy supply options, and learn about innovative and cost-conscious project implementation strategies. As part of the technical program, the Mid-Atlantic CHP TAP will chair a Renewable Energy & New Technologies  session,  focused on CHP,  on the first day the conference.


First Quarter 2012
SEE Action Industrial Energy Efficiency and CHP Webinar Series

Webinar 1: U.S. EPA Regulations and CHP - January 17, 2012
Webinar participants will learn the impacts of a suite of U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) rules on CHP implementation and operation. Regulations discussed will include air (Mercury and Air Toxics Standards and the Cross-State Air Pollution rule), water/solid waste (Cooling Water Intake Structures and Coal Combustion Residuals rules), and industrial/commercial/institutional boilers (National Emissions Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants).

Webinar 2: Showcasing Model Utility IEE Programs - February 7, 2012
During this Webinar, utilities that have implemented successful energy efficiency programs for industrial customers will showcase their design and implementation approaches to other utilities, industrial customers, and key stakeholders.

Webinar 3: Elevating IEE Regulatory Issues for Commissioners - March 6, 2012
This Webinar will examine regulatory issues that impact utility incentive programs, such as flexibility and consistency in offerings, free-ridership, and risk mitigation techniques. Utility, commission, and industrial customer viewpoints will be shared.
