The Biomass Thermal Energy Council (BTEC) announced its newest webinar,“Regional Focus on Biomass Energy: the Midwest,” scheduled for November 21st at 2 PM ET, 1 PM CT. This is the final webinar in a three-part series examining biomass heating markets and policies in different regions of the United States. This event is made possible with funding from the U.S. Forest Service’s Wood Education and Resource Center (WERC).

The Midwest, with its long, cold winters and large amount of forest and agricultural biomass, is well suited for using biomass for heating. However, biomass thermal is not a common heating option and is nearly completely overlooked in state energy policy. To improve renewable energy use and elevate the importance of biomass heating in the Midwest, the biomass thermal industry in the Midwest is developing a path to become more marketable and sustainable in the future. The recent formation of the group “Heating the Midwest” is a key step in this direction.

The 12th BTEC webinar will discuss the current situation in the Midwest, examine challenges and opportunities for market development, and analyze successful state policies and regional advocacy.

The webinar’s panelists include Becky Philipp of the Agriculture Utilization Research Institute and Michael Curci of Indeck Energy, who will discuss resources and market opportunities, as well as Pamela Porter of the Biomass Resource Energy Center, who will present about technology and policy. Gregg Mast, VP Agriculture & Biomass Business Cluster of the BioBusiness Alliance of Minnesota will moderate the event.
Registration for this event is free and required and available online.

“As a Midwesterner myself, I’m excited about the insight, organization, and energy from the Heating the Midwest group,” said Joseph Seymour, BTEC Executive Director. “In this webinar, viewers will learn more about this group and the opportunities, current challenges and future goals for biomass thermal fuels and applications throughout the Midwest.”

In June 2010, the USDA Forest Service awarded BTEC a grant to advance education and outreach on biomass thermal energy. The grant project has produced an array of educational tools, including fact sheets, web resources, webinars, audio interviews, and a slide presentation for use by all stakeholders. All tools are free and are publicly accessible on the BTEC website.
