Biomass Thermal Energy Council (BTEC)

BTEC To Hold Critical Policy Webinar

An update on biomass thermal in the halls of government

July 26th 12 pm EST -- Biomass thermal policies are on the move across the U.S., especially in the Northeastern states and at the federal level.  Join us July 26th, 12 PM ET for a live webinar spanning these federal-to-state policy incentives and regulatory developments.  Whether it's a Farm Bill energy program or state Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS) modification, these developments are critical for understanding today's bioenergy markets and future implications on project development.

During the webinar, speakers will first share a federal policy outlook on newly introduced thermal legislation and the Farm Bill, followed by a more focused discussion on biomass state policy in the hotbed of the Northeast region (e.g. New Hampshire, Vermont, Maine, New York, and Massachusetts). Finally, the speakers will describe the specific case study of Maryland and learn about that state's successes and challenges working to implement biomass thermal energy policies from scratch.   

Attend the Webinar and Learn: 

  • The federal policy outlook for biomass thermal energy, including the Farm Bill and BTU Act 
  • Top Northeast U.S. biomass thermal policy developments, addressing items like pilot programs and RPS revisions
