Biomass: A Key Tool in the Fight for Climate Change

At this point it is beyond doubt, Climate Change is one of the most important problems humans will face in this century. The main goal of the 2016 Paris Climate Agreement is to keep global temperature rise below 2º Celsius, mainly by significantly reducing the amount of carbon being emitted into the atmosphere.  Everybody has ideas about how to reduce carbon emissions and most focus on switching from fossil fuels like oil, natural gas, and coal towards clean sources of energy. But while you constantly hear about wind, solar and geothermal, and sometimes and nuclear, one solution that is quite…

Thermal RECs Explained: Added Value for Heating with Biomass

The positive financial impact of Thermal RECs is making biomass a preferred form of renewable energy in New Hampshire and Massachusetts for heating schools, commercial and industrial facilities, campuses, and hospitals. And Maine will have them soon. What Is a REC? A REC is a Renewable Energy Certificate. State laws, generally known as Renewable Portfolio Standards (RPS), require electric utilities to generate a specified fraction of their total output from renewable energy sources. At this time, 29 states and the District of Columbia have RPS laws. Requirements vary from state to state but most states divide their RPS into different…

How can a Dual Fuel Boiler System Benefit Your Building?

Hospitals, schools, factories, retirement homes, and other large buildings nearly always have redundant boilers—each fully capable of providing all heat needed during the coldest of winter days.  That engineered redundancy is a sensible and reliable way to make sure the chill of New England winters stays outside where it belongs. Facilities with redundant boilers typically burn just one fuel: natural gas, propane, or fuel oil. In most rural areas there are just two choices: oil or propane. Some smart facilities managers have set up their boilers to burn two different fuels. In such cases, the purchasing department can watch the…

5 Important Reasons that Biomass Fuel is Better than Oil

The oldest and best-known use of biomass fuel dates back to the bonfires our early ancestors used to keep warm. Today, burning wood pellets, dried wood chips and green wood chips has become an established alternative to using coal, oil and other non-renewable petroleum products for heating throughout much of the world. Here we’ll take a look at a few of the many benefits of biomass fuel. According to the Department of Energy, “Biomass is any organic material that has stored sunlight in the form of chemical energy, such as plants, agricultural crops or residues, municipal wastes, and algae.” 1….
