View the webinar, “Biomass Thermal Finance: Options, steps, and resources for biomass project development,” from the Biomass Thermal Energy Council (BTEC), and hear from three experienced panelists on their insights into financing models for varying scales of biomass thermal projects. This is the seventh webinar in a series funded in part by the USDA's Wood Education and Resource Center (WERC).

Rising fossil fuel costs and environmental concerns are raising interest in wider use of biomass for heating and combined heat and power applications. As with any capital intensive projects, biomass thermal energy project developments must make sense on paper before implementation can begin. Yet, these projects often weigh different financial approaches than other energy sources.

This free webinar highlights successful financing models for commercial to industrial sized biomass energy facilities with a focus on thermal energy production. Attend and learn:

--Considerations for making a project financeable and increasing project success
--Financing options for large, industrial scale biomass facilities
--How community sized projects leverage public support and incentives
--Why environmental commodities may add increased value to biomass thermal projects
--How real world projects combine local, state, federal, and international financial resources

--Greg Montgomery, Managing Partner, Abundant Power
--Dan Kuipers, Managing Partner, Sustainable Energy Financing, LLC
--Fred Reagan, Facilities Director, Merrimack Valley School District
--Moderated by Joseph Seymour, Program Coordinator Policy and Government Affairs, Biomass Thermal Energy Council (BTEC)
