Biomass Energy Workshop

Time: 8:30 am-5:00 pm

Description:

Humboldt State University and the University of California will co-host a biomass energy workshop Thursday, November 7 at the Humboldt Bay Aquatic Center.

The day-long workshop will bring together technology experts, project developers, community organizations and land managers to address opportunities for bioenergy development in the region. The event is co-hosted by HSU’s Schatz Energy Research Center and the University of California’s Woody Biomass Utilization Group.

Recent research by Schatz identified biomass as a key renewable energy resource for the North Coast.
Workshop goals include providing a forum for stakeholders to identify issues and articulate a vision for the role of bioenergy in forest restoration and management regionally. The workshop will also aim to increase understanding of the environmental, engineering and economic considerations of developing and retaining wood bioenergy systems.
Forest-based bioenergy has the potential to provide grid stability, renewable electricity, and heat to help meet California’s expanding energy demand, according to workshop organizers.
