Biomass Thermal Heats Up

For a decade, Europe has been supporting biomass thermal energy, creating a large commercial and industrial market for resources like wood pellets. Here in the U.S., support has been absent; therefore, wood pellets play only a niche role in residential applications.

In this podcast, we’ll look at what the industry is doing to create a market for wood pellets and close the technology gap between Europe and the U.S.

We’ll take a trip to New England Wood Pellet, where General Manager Charlie Niebling tells us about the company’s efforts to create a market for commercial wood pellet boilers. He’ll talk about the shifting market conditions for biomass thermal, the advances in boiler technologies and how the Biomass Thermal Energy Council is pushing U.S. policymakers to step up support for this promising resource.
