May 1, 2002 [SolarAccess.com] Southern Company’s switchgrass Renewable Energy project has taken its second environmental award. The company is testing the use of switchgrass at its Gadsden Steam Plant, which is owned and operated by the company’s Alabama Power subsidiary. Billy Zemo, a senior engineer at Plant Gadsden, and Doug Boylan, a research engineer at Southern Company in Birmingham, have won the Electric Power Research Institute’s 2001 Technology Transfer Award for helping utility industry leaders and others better understand the possible uses of environmentally friendly switchgrass to produce electricity. When blended with coal to use as a fuel, switchgrass helps reduce emissions by 10 percent or more.
