Weekly highlights for 11/28/16
AEA hosted the annual face-to-face meeting of the Alaska Wood Energy Development Task Group. This collaboration of 18 Federal, State, Tribal, and NGO’s works to increase the use of woody biomass in heating systems throughout Alaska. The team reviewed progress to date, including the development of over 150 prefeasibility studies, and set priorities for 2017. In 2017 we will be conducting prefeasibility studies in approximately seven schools and will also be revisiting previous prefeasibility communities that have high potential for biomass heating projects. Work on educational case studies for Alaska’s 30+ operating biomass systems will continue.
