renewable energy resources or commit to an additional 20 years of Vermont Yankee will determine the legacy we leave future Vermonters Local resources and the power Vermont purchases from regional hydroelectric facilities can meet all of our traditional electricity needs power100 of our transportation sector and still produce excess electricity Vermont Yankee should be closed in 2012 and we should invest in an energy future that will protect our environment and promote a strong locally based economy June 17 2009 Financing Community Scale Renewable Energy Projects pdf 127 kb A

  • Modern Wood Heating | Renewable Energy Vermont
    surrounding region Modern community scale biomass systems burn cleanly with virtually no visible emissions or odors and compared with modern residential scale wood and pellet stoves they have far fewer emissions of particulate matter PM an exhaust product of wood combustion known for its adverse effects on human respiratory health For example over the course of a winter season the heating plant of a 200 000 square foot wood heated school in a cold northern climate produces about the same amount of PM as five residential scale wood stoves Burning wood for energy has a positive impact in moderating global climate change Carbon dioxide CO2 buildup in the atmosphere is a significant cause of global climate change which is why biofuels are a great alternative source of energy Fossil fuel combustion takes carbon that was locked away underground as crude oil and gas and transfers it to the atmosphere as CO2 When wood is burned however it recycles carbon that was already in the natural carbon cycle Biomass Energy Resource Center What is woody biomass and where does it come from Woody biomass refers to trees and woody plants including limbs tops needles leaves and other woody parts grown in a forest woodland or rangeland environment that are the by products of forest management Wood pellets are one type of woody biomass that has gained national attention with rising fossil fuel prices According to the Pellet Fuels Institute there are currently about 800 000 homes in the United States using wood pellet stoves or furnaces for heating Wood pellets are locally available and serve as a cost effective heating fuel with several advantages over other types of biomass The majority of Vermonters may be familiar with another type of woody biomass called cord wood which is widely used to heat homes during our long cold winters Woody biomass fuel can come from various sources Wood pellets are made from wood waste materials that are condensed under heat and pressure whereas woodchips can come from sawmills that chip wood as a by product directly from harvesting operations in the woods or from clean community wood wastes such as chipped urban tree trimmings stumps and discarded Christmas trees In addition to these traditional sources chips are increasingly being produced from chipped low grade logs or pulpwood in dedicated chip yards and chip mills Biomass Energy Resource Center What kinds of facilities use biomass Facilities suitable for biomass systems include colleges universities hospitals public buildings hotels and motels commercial buildings greenhouses large scale agricultural operations manufacturing plants power plants schools and community district energy systems the latter being the use of a central heating plant to provide heat to multiple buildings using buried pipes to distribute the energy BERC s expertise is in community scale biomass systems in the 1 to 10 million Btu per hour output range Biomass Energy Resource Center How stable is the supply of woody biomass Will it always be available In the Northeast biomass as a by product
