BTEC Publishes Educational Materials on Biomass Thermal, Announces Continuation of Webinar Series
The complete series of biomass-themed webinars, factsheets, podcast interviews, and comprehensive presentation are now available online
Washington, DC - The Biomass Thermal Energy Council (BTEC) today announced the availability of an array of educational materials funded in part by a grant from the U.S. Forest Service's Wood Education and Resource Center (WERC). Over 12 months, BTEC produced a series of seven webinars, five fact sheets, ten podcasts, and a comprehensive slide show presentation on key issues impacting the biomass thermal industry.
All materials are publically available free of charge on the BTEC website at www.biomassthermal.org/resource.
Building on the progress of the original grant project, BTEC secured an extension to continue the popular webinar series. In the next several months, BTEC will host seven additional webinars. The first topic of the series is "Public Perception of Biomass Thermal," scheduled for August 30, 2011, 1PM ET. Registration is available at www.biomassthermal.org/resource/webinars.asp. Future webinars include regional perspectives, advanced technologies, future market developments, and agricultural and woody biomass commonalities and differences.
"The WERC grant helped produce a suite of valuable educational materials, educating thousands of people on the opportunities of biomass heating and CHP," said BTEC's acting Executive Director, Joseph Seymour. "We are grateful to WERC for supporting our efforts, and we look forward to engaging more partners during the next phase of our successful webinar series."
