On January 22, BTEC submitted a proposal to the U.S. Forest Service Wood Innovation Grant. BTEC’s $250,000 proposal aims to reduce the barriers to wood energy adoption and utilization by building bridges and mainstreaming wood energy technologies in the engineering, HVAC and high-performance building sectors. BTEC’s proposal outlined a number of projects that would accomplish this goal, including:
- Build Acceptance in the Engineering, HVAC, and Building Community by working with ASHRAE, DOE’s Better Buildings Alliance, and the U.S. Green Building Council LEED Certification
- Implementation of a Biomass/CHP/District Heating Student Design Contest
- Produce Case Studies on Wood Energy Cooling, Process Heat, and District Heating
- Develop Regional Wood Energy Infrastructure in the South and West.
