BTEC Submits Wood Innovation Grant Proposal to USFS

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:

  1. 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
  2. Implementation of a Biomass/CHP/District Heating Student Design Contest
  3. Produce Case Studies on Wood Energy Cooling, Process Heat, and District Heating
  4. Develop Regional Wood Energy Infrastructure in the South and West.
