To help the nation use more domestic fuels and renewable energy technologies and increase our energy security, the Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) in the U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, assists government agencies in developing biomass energy projects. As part of that assistance, FEMP has prepared this Federal Technology Alert on biomass cofiring technologies. This publication was prepared to help federal energy and facility managers make informed decisions about using biomass cofiring in existing coal-fired boilers at their facilities. It is also helpful to other facilities that operate municipal and industrial boilers.
This course is intended for engineers, state and federal regulators, and energy professionals. It provides information on types of biomass available and criteria used to co-fire in coal fired boilers. Along with energy impacts, other implementation factors are presented using facility studies and case examples.
The student is expected to read and review the material contained in the US Department of Energy, Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, Federal Technology Alert, DOE/EE-0288, May 2004.
