The Summit will be the ideal place to get valuable insight into the emerging market and to interact with the people who will create the domestic industrial wood pellets market of the future.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) April 20, 2015
Infocast, the leading business intelligence and networking events producer in the pellets industry, has announced their 4th Industrial Wood Pellets for Coal Plant Co-Firing/Conversion Summit which will be held June 16-18, 2015 in Minneapolis, MN.
The EPA is expected to issue its final rule for the Clean Power Plan (CPP) by June 2015, with compliance implications beginning in 2020 at the latest. In addition, 38 states plus Washington, DC have Renewable Portfolio Standards (RPS) or variants specifying that electric utilities increase the integration of renewable or alternative energy sources. For Utilities and Independent Power Producers (IPPs) with older coal power plant assets, especially in RPS states, tough decisions are ahead. Do they close plants and incur lost revenues; or modify the plant to co-fire or run on industrial wood pellets and produce clean, dispatchable power?
Modifying old pulverized coal power plants to use industrial wood pellets for co-firing with coal or fully replacing coal can provide a ready-to-go solution for compliance with state RPSs, delivering low carbon and low cost electricity that will also satisfy compliance. Infocast’s 4th Industrial Wood Pellets for Coal Plant Co-Firing/Conversion Summit will be the ideal place to get valuable insight into the emerging market and to interact with the people who will create the domestic industrial wood pellets market of the future.
Attendees will have the opportunity to connect with government decision-makers, Utilities and Independent Power Producers (IPPs) with coal plant assets, operators of successful co-firing operations and conversions from pulverized coal to pulverized pellets, U.S. and Canadian white and black pellet producers, suppliers of sustainable wood fiber to pellet manufacturers and other supply chain players to share their ideas and perspectives on how best to best work together to create a supply chain that can meet the needs of the emerging market.
