Hydronic System Design for High-Efficiency Biomass Boilers Wednesday April 12, 1:00 pm - 9:00 pm (dinner included)

John “Siggy” Siegenthaler will be returning to Alaska to offer his 8 hour class - How Hydronic Systems Supplied from Biomass Boilers Should Be Designed.  Siggy has worked with New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA)  to provide training for their Renewable Heat NY program.  To date they have trained over 150 heating professionals.  He has also been involved with plans review and “forensics” involving biomass boiler systems that have not performed as expected. If this workshop does not meet minimum enrollment numbers, it will not be held. Workshop information and registration here.
