Alaska Wood Energy Conference 2017
Tuesday April 11th 8 am to 5:00 pm and Wednesday April 12th 8 am to 3:00 pm.
This will be the fourth Alaska Wood Energy Conference and we are pleased to be returning to Ketchikan. Community leaders, agency representatives, scientists and individuals from around the state and region will gather to share experiences, resources and knowledge of Alaska’s growing utilization of woody biomass as an alternative energy resource in our State. Some sessions will qualify for Society of American Foresters Continuing Education Credits. The conference typically draws 150 participants. Registration is available online.
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.
