Dec. 4 Webinar: Best Practices in Wood and Pellet Stove Programs

The University of Maryland Extension Woodland Stewardship Education program will host a one-hour webinar on Thursday, December 4th from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. to provide an overview of the “best practices” in wood and pellet stove incentive programs across the United States. 
Sign up here.
As renewable energy programs grow around the country, more and more states are including incentives for wood or pellet boilers and stoves. Unlike other household appliances, such as refrigerators, furnaces or washing machines, wood heating equipment have no “Energy Star” labels for consumers to consult to make energy efficiency comparisons. Consequently, several states have devised a range of methods to determine the eligibility of cleaner and more efficient stoves and boilers.
This webinar will explore the features of these programs, and will use Maryland’s stove incentive program as an example of how one state met its goals for ensuring consumers purchase the most efficient appliances available. The speakers will identify what they see as emerging best practices in stove and boiler incentive programs as these initiatives become more mainstream.
This webinar features presentations from Jonathan Kays, University of Maryland Extension Natural Resource Extension Specialist; John Ackerly, President of the Alliance for Green Heat; and Emilee Van Norden, Clean Energy Program Manager of the Maryland Energy Administration.
The webinar is free and open to the public.  Sign up now to reserve a spot.

Dec. 4 Webinar: Very best Techniques in Wood and Pellet Stove Plans

The College of Maryland Extension Woodland Stewardship Schooling program will host a one-hour webinar on Thursday, December 4th from twelve:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. to offer an overview of the “best practices” in wooden and pellet stove incentive packages throughout the United States.&nbsp
Indicator up below.
As renewable power programs develop around the region, far more and much more states are such as incentives for wood or pellet boilers and stoves. In contrast to other household appliances, this kind of as refrigerators, furnaces or washing machines, wood heating gear have no “Energy Star” labels for shoppers to check with to make strength performance comparisons. As a result, many states have devised a range of techniques to determine the eligibility of cleaner and more productive stoves and boilers.
This webinar will discover the functions of these programs, and will use Maryland’s stove incentive program as an case in point of how one particular condition fulfilled its objectives for guaranteeing shoppers purchase the most productive appliances available. The speakers will determine what they see as emerging ideal methods in stove and boiler incentive packages as these initiatives become far more mainstream.
This webinar features displays from Jonathan Kays, College of Maryland Extension All-natural Useful resource Extension Specialist John Ackerly, President of the Alliance for Eco-friendly Heat and Emilee Van Norden, Clean Power Program Manager of the Maryland Energy Administration.

Innovation and the NSPS Webinar (Total Video clip)

On May nine, 2013, the Alliance for Eco-friendly Heat and the Biomass Thermal Vitality Council (BTEC) co-hosted a webinar with the EPA on how the new wood heater New Source Performance Requirements (NSPS), which may be promulgated as early as 2014, may encourage or discourage innovation in wooden and pellet stoves and boilers. The EPA’s Gil Wooden, Undertaking Lead of the NSPS, offered an explanation of the new wooden heater NSPS and answered attendee concerns that experienced been asked for in advance.

This webinar was&nbsp held in the guide up to the Wooden Stove Layout Challenge, a countrywide competitiveness to promote extremely clean, effective, innovative and affordable cordwood technological innovation. The total recording is under and the slides are available for viewing below.

Introduction: :00 – seven:54.
Presentation by Gil Wood: seven:fifty four – forty six:33.&nbsp

Webinar Announcement

Innovation and the NSPS:

How can the EPA motivate innovative new systems?

1:00-two:00 PM ET
Thursday, May nine, 2013
EPA rules for biomass heating units frequently have addressed one particular established of difficulties, and inadvertently led to other people as technologies created. The EPA has stated that in the up coming wooden heater New Supply Functionality Standard (NSPS), it desires to “minimize potential loopholes.” How can the NSPS encourage and not discourage new technologies that might be cleaner and far more efficient, but have trouble with authorized check strategies? What lessons have we uncovered from the existing NSPS and EPA voluntary applications? Register for the May nine webinar to begin discussion &gt&gt

This webinar is being held in the guide up to the Wooden Stove Layout Problem, a countrywide competitors to advertise really thoroughly clean, successful, modern and cost-effective cordwood technological innovation.

Although there will be a Query and Answer session, inquiries are requested in advance and need to be submitted to info@forgreenheat.org by COB Monday, May six. This webinar is co-hosted by the Biomass Thermal Energy Council and the Alliance for Green Warmth.
