Harnessing the Power of Biomass Energy in the Midwest
The report, “Harnessing the Power of Biomass Residuals: Opportunities and Challenges for Midwestern Renewable Energy,” examines opportunities and the key challenges limiting the current capacity of alternative biomass energy technologies, including financial constraints, market penetration barriers, and behavioral routines. It concludes with a series of recommendations that offer a framework for making better use of residuals in the region.
This half-day symposium will bring together business, civic, and government leaders from around the Midwest to discuss with Steve Brick, the report’s author, his research and findings.
The symposium will also feature panels of experts who will explore the relationship between renewable biomass energy and economic development, environmental conservation, waste management, energy security, and soil productivity, and examine the future of biomass energy policy at the state, regional, and national levels.
