Apr. 28, 2010, Kingston, ON – The
third annual Conference on Biomass for Energy – The Great Lakes Bio-Region:
Market Opportunities and Carbon Pricing – is set for May 30-31, 2010, at Ban
Righ Hall, Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario. Demands
for low-carbon sources of energy mean that governments are crafting policy and
committing funds to biomass and businesses are making decisions and allocating
their resources. The biomass industry is changing as quickly as it grows. It therefore remains critical to share information and to highlight best
practices, challenges, and successes.

Following
an evening of information and networking, Mr. Colin Andersen of the Ontario
Power Authority will provide a keynote address to begin a full day of panels.

Speakers
will discuss:

  • The current
    financial context for the biomass industry;
  • Technologies and
    successes on both the biomass supply side and the biomass-to-energy
    conversion side;
  • The policy and
    business context within which demand will grow, including the U.S. Clean Energy and
    Security Act
    and the Ontario Green Energy and Green Economy Act;
  • The emerging
    structures for pricing carbon.

Again
this year, panel chairs and speakers will be drawn from government, industry, and
academia. Organizers anticipate more than 200 delegates. Register early to reserve your space at www.queensu.ca/qieep or email Lisa Doulas ldoulas@cogeco.ca for more
information.
