Biomass Week, transforming the energy sector in the North: registration opens
January 9, 2023
By Wood Pellet Association of Canada
As a leader in fighting climate change in the North, the Arctic Energy Alliance (AEA) works with communities and businesses to accelerate the use of biomass and help realize a clean energy future. Every year, AEA’s annual virtual conference helps northerners learn more about biomass heating technologies and how to maximize their use.
“In the last few years, increased energy prices and global concern about climate change have made energy a top priority for everyone,” says Mark Heyck, executive director, Arctic Energy Alliance. “The advancement of renewable energy alternatives to replace fossil fuel generated energy is key in our fight against climate change.”
This year, Biomass Week will be held in partnership with the Wood Pellet Association of Canada (WPAC) and with media partner Canadian Biomass magazine, from Jan. 30 to Feb. 3, 2023, covering important issues that affect homeowners, developers, industrial operators, policy makers and producers.
Each day of Biomass Week, a lineup of experts and thought leaders will share their trained perspectives from 8:45 to 11:30 a.m. MST on key topics including:
- Northwest Territories biomass projects
- Environmental benefits/bioheat/carbon tax implications
- Installing a pellet boiler in new residential construction
- Funding and rebate programs
- Case studies
- New technologies
- District heating

“Supporting stronger communities and economies, the wood pellet sector can make real change by reducing energy poverty in remote and Indigenous communities while supporting our shared commitment to making the world a better place today and for future generations,” says Gordon Murray, executive director, WPAC.
Don’t miss this opportunity to be a part of Biomass Week and the move toward a greener future that foresees more use of biomass as a renewable energy that is both affordable and efficient.
Registration is free and participants can register for all or part of the conference.
