June 10, 2010, Ottawa, ON ­– International and Canadian experts are meeting June 15-17
in Ottawa to talk about bioenergy business models and policies that work in
Canada.

On day
one, participants will hear from entrepreneurs and municipalities behind
Canada’s successfully operating, small- and large-scale bio-heat, combined heat
and power, pellet, and biofuel projects. David Johnson, chair of Revelstoke, British
Columbia’s Community Energy Corporation, will talk about that city’s district
heating scheme and how the city became one of the most sustainable in the
country. Doug Bradley, CanBio president, will break down the economics needed
to make biomass heat and power projects work. And Jane Todd of Ontario Power
Generation will spell out when and how many millions of tonnes of wood pellets
this power giant will need as it switches some of its coal plants to
biomass.

On day
two, political decision makers and bioenergy industry players will lead panel
discussions, presentations, and Q&A's examining the best policies in the
world for boosting renewable energy and local agricultural and forestry sectors
with biomass. Chris Reccia from the Biomass Energy Research Institute in Vermont
will talk about American policies, good and bad. JP Gladu of the Aboriginal
Strategies Group will speak on what First Nations need to move forward with
biomass development.

CanBio
will also launch a GoPellets initiative to support the local use of wood
pellets within Canada.
