About the event
Global commodity pressures have pushed natural gas prices through the roof this winter, which has New Hampshire residents looking for alternatives. Biomass energy is a local source of renewable heat, which when burned in a modern, clean-burning heating appliance can reduce carbon emissions when compared to fuel oil or natural gas. But unique among the renewable heating options, local, sustainably-harvested biomass can also have numerous economic and environmental co-benefits that come with supporting the forest products industry.
On this webinar, we'll check in with New Hampshire's biomass industry, and see how this latest price spike is affecting their business and thinking for the long-term. We'll also check in with the state's largest natural gas distributor and hear from them about how they see biomass figuring into their long-term plans for a decarbonized future.
