Clean Power Development, LLC Urges Sustainable, Community-Centric Approach to Biomass Energy
Date:8/4/2010

BOSTON, Aug. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- A biomass energy approach that stresses multiple, smaller generation plants scaled to make use of local fuel supplies on a sustainable basis would make biomass projects more appealing to communities and more beneficial to local economies over the long haul, said Bill Gabler, Project Director of Clean Power Development, LLC, in remarks prepared for delivery today to an industry conference here.

"Communities want the jobs, and they want the power from biomass generation," noted Gabler. "But residents are justifiably worried about the impact on their quality of life. They see a potential threat to air quality, the water and local forests. And they worry about the noise and heavy truck traffic associated with large generation plants."

The answer, said Gabler, is an approach that Clean Power terms "distributed generation" – a network of smaller plants appropriately scaled to minimize environmental impact and to operate mostly on fuel available locally and harvested on a sustainable basis. Projects should whenever possible seek to maximize their efficiency by looking for opportunities to provide heat, steam or hot water for use in commercial activities, such as mills or greenhouses.

The "distributed generation" model creates more jobs per megawatt of capacity than a single large plant because there are multiple facilities spread among a region and a focus on local fuel sources, Gabler said. Moreover, smaller plants can more easily be designed to harmonize with a community's architectural character and surroundings.

"By integrating smaller biomass projects into the community -- instead of just plopping down a huge plant --we create a sustainable system, provide jobs, and sa
