New Energy Farms Addresses Energy Crops from Utilities’ Perspective at Biomass Trade & Power Americas

January 17, 2011

In the past month, both the US and UK Governments announced new schemes designed to help boost the renewable energy markets in their respective countries. For the US, the final revised rules for the Biomass Crop Assistance Program (BCAP) have been rolled out, while the UK released details for the highly-anticipated Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI). Both governments hope to reduce Green House Gas (GHG) emissions through replacement of fossil fuels and ensure more fuel security by encouraging production and use of dedicated energy crops.

Mr. Dean Tiessen, President of leading producer and supplier of biomass energy crops company New Energy Farms will join a panel of senior industry executives at the Biomass Trade & Power Americas in Atlanta on 23-25 February 2011, to address the development of energy crops – from crop to energy products, for domestic use & exports. Specifically, Mr. Tiessen will provide much-sought utilities’ perspective on this emerging biomass for energy applications.

US Sees Surge in New Biomass Projects – more details at Biomass Trade & Power Americas

December 15, 2010

Several states across America have seen a boom in new biomass-related projects:

“Nova Scotia Power and NewPage Port Hawkesbury are proceeding with the 60-megawatt biomass co-generation facility recently approved by the Nova Scotia Utility” (PR NewsWire)

“The province and St. Mary’s Paper have reached a ten year, 30 megawatt Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) that will enable the company to build a $175 million biomass fuelled co-generation plant, creating 555 jobs announced David Orazietti, MPP.” (

“Two biomass power conversion projects in Wisconsin are progressing, one already operating and the other just beginning its transformation.” (Biomass Magazine)

Government initiatives such as the revised BCAP are encouraging growth in plants converting to biomass. However, to benefit from investment opportunities in renewable energy, one has to consider 2 key concerns – funding options and logistical issues.

These issues will set the tone for the first Biomass Trade & Power Americas Summit in Atlanta on 23-25 February 2011. The summit also analyses how the global landscape of biomass trade is set to evolve as the US takes on a more prominent role in biomass generation.

US Department of Agriculture Publishes Final Rule for Biomass Crop Assistance Program (BCAP)

November 7, 2010

The Biomass Crop Assistance Program (BCAP), which was first launched by the US Department of Agriculture as a pilot national biomass incentive program in 2008, has since been published with additional rules and reactivated this month. Under the finalized rules, the US government will resume funding for up to 75% of producers’ costs in the establishing of a wide variety of biofuels. Materials that qualify for the scheme range from wood chips and crop residues to switchgrass, woody plants, algae and animal and food waste.

Through the implementation of the revised program, the US hopes to promote production of fuel from renewable sources and meet renewable energy demands. With the government’s boosted support for biofuels, questions below remain:

  • Will this majorly change the role of the US as a key biomass supplier to Europe and the World?
  • Are existing and future market demands expected to be sufficient to absorb the increased influx of supply?

The Biomass Trade & Power Americas to be held in Atlanta on 25-26 February 2011 invites all top stakeholders to participate and critically analyze the impact on global trading. The program agenda for the conference is soon to be finalized and updated shortly. Those with enquiries on early registration or for more program details can email Reema Patnaik at
