AutoPellet Air Furnace

28 | 01 | 2016

The MESys AutoPellet Air is the world‘s fi nest fully-automated wood pellet furnace. The AutoPellet Air is a standalone system and is designed to meet the heat demands of households and many commercial and municipal buildings.

The AutoPellet Air is controlled by an easy to operate fully integrated Room Temperature Sensor (RTS). The RTS allows for modulation of both the air fl ow throughout your home and the burner output for maximum comfort and effi ciency.

Discussion paper : Barriers to Biomass Energy Installations in the NWT

28 | 01 | 2016

Since 2006, the NWT has been moving away from the use of oil-fired heating systems by installing wood pellet heating, which is suitable for residential, commercial and institutional buildings. Wood pellet supply is now available in at least fourteen (14) of the NWT’s thirty-three (33) communities. Total wood pellet consumption is currently estimated at about 15,000 tonnes per year (5% of total NWT space heating demand) and is projected to reach 50,000 TPY by 2022. The GNWT has played a leadership role in promoting and supporting wood pellet market developments through its conversion of numerous GNWT facilities to wood pellet heating and steady implementation of the NWT Biomass Energy Strategy, now in its second edition (2012 – 2015).

Benefiting from Carbon Financing Now - Opportunities for the NWT Bioenergy Sector

28 | 01 | 2016

For the past decade, carbon markets have been a key driver of channeling investment to projects that reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The emission reductions associated with these projects are used to generate financial assets (e.g. emission offset credits) that are tradeable in carbon markets that have emerged at regional and national levels. In addition to providing an additional source of revenue for organizations, the sale of offset credits can help organizations meet the incremental costs of ‘greening’ investments. The World Bank reports that in 2014 the cumulative value of the global trade in carbon credits outside of the UNFCCC was US $395 million. Significant investment have been mobilized through carbon financing, especially from the private sector, as offset credits can be used to meet climate commitments while simultaneously contributing to low-emissions economic development. As more jurisdictions establish carbon pricing to achieve their climate-related objectives, carbon finance is expected to remain a key tool to foster low-carbon economic development. This workshop will provide an overview of the general principles of carbon financing and provide guidance on the specific characteristics of Bioenergy projects. In addition, different options for a diverse range of proponents in different jurisdictions will be discussed.
