Renewable Thermal Technologies in the Massachusetts APS
January 24, 2018
1:00pm — 2:00pm ET
In response to 2014 legislation, the Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources (DOER) developed and is implementing rules and regulations that will enable renewable thermal technologies to participate in the state’s Alternative Portfolio Standard (APS). Qualifying facilities include those that generate “useful thermal energy using sunlight, biomass, bio-gas, liquid bio-fuel or naturally occurring temperature differences in ground, air or water.” Samantha Meserve, Renewable Thermal Program Coordinator at DOER, will describe how the program will work, including how generators will qualify and how thermal output will be converted into Alternative Energy Certificates (AECs). She will explain the treatment of different technologies and different size systems. There will be time for audience questions and comments.
