Globally, using bioenergy from locally produced forest and agricultural biomass has been at the forefront of decreasing the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in rural communities– from space heating in rural households and buildings to commercial and industrial operations such as grain drying and food and animal production. This has largely been accomplished through the adoption of biomass burners/boilers. Although the capital cost, efficiency and utilization rate of bioenergy technologies are usually considered the key factors for the technical and economic viability of bioenergy projects in rural communities, there are other enabling factors that contribute to the successful development and deployment of bioenergy projects over their lifetimes such as the supply security of affordable biomass with consistent quality, biomass pricing, incentives and policy supports, air emissions regulations, annual energy demand, availability of other alternative energy sources, etc.
For this webinar, Biomass Canada Cluster and the AgroBioHeat Project have invited panel members with the demonstrated experience in bioenergy project management to discuss how to evaluate, build and maintain a “bioenergy project” in a systematic approach over its expected lifetime by identifying the enabling factors and their contribution to the success of bioenergy projects in rural communities.

The AgroBioHeat Project aims to promote modern, cost-effective and low-emission heating solutions using agricultural biomass for rural Europe. The project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under Grant Agreement No 818369.
About BioMass Canada Cluster (BMC)
BMC’s mandate is to mobilize Canada’s agricultural biomass resources for bioenergy and bioproducts production by de-risking and commoditizing agricultural biomass in all regions of Canada, while mitigating and adapting to a changing climate. BMC is led by the BioFuelNet Canada Network and funded in part by the Government of Canada under the Canadian Agricultural Partnership’s AgriScience Program, a federal, provincial, territorial initiative, as well as industry partners.
