2013 Forum on Anaerobic Digester Production of Energy: New Opportunities for Projects in Michigan
Date: November 26, 2013
Location: Okemos Conference Center, 2187 University Park Drive, Okemos, MI 48864
The Anaerobic Digester Energy forum will provide information about the latest resources and technologies regarding anaerobic digester-sourced energy projects in Michigan. The program will present the Michigan Waste Biomass Inventory to Support Renewable Energy and associated system modeling to project the cost and feasibility of anaerobic digester projects at agricultural operations, waste-water treatment facilities, and food production companies statewide, with special emphasis within Consumers Energy’s service territory.
Discussion topics will include the latest renewable energy policies, regulations, and economic incentives; screening and selecting potential projects; and new opportunities from Consumers Energy for power purchase agreements. These tools allow for estimating construction and interconnection costs, return on investment, and capturing both costs and benefits of developing a project at your location.
Mike Thomas, an SPDC Associate Professor will be speaking at the event, providing the forum overview.
The forum will take place on Tuesday, November 26, 2013 from 8am-5pm at the Okemos Conference Center in Okemos.
Registration is $50, which includes lunch, refreshments and parking. There are a limited number of “free passes” for students to attend on a first-come first-serve basis.
Registration is available online.
