Western Meeting - Industrial Energy Efficiency and CHP

Nationwide Boiler just received this event notice from the DOE.  This meeting is focused on general discussions from leader sin the west relating to the development of greater industrial energy efficiency and combined heat and power.  Additional details and sign up information provided below.

Western Dialogue on Industrial Energy Efficiency and Combined Heat & Power

Time is running out. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to hear from leaders in the western region – REGISTER TODAY!

The Advanced Manufacturing Office is pleased to announce the fourth and final, in a series, of regional dialogue meetings scheduled for October 29, 2013 in Salt Lake City, Utah .  The Western Regional Dialogue on Industrial Energy Efficiency and Combined Heat & Power (CHP) is being held in support of the August 2012 Executive Order signed by President Obama. These one-day dialogue meetings focus on developing and implementing state best practice policies and investment models to address the multiple barriers that inhibit greater investment in energy efficiency and CHP. This meeting, which focuses on the West, will be held in Salt Lake City, Utah, on October 29, 2013. It will include an optional tour of the University of Utah’s CHP system. The meeting will feature Bill Ritter, Director of the Center for the Clean Energy Economy at Colorado State University and former governor of the State of Colorado, as the keynote speaker. Prior Regional Dialogue meetings in support of the Executive Order include Columbus Ohio, June 2012, Little Rock, AR, January 2013 and Baltimore, MD, March 2013.

Energy Department to Provide Technical Assistance to Facilities Impacted by EPA Boiler Rule

On December 20, 2012, the EPA finalized the Boiler MACT, a specific set of adjustments to existing Clean Air Act standards, for boilers and certain solid waste incinerators. These adjustments set standards to cut emissions of hazardous air pollutants, such as mercury, dioxin, and lead, from large boilers in a range of industrial facilities and institutions.

The DOE will offer technical assistance to affected sites currently burning coal or oil, highlighting strategies such as natural gas combined heat and power (CHP), and more efficient boilers, to cut harmful pollution and reduce operational costs. DOE will also provide site-specific technical and cost information to the major source facilities currently burning coal or oil through its regional Clean Energy Application Centers (CEACs).

The CEACs will visit these facilities to discuss strategies for compliance, including CHP, as well as provide information on potential funding and financing opportunities available for CHP, controls, boilers and energy efficiency assessments. Facilities that make use of this technical assistance can potentially develop strategies to comply with the regulations while adding to their bottom line.

Contact Nationwide Boiler today to discuss how we can help you come up with a solution that will cut emissions in your facility. Call: 1-800-227-1966.

Information on financial incentives available at the local, state, utility and federal levels to assist facilities with the costs of investing in CHP, boiler tune-ups, controls and/or energy efficiency assessments is available at:
