BOSTON, MA — Last fall, the Department of Energy (DOE) Boston Regional Office sponsored two renewable energy and combined heat and power (CHP) workshops for federal energy managers in New England and New York. The workshops were a response to rapid developments in both on-site power technologies and related state and utility funding resources.

The goal of the Sturbridge, MA, and Albany, NY, workshops was to bring federal energy managers together with technology professionals and potential state and utility funding and technical assistance partners. The workshops covered renewable energy resources in the Northeast, lessons learned from recent solar and wind installations, and project financing options.

In an interactive session on wind and solar energy, Bill Moore, principal of Atlantic Renewable Energy Corp., and Richard Perez, research professor at State University of New York at Albany, Atmospheric Sciences Research Center, presented research on New England’s and New York’s significant potential for wind and solar-generated power.

The workshops included detailed presentations on funding programs, plus current and expected regional opportunities for purchasing green power and green certificates.

“Each state has its own funding guidelines and particular emphasis,” said Paul King of DOE’s Boston Regional Office. “It takes extra effort on the part of a regional energy manager who has facilities in several states to locate the best renewable energy projects. We got everyone in the same room and on the same page.”

For more information, contact King at 617-565-9712; paul.king@ee-doe.gov (e-mail).
