AEA to install new biomass boilers for 2014

Alaska Energy Authority (AEA) has plans to install 14 biomass boiler projects in 2014.

Six of these projects, located in the Galena, Kake, Ketchikan, Haines, Minto and Yakutat regions, will use $20 million (€14.4 million) from the state's Renewable Energy Fund.

Biomass boilers, designed to heat buildings, can be fuelled with cord wood, wood chips or wood pellets and are in demand thanks to increasing heating oil prices.

The state has plans to increase bioenergy usage following new Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) proposals that would affect Alaska's boilers.
