2013 Virginia Biomass Plenary Session

Virginia Energy and Sustainability Conference Biomass Plenary FINAL

Charlotte Courthouse Business Plan

Public Policy Virginia, with funding from the Tobacco Indemnification and Community Revitalization Commission identified the town of Charlotte Courthouse, with 20 public building, including the middle and high school and county jail, as a potential location for distributed, combined heat and power using biomass feedstocks. The feasibility study examined two scenarios, Combined heat/cooling and power with Net Metering, and a Combined heat/cooling and power with Export to the Grid. The net metering scenario appears to be very viable, paying for itself in 12 years will providing stable energy prices and significant long-term savings for the county.

Medfit Nautilus Report

The New River Highlands RC&D, in partnership with Public Policy Virginia and funding from the Tobacco Indemnification and Community Revitalization Commission identified the manufacturing campus of Medfit Nautilus, in Independence, Va as a potential location for distributed, combined heat and power using biomass feedstocks. This project would offset would yield over $350,000 in fuel cost savings a year with a return on investment estimated to be about six years.

Tobacco Indemnification Commission Project Screening Report 

 Public Policy Virginia and the New River Highlands RC&D, with funding from the Tobacco Indemnification and Community Revitalization Commission, hired and worked with Langseth Engineering, a biomass energy consultant, to screen over 40 locations in Southside and Southwest Virginia. To facilitate the process an Excel spreadsheet-based screening tool was developed that uses historic energy data, building parameters and fuel costs to estimate the fuel cost savings and payback period of converting to a biomass fuel. The final screening report details the output for 19 locations in Southside and Southwest VA.
