*GreenPort Forum.* *Growing Community-Scale Energy in New England: What
Vermont's District Heating Efforts Could Mean for Cambridge. * With
speaker Ralph Meima, Board Co-Chair, Brattleboro Thermal Utility, Inc.
Brattleboro Thermal Utility's mission is to create a community energy
system for the Town of Brattleboro, Vermont generating both electricity
and thermal energy, using biomass as a fuel, for the benefit of multiple
stakeholders and the town as a whole. (Please note that fuel sources can
vary - biomass is not a requirement for district heating.) Their
long-term aim is to eliminate Brattleboro's dependency on fossil fuels
for heating, and obtain most of its electricity from renewable local
sources. District energy could have direct applications in Cambridge, as
the most efficient means of delivering heat and energy to our homes.
