Wisconsin Wind Works hosted its first 'Insights on Energy: Business Development in New Energy Markets' on Wednesday July 25th at Lakeshore Technical College.
Hosted in partnership with Lakeshore Technical College (LTC) and New North, the event focused on a new energy market with potential opportunities for wind energy companies and suppliers: Biofuels.
The event, part of a future speaker series of events to be hosted by Wisconsin Wind Works, featured two speakers focused on the current market for biofuels in Wisconsin and the nation.
Baye's presentation highlight market trends and price points for biofuels feedstocks and technologies, while focusing on the development of public/private partnerships to successfully develop biofuels projects.
Welch offered 'lessons learned' from the Dane County digestor, as well as future best practices for newly planned digestor operations. Welch's experience supporting public and private cooperation to successfully develop the Dane County disgestor proved insightful for those interested in developing projects.
