    Exciting New Conference Program,
    Best Concentration of Biomass Thermal
    Suppliers in One Expo Hall

    From April 25-27, 2017, the Northeast Biomass Heating Conference & Expo (NEBHX) will draw hundreds of industry professionals and exhibitors from the U.S. and Canada to Burlington, VT to attend North America's leading biomass thermal energy event.

    The Conference offers tracks that appeal to key audiences, such as: 

    • Project Developers and ESCOs
    • Facility Managers, Engineers, and Architects
    • Fuel Manufacturers, Equipment Manufacturers, and Supply Chain
    • Policy Influencers and Implementers including NGOs, state/federal agency and legislative staff
    • Marketing and Business Development Professionals
    The technical and project development track will offer insight and debate on current and emerging fuel and equipment technologies. 

    The policy track will provide a roundup of state, federal, and international biomass policies and a look at the policy innovations taking shape in the Northeast and other regions.

    The business development track will provide information on selling biomass thermal energy to customers, financing projects, and conducting feasibility studies.

    The Expo is the ideal place for engineers, architects, builders, and facility managers to see the opportunities for biomass thermal heating in their facilities, and communicate one-on-one with manufacturers and providers to see what technology best fits their needs.

    A bus tour and educational workshops, some with continuing education credit opportunities, are scheduled for April 25. This will be followed by an evening sneak peek of the expo hall before the official opening on April 26.
