Biomass Ready App

Biomass Ready is a quick and easy process to help teams design new community buildings that can better adapt to an uncertain energy future.

Today the economics of biomass may not be favorable, but your community will own and operate your new building for decades, perhaps even a century. Over the lifetime of your building, your community may decide to install a biomass boiler system. Will your building be ready?

Biomass Ready will help you avoid inadvertently creating barriers that make adding biomass in the future prohibitively expensive. If you can add a biomass system to your building without extensive deconstruction or demolition, your building is Biomass Ready!

And Biomass Ready is simple enough that you can include it in your RFP (Requst of Proposals) process – encouraging your bidders to compete on designing for future energy flexibility!
