UK announces plans for next CfD auction In November, the U.K. Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy released details of the next Contracts for Difference (CfD) auction, noting companies will complete for ÂŁ290 million ($355,83 million) worth of contracts. The application process for the next CfD allocation round is set to open in April and is open to offshore wind, advanced conversion technologies, anaerobic digestion (AD) projects of greater than 5 MW, dedicated biomass with combined-heat-

and-power, and wave, tidal, stream and geothermal projects that begin operations from 2021-’22 or 2022-’23. The auction is not open to wind, solar, or biomass conversion projects. According to the DBEIS, the CfD auction will result in enough renewable electricity to power approximately 1 million homes while reducing carbon emissions by approximately 2.5 million metric tons per year from 2021-’22 onward.

10 BIOMASS MAGAZINE | JANUARY 2017

The Northern Wood Power biomass unit at Eversource Energy’s Schiller Station in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, celebrated its 10th year of operations in late 2016. Northern Wood Power began operating in December 2006, permanently replacing a 50-MW, coal-burning boiler with one designed to burn wood chips and other clean wood byproducts. The bioenergy system has eliminated the need to burn more than 130,000 tons of coal annually. Over the past 10 years, repowering Schiller’s coal-burning boiler to burn wood has reduced carbon dioxide emissions by an estimated 3.5 million tons. Over the same time period, more than 3.1 billion kWh of

renewable energy have been generated and the system has added more than $400 million to the regional economy. “In addition to ensuring a cleaner environment for our customers and all residents of New Hampshire and the region, Northern Wood Power has had a very positive impact on the local economy,� said Bill Smagula, vice president of generation at Eversource. “Since opening, Northern Wood Power has accepted more than 5 million tons of locally sourced wood fuel, at a value of more than $157 million dollars. The project’s success is a tribute to all the great effort put forth by our employees and the work of our local foresters.�
