Designing For Wood Heat Training to be held

November 14 at Goddard College

 Renewable Energy Vermont, Vermont’s Forest, Parks & Recreation, and Efficiency Vermont invite architects, builders, and facility managers to attend a special workshop training Designing for Wood Heat on Wednesday, November 14th from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Goddard College in Plainfield, Vermont.

Participants will learn about modern wood heat and the many efficient and affordable options available for buildings of all sizes.  No longer your grandfather’s old stove, modern automated wood heat offers convenient, clean, reliable, and local residential, commercial, and institutional building heating without any of the baggage of oil. Heating with wood moves us away from fossil fuels, lowers our carbon footprint, retains wealth locally, and helps maintain healthy forest landscapes. In this course, we’ll give an overview of wood heat applications and their benefits.  The course will be offered in two tracks so attendees can focus on their specialties; a) residential and small commercial, and b) commercial and institutional. Participants may receive 4.5 AIA credits.  Click hereto sign up or for more information.

When: Wednesday, November 14th at 8:00 am – 12:30 pm

Where: Goddard College – 123 Pitkin Road, Plainfield, VT

A ribbon cutting and tour of Goddard College’s new woodchip district heating plant will commence at 12:30 p.m. followed by the release of a new roadmap report on expanding advanced wood heating by Renewable Energy Vermont and the Biomass Energy Resource Center.
