Brookhaven National Laboratory – Adoption of New Wood Heater Technology and Integration with Other Renewables

The third workshop of the Wood Heater Design Challenge discusses the adoption of new wood heater technology and integration with other renewables, delves into barriers to adoption and how wood heaters could play a more long term role as a renewable energy option. What technologies are most likely to be incentivized? How can they interconnect with other renewables at the household level, or the community level? Where will wood heat be the most price competitive?

This 2-day workshop will include short technical presentations followed by breakout sessions that discuss specific topics related to wood heater designs. The breakout discussion topics include:

Day 1: In-Lab Measurement Methods

  • Session A – Adding automation to a wood heater Q&A
  • Session B – Impact evaluation: Quantifying health, energy & climate impacts for biomass heat deployment

Day 2: In-Field Measurement Methods

  • Session C – DOE/National Lab Q&A Tech Slam, 5th Design Challenge, and Future Events
  • Session D – Sustainable adoption: Integrating wood heaters into renewable energy portfolios


Apr 26 - 27 2022
