E3 has the experience to make your biomass project a success.

E3 has reviewed the development, construction, and operation of a variety of biomass-fueled projects including biomass projects combustion projects ranging in size from 6 MWs to 75 MW and wood pelletizing projects, among others. E3’s team of biomass experts understands what makes a project technically viable and financially feasible.

ReEnergy Black River Biomass Project, Ft. Drum, New York

Largest Renewable Energy Project in the History of the U.S. Army

E3 prepared an independent engineering review of this 60 MW wood-fired power plant located in Ft. Drum, New York. E3’s review was in support of a proposed refinancing of the plant, which underwent conversion from coal combustion technology to become a biomass plant. E3 reviewed the historical and projected performance, plant condition, long-term capital improvement plan and fuel supply plan and provided construction monitoring.  According to the Project’s sponsor, ReEnergy Black River produces approximately 422,000 net megawatt-hours of electricity each year — enough to supply the power needs of about 55,000 homes. Additionally, the facility provides 100 percent of Fort Drum’s electrical load and sells the remaining electrical output to the region’s grid.

Conifex Power Project, British Columbia

Retrofitting an existing plant

E3 provided independent engineering services for the 28 MW biomass-fired facility located in British Columbia. E3 conducted technical due diligence on the project’s proposed upgrades to an existing on-site biomass boiler and the addition of a condensing steam turbine and provided construction monitoring services.

Greenleaf Power Honey Lake Project
Larsen County, California

Due Diligence to Support Refinancing

E3 provided due diligence services in support of a proposed refinancing of the project.  The project is a 30 MW biomass-fired power generation facility located in Lassen County, California. The project consists primarily of one wood fired stoker boiler and one steam turbine generator. E3 reviewed the historical and projected performance, plant condition, long-term capital improvement plan and fuel supply plan.
