Here's a progress report on the UBC gasifier CHP project. Tom

Advanced Biomass Gasification for Heat and Power Demonstration Project 

Project Lead: John Gorjup, OERD, NRCan - Ottawa
Lead Proponent: University of British Columbia
Initial CEF Contribution: $ 8 M
Add-on Project: $ 2 M
Project Total:$ 28 M
Strategic Area: Bioenergy
Location: UBC Point Grey Campus, Vancouver, British Columbia


University of British Columbia (UBC) is committed to leadership in
sustainability, which was well demonstrated by meeting its Kyoto targets for
GHG reduction five years early. In order to continue leadership in this
area, UBC is committed to take advantage of its unique capacity for research
and problem solving to embrace and deploy leading-edge clean energy
technologies and concepts.

UBC is working on this project with Nexterra and GE Energy, along with GE
subsidiary Jenbacher Ltd., one of the world's leading manufacturers of
gas-fueled reciprocating engines, packaged generator sets and cogeneration
units for power generation.

Add-on Project: To add Engine Heat Recovery (EHR), Electro Chemical Energy
Storage (ECES) and Supervisory Management and Control to the CHP system to
validate a CHP system in combination with Energy storage to improve system
efficiency, reduce implementation costs and provide knowledge on systems of
this type.
