Mr. Gent's presentation will dicuss the economic and environmental benefits of utilizing locally generated, clean, urban waste wood as an alternative to natural gas and oil as a heating fuel. He will also discuss the technical aspects of the plant design and provide an overview of project construction. Additionally, Mr. Gent will discuss the Seattle Steam 2020 Strategic Vision, a slate of projects Seattle Steam plans to implement through partnerships with local, state, and federal entities to maximize Seattle's use of renewable energy resources.
