Document Title
Development and Demonstration of an Innovative Micro-scale Biomass Gasifier Combined Cooling, Heating, and Power System - Revised
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Received

Document Description
The Recipient will develop a highly usable, bankable, and cost-effective micro-scale combined cooling, heating and power (CCHP) system integrated with and powered by a biomass gasification waste-to-energy system, the Power Pallet. The Power Pallet CCHP system will be able to integrate its electrical, heating, and cooling outputs with light industrial and commercial building applications, avoiding a substantial amount of natural gas and electricity usage. The objective of the pilot project is to demonstrate a replicable, scalable model for use in the commercial and light industrial sectors, which are highly appropriate for, but underserved by combined heat and power and CCHP technology.

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Cal. Code regs., tit 14, S15301
Reasons for Exemption
The Energy commission made CEQA findings pertaining to this project when the project was originally approved by the Commission on 2/15/17. The Energy Commission found that the project is exempt because it involves installation of a micro-scale combined cooling, heating and power (CCHP) system integrated with and powered by a biomass gasification waste-to-energy system in an existing commercial facility. NOTE: See NOE for full details.
