* Duke Energy biomass venture suspends operations

A Smart Decision!

“Adage, the joint venture of Duke Energy and Areva, has canceled plans for a biomass plant in Washington state and has suspended plans for any construction in the face of low demand for biomass energy.”

“This week, Adage decided to cancel a $250 million, 55-megawatt biomass plant in Shelton, Wash., it announced in August.”

The company still has a permit to build a 55-megawatt plant in Hamilton County, Fla. But DePonty says there are no plans to start construction. “We are in a holding pattern there, but the permit will expire in June,” he says. The company intends to let it lapse.”
