Adam Sherman has more than 17 years of experience in the biomass energy industry, and directed Biomass Energy Resource Center (BERC)’s technology and biomass fuel supply activities before joining VEIC in 2012. Adam’s work focusses on assessing energy project feasibility and on assessing, developing, and strengthening the biomass fuel supply chain. Adam has conducted dozens of feasibility studies for single-facility heating, campus CHP, and biomass district heating projects across North America. He has written many state- and regional-level biomass resource assessments, and has completed resource assessments for specific projects quantifying and characterizing the biomass resources and markets within various geographic areas. During his time at BERC, Adam conducted site visits to nearly 100 successful biomass energy systems throughout North America and Europe, and published multiple case studies and reports describing the systems and keys to successful installations at other facilities. Before joining BERC in 2004, Sherman was general manager at the Intervale Compost Products Company in Burlington, Vermont, where he increased the scale of that organization from a small recycling project into a well-established and successful composting business.
