  • Coal contracts can be typically split into two broad categories, spot contracts (single shipments) and term contracts (multiple shipments). Term contracts can span any period, but in China in 2014, the National Development and Reform Commission announced a desire for coal buyers to negotiate long-term contracts with suppliers. Security of supply of fuel and limiting exposure to shorter-term volatility in prices and fuel supplies are clearly a strategic aim of some Asian economies. Such approaches to coal procurement is used across the world to varying degrees depending on the particular circumstances of the power generators and the markets in which they operate. This webinar provides an overview of a recent publication by the IEA CCC regarding coal procurement and contractual needs, and describes some of the aspects associated with the long-term nature of some coal contracts. It provides an introduction to some of the fundamentals of coal contracts and buying to those unfamiliar with fuel procurement, as well as a review of some regions which have been active in long term coal procurement in recent years.

  • The latest government consultation on energy efficiency taxes is now open: Treasury, BIS (Department for Business Innovation & Skills) and DECC (Department of Energy & Climate Change) are working together to consult on and review the existing energy efficiency tax framework, which could streamline taxes and reduce the administrative burden on businesses.

    The government plans – ‘Reforming the business energy efficiency tax landscape’ – is aiming to simplify energy tax and reporting schemes, and improve the effectiveness of policy in realising cost-effective energy and carbon savings. The proposals on the table are:

    Scrapping the CRC and creating one CCL-type consumption tax for businesses

    Creating one single reporting framework, bringing together elements of the different schemes that businesses currently comply with into one ESOS-style scheme

    Potentially introducing new financial incentives to encourage businesses to invest in energy efficiency measures

    Between now and November 9th businesses are being invited to share their views and opinions on proposed changes to the business energy efficiency tax landscape to help shape its reform.

    What do the changes mean for businesses? Who will be the winners and the losers? How can businesses get involved?

    Join BIS and energy experts Inenco Group for a webinar on the changes proposed, the impact on business and why you should get involved.

    Amongst other things, you’ll gain:

    An improved understanding of the review

    An understanding on how the changes proposed will impact your business

    Advice on how to get involved

  • Global energy demand is rising primarily as a result of population and economic growth in the emerging economies. Meeting this growing demand places increasing stress on limited fresh water resources as electricity production uses large amounts of water. This has repercussions for other water consumers in the agricultural, industrial and domestic sectors. Climate change could exacerbate the situation. This webinar examines the availability of fresh water for power generation, in particular for coal-fired power plants. It shows where the water stressed areas are in the world today and the demand for power. Global water and energy demand are discussed, and the water requirements of different power generation technologies. Some technologies that use less water, for example, dry-cooled power plants, operate at a lower efficiency. Finally, water availability and management in China and the USA, with reference to their energy production and policies are compared.
  • In this session, we’ll be joined by representatives from Hewlett-Packard (HP), IKEA, and Owens Corning to discuss their organizations’ commitment to renewable and clean energy technologies.

Join us on Oct 8 at 2pm EDT.
  • According the US Energy Information Administration, shale gas will provide half of the United States’ domestic gas by 2035. Shale gas is also well developed in Canada and being developed in South America and China. The economic benefits of shale are likely to cause other countries to look at this energy source. But shale gas is extracted by hydraulic fracturing which frees the gas from the tight shale and is different in scale and technique from more traditional ways of extracting oil and gas. What can local people expect from these sorts of operations and what do local planners, environmental engineers and health professionals need to know?

    In this webinar, Mike Stephenson will consider five important issues: noise and visual impact, truck traffic, air quality, groundwater contamination and induced earthquakes.

  • Most pulverised coal combustion (PCC) plants employ single-reheat cycles. However, double-reheat cycles can significantly improve the electrical efficiency of PCC plants. Surprisingly, no double-reheat units have been commissioned since the 1990s. However, with rising primary energy costs, more stringent emission limits and advances in thermal power engineering, double-reheat cycles are being considered to minimise the cost of electricity, reduce emissions and prolong valuable coal supplies, especially in China. This webinar reviews, analyses and assesses the application and development prospects of coal-fired double-reheat units.
  • New tools have dramatically enhanced the ability of data center operators to base important data center decisions about capacity planning and operational performance on actual data and actionable insights derived from that information. By combining modeling technologies to effectively calibrate the data center during the commissioning process and then using these benchmarks in modeling prospective configuration scenarios, data center operators can optimize the efficiency of their facilities prior to the movement or addition of a single rack. In this presentation, Jose Ruiz will share a real world case study that illustrates how predictive analytics can lead to smarter capacity planning and more effective operational decisions.
  • Join David Cuthbertson, Data Center Planning, Infrastructure configuration and Documentation Specialist - as he explores how organisations can better manage their Software-Defined Data Centers.
  • Smart grid has emerged as a fast-growing area in the past five years. However, it is not one big market; it is an amalgamation of different sectors, technologies, products, and components. Installation of smart meters is considered the first step toward smart grid implementation. The smart meter rollout in Europe is well under way, boosted by the European Union legislation to achieve 80 percent coverage by 2020. However, there are other growth areas, beyond smart meters, that are interesting for U.S. companies to invest into.

    For example, the U.S. Commercial Service, part of the U.S. Department of Commerce, helps U.S. companies expand their exports to overseas markets. Around the world, 1,400 Commercial Service officers promote U.S. business interests abroad. In this briefing find out what the company can do to support export objectives in the smart grid space.

    This analyst briefing also will highlight and discuss the opportunities that exist for the US companies within the European smart grid market, including a special offer available to those interested in European Utility Week, the largest and most comprehensive Smart utility event in Europe. About 10,000 visitors and 450 solution providers will do business, network and share best practices in Vienna this year.
  • Recent developments in process waste recycling and biomass utilisation have driven the use of these so-called ‘low value fuels’ for energy generation on a stand-alone basis, and in combination with coal. One particular technology stands out as being particularly well suited to utilising these low value fuels, circulating fluidised bed combustion (CFBC). The upcoming webinar sets out examples of the range of low value fuels, their reserves and properties, with particular emphasis on coal-derived materials, the issues for CFB plant in utilising these fuels and selected examples of manufacturer and operator experience with purpose built, or modified CFB plant.
  • On a given day in January 2014, renewable energy generation, accounted for more than 105% of Denmark's power demand. This was more than what the existing network could handle, creating voltage and frequency management issues. As the proportion of renewable energy increases in a country's energy mix, it creates significant technical, regulatory and business challenges. Globally, utilities are spending nearly $25 billion in maintaining and modernizing their power grid infrastructure. With the need to integrate more renewable, this will only increase. Is there a risk of these increased investments becoming stranded assets for utilities?

    Key Takeaway from the presentation:

    1. Understand the challenges and consequences of integrating large amount of renewable into utilities
    2. Learn about the Increasing role of energy storage technologies in integrating renewable into utilities
    3. Case studies from early adopters like Germany and Denmark
    4. What are the best practices and key success factors for integration
    5. Role of disruptive technologies and policy makers

  • The nature of the issues facing prospective data center operators are rapidly evolving. For many years data center related decisions were largely tactical and reactive in nature. With the escalating demand for the immediate delivery of information and content, coupled with the emergence of the substantial data processing requirements of innovations such as the Internet of Things, data center decisions must be made under an entirely new paradigm. In this presentation, Chris Curtis will discuss how the changing requirements for data centers necessitate that operators make their decisions within a larger strategic context to ensure that they are capable of addressing a company’s evolving needs for a decade or longer.

  • The output and efficiency of a coal-fired power station unit fitted with CO2 capture equipment will be significantly lower than that of a similar plant without capture because some of the energy produced by burning the fuel will be needed to operate the added systems. Incorporating an aqueous amine-based CO2 scrubbing system in a simple arrangement could decrease the efficiency by as much as 30% of value. However, work at various research institutes and universities shows that the decrease in performance could be reduced by improved heat integration and other techniques. The webinar reviews these studies.
