  • Greece’s financial crisis continues to have a major impact on all facets of the country’s economy. In 2015, the financial crisis continued unabated. When significant economic recovery does occur, the energy sector will have a major role to play. The country has a high energy import dependency, which is expensive ‒ reportedly, about ~US$ 20 billion/year. The overall diversification of the energy mix is rather limited. Greece’s main indigenous energy resource is poor quality lignite, used to generate a significant proportion of the country’s electricity. The state-owned energy company Public Power Corporation S.A. (PPC) is the largest lignite producer. More than 93% of Greece’s energy is provided by fossil fuels, (EU average is 75%). In 2014, a new government was elected and energy policy changed direction as earlier plans to privatise parts of the energy sector were curtailed. However, conditions demanded recently by EU and IMF creditors, mean that privatisation schemes may be back on the table. This is likely to encompass natural gas and electricity supply. There has been a renewed focus on the potential of the country’s lignite resources. In order to minimise the cost of imported energy and improve security of energy supply, the present government intends to increase their use, primarily for electricity generation. The webinar examines the situation prevailing in the Greek energy sector, and how this might change in the future. Existing and proposed clean coal-based activities are discussed. However, major uncertainties (in terms of scope and timescale) remain over many aspects of energy production ‒ the nature of, and rate of economic recovery will undoubtedly have major impacts.
  • ISO50001 and ISO14001 combined to make the perfect system. Hear from Northern Rail's Gareth Williams and Kyle Macneill as they take you through their experiences of the ISO standards.
  • Sustainability reporting has become an increasingly important issue as stakeholders seek transparency from the organizations they support. Throughout Europe, mandatory reporting programs such as non-financial reporting and article 8 of the EED have taken shape through EU directives and have become a part of standard operating procedure for impacted organizations. While primarily a voluntary activity (GRI, CDP, GRESB) in the United States, sustainability reporting continues to gain momentum and support.

    For this webinar, we’ll be joined by two leading, global organizations and will learn why they report, what programs they report to, and how they are turning reporting into action.

  • Almost all mines have waste streams from overburden through tailings to excess water and as the mine life develops these streams require storage or treatment. While some may have acid generation potential or heavy metals contamination much of the waste is inert and can be safely stored in stacks or dams that are stabilized and revegetated at the end of the mine life.

    Advances in technology are enabling changes to the way dams are managed, increasing the solid content of the tailings stream decreases the size of the storage, increases the water recovery, reducing risk and enabling simpler closure. Advances in filtration have made the stacking of tailings an alternative in arid regions or areas where a tailings dam may not be acceptable.

    The technical feasible solution with the lowest life of mine cost is typically influenced by the source material availability, geographic conditions, production rate and local legislations. Analyzing the available technologies to arrive at the best holistic solution requires a deep understanding of the available technologies combining process, geotechnical and strategic planning.

    This webinar introduces the technologies and services that Outotec has developed to respond to the evolving industry needs for safe and effective management of tailings and mine water.
  • L'acheteur énergie est aujourd'hui confronté à de multiples signaux et contraintes réglementaires, rendant complexe l'appréciation des tendances et l'anticipation de l'évolution des coûts.

  • 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.

  • The Minimum Energy Performance Standards (MEPS) will come in to force from 2018, but property firms must start taking action now to meet them in time. By April 2018 all rented properties in the non-domestic sector with an F & G rated building will need to be improved to be rented out - and from April 2023 all existing commercial lettings will also need to be improved.

    Are the rules for D & E rated properties going to change? What can businesses do now to get ready? What is the value opportunity for agents and tenants?

    Join energy property experts Inenco Group for a webinar on how the changes brought about through MEPS will enable energy efficiency and cost savings to be achieved.

  • Librarians will discuss metrics-related library services for the individual (grad student, faculty/researcher) to inform career development, publishing decisions, etc., and at the department level for the purpose of analysis and benchmarking.

  • 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
