  • 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
  • In this session we’ll examine how renewables and other clean technologies such as storage and fuel cells have shaken up the energy markets and how companies can join the rapidly growing “revolution.” We’ll look at current and evolving technologies and how companies are realizing significant financial savings, risk mitigation, and cost certainty through comprehensive renewable energy programs. We’ll also explore current savings opportunities available in various regions of the world. Join us at 2pm EDT on August 18.
  • 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 course will explain the principles, process and value of power performance verification. From turbine supply contract negotiation through completion of power performance verification, there are many opportunities to reduce the risk associated with wind turbine performance. Trends will be presented and guidance provided for what to expect at all stages including:

    - Contract negotiation
    - Site evaluation
    - Measurement system design
    - Data processing and interpretation – including case studies
    - Documentation of results

    On completion, delegates should understand the value of power performance verification, how the process works and how to minimize the risk. Specifically: how to set the stage during contract negotiation for a successful campaign; what factors most influence the wind speed measurement and how to design for the lowest uncertainty; how the results can be interpreted and leveraged.

  • Organisations across all sectors are dealing with a growing array of third party/vendor relationships. Even obscure supplier relationships can have significant impact on security, risk and compliance. The Target credit card breach is one example in which a heating and air conditioning supplier was the doorway in to a significant breach of a point of sale system and theft of credit card data. Organisations have to manage risk across their third party supplier relationships but are limited in the resources they can devote to this.

    This 'Expert' webinar will address the following:-

    o Understand the growing array of third party relationships
    o The impact of third party relationships on security, risk and compliance
    o Elements of an effective, efficient, and agile vendor risk management process
    o How other areas of the organisation can leverage a common approach to third party risk management

    Attend this webinar if:-

    o You are concerned by the growing number of third party supplier relationships
    o You realise your risk and compliance exposure is growing because of these relationships
    o You need to be able to manage supplier risk but cannot recruit more staff to do so
    o You desire the need to know how to keep current in a dynamic environment of third party relationships
  • The term Smart City is gaining momentum the world over, but does that mean that cities are becoming “smarter” or just looking to improve their image? What does it truly mean to be a “smart” city? And is it resonating with their residents, businesses and visitors? This briefing will look into how the smallest changes approaching city services can have a big impact on everything from security to energy and traffic to urban revitalization

    Reasons to Attend:

    - To understand key challenges cities are facing in the face of issues such as urbanization, environmental responses and new technologies
    - To examine new ways cities are integrating smarter solutions to address seemingly unrelated services, for better quality of life and a higher tax base
    - To explore how suppliers can provide comprehensive solutions to such a fragmented market
  • Connected homes are prime examples of innovative applications of technology meant to enable enriched lifestyle experiences for consumers. However, allowing third parties an open access to home networks to deliver these experiences exposes both the consumer and service providers to the potential vulnerabilities of cyberspace. It is critical to understand that cyber threats require collective responsibility and accountability sharing from all stakeholders involved.

    This briefing will deliberate upon the issue of cybersecurity as it pertains to the connected home environment. An expert panel comprising members of Frost & Sullivan, connected home technology leaders, and a consumer privacy advocate will provide advice and opinions with regard to addressing this disruptive trend. Industry participants will learn how to address the issue of cyber breach and maintain continued interest in living the connected experience.
