A conjuntura atual permite economia de até 40% para as organizações que optam pelo mercado livre de energia, administrado pela Câmara de Comercialização de Energia Elétrica (CCEE).
De acordo com o presidente do Conselho de Administração da CCEE, Rui Altiere, “são 329 processos de adesão de consumidores livres e especiais em andamento. A maioria para ser concluída até março de 2016.”
Neste Webinar, descobriremos:
•Os fundamentos desta oportunidade
•O passo a passo para implementar ela na sua empresa
This webinar will focus on the feature and content updates that were made to Scopus throughout 2015. We'll cover topics like the article-level metrics module, the books and cited reference expansion projects, and much more. We will also take a look forward to show you what you can expect from Scopus in 2016.
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.
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.
Mike O’Sullivan from NextEra Energy Resources will discuss his company’s ability to provide long term clean energy solutions that are economic, offering a host of renewable energy products from large scale wind and solar to onsite distributed generation solar and storage. NextEra Energy Resources has a broad portfolio of renewable energy assets and a large pipeline of projects to meet the needs of large C&I customers. Hear about their long history of providing value to renewable energy customers through success stories and how your
company can get involved.
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. La mise en place effective du mécanisme de capacité viendra en particulier impacter les budgets énergétiques des entreprises, impact qui doit être évalué dès à présent.
Ce webinaire, proposé par Schneider Electric, vous apportera les clés de l'évolution des coûts énergétiques pour les prochaines années, en répondant aux questions suivantes :
- Quels sont aujourd'hui les principaux leviers d'influence du prix du gaz et de l'électricité et que faut-il en attendre ?
- Quelle est la vision du RTE sur le mécanisme de capacité, ses enjeux et son état d'avancement ?
- Quel va être l'impact concret de ce mécanisme pour les entreprises ?

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.
