A year after the installation of a 229kW Cogeneration System at the Oasis Regional Aquatic Centre in Wagga Wagga, the results have proven again that Cogeneration was a good investment.
In 'Flicking the switch: are electric utilities prepared for a low carbon future' - CDP's research, the second of a series, ranks European utilities in a league table (see end) based on a number of different emissions-related metrics. When taken in aggregate, these metrics could have a material impact on a company's earnings in a market where the regulator is seeking to cut greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the EU by 40% by 2030 (and 80% by 2050) from 1990 levels.
Low-carbon electricity supplied a record 38.3 per cent of power in 2014, with 19.2% coming from renewable sources.
A well installed and correctly operated CHP can give thousands of pounds in energy savings and significantly reduce carbon emissions. Our new advice note for contractors, consultants and customers, is designed to help users maximise the benefits of combined heat and power (CHP) and avoid some of the key pitfalls when installing and operating CHP.
The Commission has launched a sector inquiry into measures to ensure sufficient electricity supplies ("capacity mechanisms"). This sector inquiry examines in particular whether capacity mechanisms ensure sufficient electricity supply without distorting competition or trade in the EU's Single Market for energy.
The UK Supreme Court has quashed the Government’s ineffective plans to cut illegal levels of air pollution in Britain and ordered it to deliver new ones by the end of the year.
Metropolitan and E.ON have been selected to provide the district heating system powering the next phase of the Greenwich Millennium Village (GMVL) development. The Metropolitan energy and utility infrastructure will be supplied by a new energy centre owned and operated by E.ON which will serve 1,743 new houses to be built over the next eight years.
Our annual District Heating Conference will take place on the 13th May in Edinburgh. View the programme for the event here.
As we near the general election, the Association for Decentralised Energy reviewed the parties’ manifestos to better understand what they will mean for the decentralised energy sector and energy users.
The public sector achieved a 14% energy efficiency improvement in 2013, worth €74 million in savings to the Exchequer. That is according to the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) who today published the first Annual Report on Public Sector Energy Efficiency Performance. 238 public bodies with a total energy spend of €588 million, reported, representing 85% of the estimated energy consumption of the public sector. The cumulative value of savings from 2009 – 2013 for these bodies is almost €250m.
By 2050, the UK must reduce its emissions by 80% relative to 1990 levels, in accordance with its commitment to improving energy efficiency. As a result, the UK commercial heating sector is a key target for improving efficiencies.
ENER-G has turned up the heat on the anaerobic digestion market by launching a new sub 200kwth CHP unit that maximises financial returns on both the highest rate Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) and Feed in Tariffs (FIT).
Data center operators are late adopters of combined heat and power, a technology that’s been around since the late 1800s and used extensively in hospitals, refineries, petrochemical and biotech facilities. But using such plants as the source of data center power can have substantial energy efficiency and cost reductions benefits.
The IET is pleased to invite Association for Decentralised Energy members to take part in the programme of RPG 2016. The conference offers an opportunity to present your latest renewable energy research and results to an audience of like-minded specialists. With over 200 international experts expected to attend, you should ensure you don’t miss out!
