Diversity and convergence: the 2016 Energy Barometer

by Energy Institute (EI)  (Jun. 15, 2016)

Energy professionals are a pretty diverse lot: engineers, managers, planners, finance people, lawyers and others. Lots of different perspectives but some remarkably convergent views have emerged from the 2016 Energy Barometer survey of 438 members of the Energy Institute.

What factors are influencing waste to energy capacity requirements in the UK and Europe?

by Rethink Events Ltd.  (May 9, 2016)

What factors are influencing waste to energy capacity requirements in the UK and Europe? How can the EU balance its EFW capacity going forward? As growth in municipal recycling has slowed to a crawl over the last five years, after racing from 11.2% in 2000/01 to 41.5% in 2010/11, the European target of 50% recycling by 2020 is beginning to look ...

South Africa innovates to support soaring renewables growth

by Inderscience Publishers  (Nov. 5, 2009)

Triggered by the distress around climate change and security of supply, European countries struggle to diversify their energy portfolio while producing less carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, favouring a transition to avoid a system collapse. However, this situation is not new. Thirty years ago, prompted by two consecutive oil crises, Brazil started ...
