  • Power Plant Asset Transactions Managing Environmental Issues

    Deregulation of the electricity industry has spawned unprecedented asset transfer activity among electric generating companies. Many companies are focusing on generation, while a large number of former generating companies are shifting their focus to concentrate on power distribution and communication initiatives. The result is a significant turnover of power plants to new owners as generating ...

  • Wind Energy Production Estimates: Moving Beyond Time Averages

    No need to be a statistician to see that averages are often useful to compare different things. And yet, they often fall short as a true measure of performance. For instance, we use averages to compare the current weather against the climate normals or to get a sense of how our favorite sport team or player is doing. Team (player) statistics are a concise way of combining the scores from many ...

  • Turning a Liability into an Asset: A Landfill Gas-to-Energy Project Development Handbook

    Each person in the United States generates about 4.5 pounds of solid waste per day almost one ton per year. Most of this waste is deposited in municipal solid waste landfills. As this landfilled waste decomposes (a process that may take 30 years or more), it produces landfill gas. Landfill gas contributes to the formation of smog and poses an explosion hazard if uncontrolled. Furthermore, because ...

  • Zimbabwe Power Market Q1 2015 Analysis

    The outlook for Zimbabwe's power sector is moderate, but market opportunities for private investors are limited. On the upside, a number of major projects will boost generation to 15.7TWh by 2023, up from 8.7TWh in 2015, mainly by exploiting coal and hydropower. This will be underpinned by a steady rise in demand for electricity, from13.3TWh to 21.4TWh over our forecast period, as the ...


  • Optimising next-generation lithium ion batteries with infrared spectroscopy

    Lithium batteries have become the mainstay of modern portable electronics, providing a reliable power source to run mobile phones, laptop computers and electric vehicles. Lithium technology is now even being developed on a large scale to provide electricity storage to supplement the National Grid during peak demand [1]. The issue with lithium batteries remains the same – energy density ...
