Attitudes to combined heat and power technology have transformed, according to speakers at the world’s largest electric power conference.
And interview with Emily Fisher, Vice President, Law, and Corporate Secretary at Edison Electric Institute about the view from Washington following a Thursday, December 7 Plenary discussion at POWER-GEN International. Fisher describes the two different avenues that President Trump is pursuing regarding regulations and the energy industry.
Today's topics include highlights from POWER-GEN, the largest show for the power generation industry, the energy imbalance market, Azeb Asnake, the solar trade case and more.
After spending years building up its gas-power business, General Electric Co. is trying to figure out how to keep pace in a world that’s no longer all that interested in fossil fuels.
The Trump administration, which was looking to have a plan in place this week to bail out America’s coal country, will instead have to wait until the new year.
Kevin McIntyre, sworn in Thursday as chairman of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, asked for a 30-day extension to act on a sweeping proposal by Energy Secretary Rick Perry that would subsidize struggling coal and nuclear plants. Perry, who had called on the commission to come up with a plan by Dec. 11, granted the delay late Friday, saying he “respects the reasons” but “looked forward to swift action.”
There has been a steady stream of mergers and acquisitions (M&A) in the utility sector over the past several years. These transactions generally require public service commissions (PSC) approval in the states in which one or both of the parties have operations, and the PSCs are typically charged with approving only transactions that are in the public interest.
Electric grids are mighty complicated. Of course, if you’re in the industry, you don’t need me to tell you that. When we created these huge networks of wires to pass electricity from generator to user, we simultaneously needed to track where the energy originated and where it went so we could figure out how to pay people for the energy they provided.
Wind turbine operators are under tremendous pressure to minimize maintenance costs and maximize turbine availability in order to protect profits. A vibration monitoring strategy can help engineers can establish a robust preventative maintenance regime and boost reliability.
The services that drone companies can provide to wind farm owners/operators will lead to faster, cheaper and more efficient operations and maintenance solutions, which will completely transform the O&M business.
Though the power industry continues to endure rapid change in technology, demand and regulation, the five keynote speakers at POWER-GEN International 2017 focused on making the most of a changing market through convergence and collaboration.
