Energy From Waste 2017 – Where The Waste To Energy Industry Does Business

In a changing political landscape, now, more than ever, we need to better utilise waste as a resource to ensure energy security. Investment in research and innovation must continue if we are to extract maximum value for the global energy industry.

The obvious challenge is keeping up with potentially game-changing developments in future energy from waste policy following significant global political shifts, including the UK’s decision to leave the EU.

So it is opportune that the Energy from Waste 2017 conference is on the horizon to provide answers in these uncertain times.

Taking place on 21-22 February 2017 in London, the conference agenda includes a keynote on what Brexit might mean for the European energy market, a panel review of key drivers in waste gasification, exclusive insight into opportunities in Eastern Europe, a case study on Brazil and practical workshops on due diligence and refuse derived fuel.

Delegates will hear from a stellar line-up of renowned international speakers, including: Mike Brown, managing director, Eunomia who will present key findings from the latest Residual Waste Infrastructure Review in Europe, and Dick Hoogendoorn, from the Dutch Waste Management Association, who will join the panel benchmarking UK energy from waste performance against other European countries.

The thought-provoking agenda also addresses the future of energy from waste, with insight provided on local authorities’ future role in operational waste contracts, and expert coverage on new secondary and tertiary technologies making energy from waste economically viable.

In addition to the valuable content, the conference is the ideal environment to meet new suppliers, explore new partnership opportunities in the waste to energy sector. Delegates are invited to attend the relaxed and informal networking dinner and pre-arrange one-to-one meetings with fellow attendees.

Delegates can also see for themselves how EfW technologies are being successfully utilised with an exclusive visit to an energy from waste facility thermally treating household and commercial waste.

This innovative programme ensures Energy from Waste 2017 remains the premier conference driving new technology discussion, operational efficiency, best practice and compliance in the global energy from waste sector.

Enel Awarded 339 MW Of Solar Capacity In Spanish Renewables Tender

Enel S.p.A., acting through its Spanish subsidiary Endesa’s renewable company Enel Green Power España (EGPE), has been awarded 339 MW of solar capacity in Spain. The award followed the tender aiming at collecting 3 GW from renewable energies, launched by the Spanish Government to help the country achieve its target to cover 20% of energy consumption from renewables by 2020. The solar capacity adds to the 540 MW of wind power capacity that EGPE was already awarded last May. “This new milestone confirms our commitment to green energy in Spain, a country which continues to offer growth opportunities for our renewable projects,” said Antonio Cammisecra, Enel’s Head of Global Renewable Energies.

Siemens Gamesa Installs Asia’s Tallest Turbines, Whilst Stepping Up Integration

Siemens Gamesa has set a new record in Asia by installing this year the tallest wind turbines on the continent. The turbines are equipped with 153-metre tall towers, and with the 56-metre blades, they reach a total height of 210 metres. Presently, a major focus for the company is the integration of the entities of Siemens and Gamesa. This has the objective of realising the new company’s substantial potential, thanks to its bigger scale and global reach: a presence in more than 90 countries, an installed base of 75 GW, and an order book of €21bn.

Offshore Wind Drives 6.1 GW Of European Wind Installations In First Half Of 2017

6.1 GW of extra wind energy capacity was installed in Europe in the first half of 2017, according to figures released by WindEurope. The figure puts Europe on course for a bumper year for installations, although hides some worrying trends. WindEurope Chief Policy Officer, Pierre Tardieu, said: “We are on track for a good year in wind capacity installations but growth is driven by a handful of markets. At least ten EU countries have yet to install a single MW so far this year. Although this won’t translate into lower installations for another few years, the industry needs clarity on volumes for the post-2020 period to maintain the current cost reduction trend”.

35% Of German Electricity Consumption Now From Renewables: Grid Challenges Ahead

The Centre for Solar Energy and Hydrogen Research in Baden-Württemberg (ZSW) and the German Association of Energy and Water Industries (BDEW) have stated in an initial assessment that electricity generated from clean energy accounted for 35% of Germany’s consumption in 1H 2017. It’s the first time that this mark has been reached. The total share of electricity generated from renewables was up 2% from last year. The growth from onshore wind was 13.6%; offshore wind saw the steepest growth at 47.5%; growth from biomass increased by 2.2%, whilst the growth from PV systems was 13.5%, compared with the 1H 2016.
