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.

European Parliament Gives A Resounding Vote In Favour Of Clean Energy In Europe

European lawmakers have called for a renewable energy target of 35% for 2030 – rather than the 27% which the European Commission proposed in 2016. The MEPs have now backed measures substantially raising the European Union’s clean-energy ambitions. By 2030, more than one-third of energy consumed in the EU should be from renewable sources such as wind and solar power. The measures are intended to help cut carbon dioxide emissions. The EU is the world’s third-largest emitter of greenhouse gases after China and the United States, releasing about 10% of global emissions.

EV, Renewables See CO2 Emissions Plateau By 2030, But Far From 2 Degree Pathway

Major shifts in the global energy landscape, particularly related to electric vehicles (EVs) and renewable energy sources, mean that MEI expects global CO₂emissions to plateau by 2030. However, increased global energy demand means emissions will remain at more than double the level required for a 2 degrees Celsius warming pathway. Ole Rolser, Associate Partner and Solution Leader at MEI, comments: “Despite the significant momentum around EVs and renewable energy sources taking an increasing share of the power market, to realise the 2 degrees pathway scenario, we’d have to see much broader, much more disruptive change than what we’re seeing now.”

US: Doubling Of Wind & Solar Capacity Possible By 2020 as Coal & Nuclear Drop

In the latest issue of its “Energy Infrastructure Update” (with data through November 30, 2017), the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) notes that proposed net additions to generating capacity by utility-scale wind and solar could total 115,984 megawatts (MW) by December 2020 – effectively doubling their current installed capacity of 115,520 MW.  The numbers were released as FERC prepares for a January 10 meeting to consider U.S. Department of Energy Secretary Rick Perry’s proposal for a bailout of the coal and nuclear industries.
