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.

Global Trade In Biofuels Featured At International Renewable Mobility Conference

A significant proportion of global energy use, is in transportation. Action is crucially needed to bring about an energy turnaround in this sector and it’s a topic that has moved higher up the political agenda again since Dieselgate, and with growing calls for a rapid introduction of electromobility. In Germany, the Working Group on Energy Balances (AG Energiebilanzen) has calculated the final energy consumption of 728 TWh by the transport sector in 2016. Data from the German Environment Agency (UBA) reveals that over 90 percent of fuel deployed is derived from mineral oil. World-leading experts meeting in a parallel forum at the 15th International Conference on Renewable Mobility will analyse biofuel trading worldwide, examining various perspectives on requirements, the current state of play and forecasts.

EDF Commissions 179 MW At Two Solar Power Plants In Nevada

Policy makers led by US Senator Harry Reid were present at a celebration formally recognising Switch Stations 1 and 2 solar power plants, with a combined generation capacity of 179 MWac, as fully commissioned and in commercial operation. Senator Reid stated “Less than a decade ago, Nevada’s solar energy landscape was nonexistent, but this commissioning helps fulfil the vision I had to make our state the leader in renewable energy development. A technology giant like Switch committing to using 100% renewable energy is truly visionary and grows our clean energy economy by creating hundreds of good-paying construction jobs here.”

Renewable Future Challenges UK And Germany To Build Flexibility In Power Systems

A new economic study highlights that future energy systems in the UK and Germany, with very high levels of variable renewable generation, must be complemented by flexible resources, including energy storage. The study was released by Bloomberg New Energy Finance (BNEF). “This study highlights a seismic shift in how power systems will operate in the future. As wind and solar become the cheapest options for power generation, the race is on to develop and deploy the flexible resources that will complement them,” said Albert Cheung, head of global analysis at Bloomberg New Energy Finance.

By 2036, Clean Energy Can Account for 37% of The Energy Mix For Thailand

With a stronger and more ambitious energy development plan, Thailand’s share of renewable energy in total final energy consumption could surpass its national target by a quarter and reach more than 37 percent by 2036, according to a new report published by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) and the Ministry of Energy of Thailand. Renewable Energy Outlook: Thailand finds that decreasing imports of fossil fuels and increasing the share of renewables in the energy mix to 37 percent would improve energy security and reduce the cost of Thailand’s energy system by USD 1.2 billion annually by 2036.
