  • Experts in combustion control - Expert Paper

    Fired heaters are integral to hydrocarbon processing (HP). Specifically designed for the reaction of fuel and air to produce extremely high gas temperatures, heaters transfer this energy to potentially highly flammable process fluids via heat exchangers. They consume large quantities of fuel, produce large quantities of emissions and are a potential safety hazard to personnel and plant. However, ...

  • The Energy-saving and Environmental Protection of LED Tri-proof Luminaires Have Made Great Contributions to the Processing Industry

    The three-proof lamps made of PC material are better material style, even if they are stepped on by foot, they will not break, and they are very durable. However, the transparency of this material is not as good as that of ABS lamps. The lamp made of ABS material is very brittle and crackable, but the transparency of this material is very good and bright. PMMA materials are cheaper, but less ...

  • The informational content of oil and natural gas prices in energy fund performance

    This paper explores whether the informational content of oil and gas prices has an impact on energy mutual fund returns. We first re–visit the relationship between oil and gas prices and energy index returns; our findings confirm that better energy index performance is associated with oil and gas price increases. Using the Fama and MacBeth (1973) two–stage regressions, we find that the ...

  • Biogas as an option for industrial applications

    Biogas is typically burned to produce electricity or used as vehicle fuel. This case study analyses possibilities to utilise biogas directly in industrial applications to replace current fossil raw materials. True industrial cases are analysed by considering economic impacts of using either landfill gas or gas produced from biomass. Utilisation of biogas is economically viable and technically ...

  • Technological change, energy consumption, and the costs of environmental policy in energy–economy–environment modelling

    An increasing number of empirical models analyse the economic and environmental impacts of policies that aim at reducing global climate change. Assumptions about technology are found to play a crucial role. Applied energy-economy-environment models propose different approaches to deal with technological change. Bottom-up models take into account many alternative technologies for future energy ...

  • MDESRAP: a model for understanding the dynamics of electricity supply, resources and pollution

    The inherent dynamic complexity of the energy policy design problem makes the conventional "closed-form" solution impossible. This paper contributes a dynamic simulation model as a possible solution. The model captures the dynamics of underlying sectors of electricity demand, investment, capital, resource, production, environment and costs and pricing. The existing feedback loops, nonlinearity ...

  • Project valuation with financial leasing contracts

    Financial leasing is prevalent in many projects in the oil and energy industries. Examples are tariff payments in existing pipelines, processing tariffs, leasing of rigs and leasing of LNG transportation ships. A common mistake among oil companies in such settings is to treat financial leasing costs as operating cost and discount with the firm's weighted average cost of capital (WACC). This ...

  • Coordination of exergy analysis and the MIND method - applied to a pulp and board mill

    The MIND (Method for analysis of INDustrial energy systems) method has been developed for cost optimisation of industrial energy systems, mainly with regard to quantities of energy. Exergy analysis reveals losses, efficiencies and possible improvements. These methods can be combined in order to improve industrial energy systems. In this paper, a Swedish pulp and board mill is used as a case ...

  • Entrepreneurship and rural development: role of street-level bureaucracy in India

    In this study, we apply the concept of street-level bureaucracy from public management to analyse the issues relating to the implementation of a mini Hydel project in India, and draw important lessons for entrepreneurs as well as policy planners for the promotion of rural development through entrepreneurship in emerging markets in general. India's energy policy promotes 'green energy' as a ...

  • Iran's strong case for nuclear power is obscured by UN sanctions and geopolitics

    Rapid growth in Iran's domestic energy demand and its dependence on oil exports for revenue has forced it to consider alternative future energy solutions. Years of inadequate investment in new infrastructure to develop oil and gas reserves may lead to a rapid decline in oil production and delays to key projects that have the potential to expand oil and gas exports over the next decade. Broad ...

  • World Bank to shift its global investment policy

    As part of a major energy strategy, the World Bank is planning to cut funding for fossil fuel plants and focus on renewables. The World Bank is planning to cut funding for fossil fuel plants and emphasise the benefits of renewables as part of a major energy strategy. The news suggest a major shift in the bank’s approach to green investment, and comes just days after the organisation said ...

  • Agent-based modelling of energy infrastructure transitions

    Shaping energy transitions not only requires technical system innovation and redesign but also new policies, regulations, Research and Development (R&D) and investment strategies – a transition assemblage. Transition management thus equates to designing and implementing such an assemblage. Agent-Based Models (ABMs) may be used for ex-ante assessment of transition assemblage alternatives. To help ...

  • Green energy test

    Investment growth in clean energy plummeted from phenomenal rates of more than 50% a year in 2005-7 to just 5% in 2008. With credit hard to get hold of and oil prices languishing in the region of $40 dollar/barrel, what does the future hold for what was a booming alternative energy industry? Michael Liebreich – founder and CEO of New Energy Finance, clean energy analysts – is surprisingly ...

  • Interview Vivienne Cox, ceo BP alternative energy: A time for choices

    The economic downturn is sharpening the focus of clean energy investment, says Vivienne Cox, the head of BP’s Alternative Energy business. Cox detects an increasingly business-like approach that the industry is taking towards new investment. ‘It is a time for choices.’ Of the major oil and gas companies, BP was an early mover in promoting and pursuing the business of clean energy, although the ...

  • Technical issues in low to medium-temperature district heating

    Low-temperature district heating permits the use of energy resources formerly discarded or could not be claimed. However, its investment may be capital intensive because of equipment oversizing and temperature peaking required by conventional equipment. In classical design philosophy, flow is minimised in order to compensate some of the oversizing costs and to improve the utilisation rate of the ...

  • Energy from biogas

    From an ecological and economical perspective, biogas is an important source of energy. The fossil resources are limited, and they impose a high burden on the environment. A resourceconserving alternative made from biomass poses a different scenario. The raw material is renewable, and conversion only releases as much CO2 as was previously contained by the source material. With the technological ...
