  • Development of a coal shrinkage?swelling model accounting for water content in the micropores

    Changes in cleat permeability of coal seams are influenced by internal stress, and release or adsorption of gas in the coal matrix during production/injection processes. Coal shrinkage?swelling models have been proposed to quantify such changes; however none of the existing models incorporates the effect of the presence of water in the micropores on the gas sorption of coalbeds. This paper ...

  • The global energy industry: is competition among suppliers ensured?

    Over the last 15 years, many factors have affected the effective degree of competition in coal, electricity, gas and oil. This paper concentrates on the effects of globalisation, regulatory reform, privatisation and inter-fuel mergers. While demand side globalisation has led to increased competition, greater supply side globalisation might lead to more collusive behaviour in sectors such as coal ...

  • Linkages among the US energy futures markets

    This study investigates the price linkage among the US major energy sources, considering structural breaks in time series, to provide information for diversifying the US energy sources. We find that only a weak linkage sustains among crude oil, gasoline, heating oil, coal, natural gas, uranium and ethanol futures prices. This implies that the US major energy source markets are not integrated as ...

  • Inquiry into coal seam gas

    Poorly planned or managed coal seam gas (CSG) exploration or extraction activities pose considerable risks to both groundwater and surface water systems. Key water quality issues, from my own perspective, are listed below. Specific issues may be of greater or lesser significance for particular projects, but all of these issues should be thoroughly and transparently assessed for all proposed (or ...

  • The influence of climate change considerations on energy policy: the case of Russia

    To those working on climate change, it is obvious that energy policy should be influenced by climate change considerations. The question that this paper seeks to answer is, to what extent do they influence policy and what contribution can a careful analysis of the costs and benefits of climate change options have on the formulation of that policy? We seek to understand this by looking in some ...

  • Forecasting of commercial energy consumption in India using Artificial Neural Network

    The forecasting of energy consumption is essential for any country to study the future energy demand and to introduce the necessary government policies. This paper presents the formulation of forecasting models based on the Artificial Neural Network (ANN) for the consumption of conventional energy sources. In India, the total energy consumption for coal, oil, electricity and natural gas would be ...

  • Prospects for nuclear power in Australia and New Zealand

    The nuclear debate in Australia was recently enlivened by a Federal Government report (released in December 2006) on the economic viability of nuclear power as an option for electricity generation. Given the nation's large reserves of coal and gas, the question of the role of nuclear power rests to a large extent on future climate policy. Australia has the world's largest reserves of uranium and ...

  • Energy efficiency indicators for public electricity production from fossil fuels

    Electricity production is responsible for 32% of total global fossil fuel use, accounting for 132 EJ, and 41%, or 10.9 Gt of energy-related CO2 emissions. Improving the efficiency of electricity production therefore offers economic benefits and a significant opportunity for reducing dependence on fossil fuels, which helps to combat climate change and improve energy security. A set of indicators ...

  • Quantitative assessment of solar energy geo-policy risks

    Fossil fuels, such as coal, oil, gas, and wood, are the major part of contemporary energy mix. However, forecasts predict that solar energy will take up to 70% of global energy mix by year 2100. Solar energy has embedded risks, e.g., social, geopolitical, health-related, etc. These risks should be addressed in advance to prevent negative consequences but little research has addressed systemic ...

  • Exergy analysis of gas turbine – solid oxide fuel cell–based combined cycle power plant

    Fuel cell technology is one of the promising systems for cleaner and competitive alternate power generation systems. When the high temperature fuel cells like solid oxide fuel cell and molten carbon fuel cell are integrated with the gas turbines, the total thermal efficiency of the combined cycle can be obtained greater than 60%. In the present work, thermodynamic analysis of SOFC–GT combined ...

  • Performance of externally fired combined cycle (EFCC)

    The externally fired combined cycle (EFCC) which utilises coal as the primary fuel through a gas turbine cycle is a clean coal technology. Natural gas is used as the supplementary fuel, but the ultimate goal of the EFCC concept is a coal only option. In this study, the performance of the EFCC plant is evaluated based on the first and the second laws of thermodynamics, considering various levels ...

  • Regional differences and convergence of resources carrying capacity: a comparison of nine provinces and municipalities in China

    This paper applies an improved resources carrying capacity model established by Huang and He (2012), and estimates a single and composite resources carrying capacity, and uses sigma convergence, beta convergence and club convergence to investigate the dynamics of resources carrying capacity in nine provinces and municipalities in China from 1978 to 2008. Our results show that there exists time ...
