Natural gas infrastructure in the southeastern U.S. case study
MJB&A performed a high-level evaluation of the natural gas infrastructure in the Southeast. The report examines supply dynamics, pipeline infrastructure, storage capacity, and import facilities that are available to serve the region. We concluded that there is substantial existing pipeline and production capacity for natural gas to play an expanded role in the region’s energy mix. The ...
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 ...
Methane as an energy source for the 21st century
Today, fossil fuels supply about 80% of global primary energy. The consequences are severe for human health from indoor and regional air pollution, acidification due to sulphur and nitrogen oxide emissions and climate change due to rapidly growing greenhouse gas emissions. Therefore, there is a clear need to improve the efficiency and the environmental compatibility of fossil technologies, shift ...
A technical overview of our SAR topo implementation
As you may have read in our preceding post, the Search and Rescue (SAR) map we are building seeks to combine the vital features of USGS topographic maps with the ease of use, readability, and higher update frequency of a vector tile based map, in addition to providing supplemental data that may prove useful in SAR related work. This follow-up post is meant to further elaborate on the process ...
Strategies for the promotion of cleaner and energy efficient technologies in the urban transport system in selected Asian cities
This paper presents key findings of a study conducted under Asian Regional Research Programme in Energy, Environment and Climate on least cost options to meet the projected transport service demand in eight selected Asian cities. It also presents the barriers to the adoption of the selected cleaner transport options. Furthermore, it discusses some policies and measures to promote the cleaner ...
Energy Efficiency prospects: What to watch
Events unfolding in two US Northeast states – New York and Massachusetts – signal increased business opportunity for energy efficiency companies, green architects, lighting contractors, smart grid innovators and others in the business of saving energy. First, the energy efficiency world should keep an eye on debate over the possible shutdown of the Indian Point nuclear power plant in ...
Hydrogen as Future Fuel for Gas Engines
Gas engines are providing a wide range of fuel flexibility from burning natural gas and a variety of non- natural gaseous fuels from low British Thermal Unit (BTU) gases as well as gases containing a high hydrogen content. Hydrogen containing gases can be found as by-product from steel (furnace gas) or chemical process, or alternatively hydrogen is produced and blended to natural gas. In the ...
The world gas market in 2030 – development scenarios using the World Gas Model
We discuss potential developments of the world natural gas industry through 2030. We use the World Gas Model (WGM), a multi-period strategic representation of the global natural gas sector, between 2005 and 2030. We specify a 'base case' and then analyse the sensitivity of the world natural gas system with scenarios, including various supply scenarios (e.g., emergence of large volumes of ...
Scalable Power to Match Industrial Park Growth in Southeast Asia Case Study
Powerphase recently installed two Turbophase modules at a Malaysian high-tech park, one of several projects it has underway in Asia. Ensuring reliable and efficient natural gas capacity is a challenge in the fast-growing Southeast Asian grid. Southeast Asia’s hot climate is a challenge for efficient CCGT operation because hotter ambient temperatures reduce air density and GT combustion ...
Fog Provides Cooling for Natural Gas Pipeline Compressor Stations Case Study
High pressure fog enables pipelines to maintain production levels and stay online during hot weather conditions. After new compressor units were installed at a North Carolina compression facility, the cooling systems began to reach capacity causing the compressor to overheat due to hot weather conditions. The plant compression engineer chose MicroCool fog systems to provide adjunct cooling ...
Feature: Permian oil producers have a natural gas problem
A natural gas bottleneck in the Permian Basin could force oil producers to shut wells or seek waivers to flare large amounts of natural gas if takeaway capacity does not catch up by the end of this year. Lack of natural gas pipelines could impact oil output Producers may seek to expand flaring to keep oil flowing Citi says severe glut could send Waha gas price to zero Texas Railroad ...
Power Outage Solutions: How Businesses Can Protect Themselves from Blackouts
In a few short weeks, the U.S. saw unprecedented stretches of its territory go dark. Millions of people across the nation experienced blackouts in October, feeling the first-hand wrath of a changing climate and an aging grid. On the west coast, the threat of wildfires spurred three of California’s largest utilities to cut power to millions of people; some were without power for more than ...

SGBI opinion article: shale gas
Government perceives electric vehicles to be a panacea that will solve problems surrounding air quality and CO2 emissions simultaneously. The EV has two main selling points: reduced CO2 emissions and high efficiency. However, these are only valid at a superficial level and the argument disintegrates under any level of scrutiny. In terms of CO2 emissions, EVs replace ‘average’ cars to ...
Renewable & Clean Energy Solutions to Secure Energy Independence from Foreign Oil. FOREIGN OIL: As imports grow and world prices rise, the amount of money we send to foreign nations every year is soaring. At current oil prices, we will send $700 billion dollars out of the country this year alone — that’s four times the annual cost of the Iraq war. Projected over the next 10 ...
