Making better use of the grid
31 March, 2023
Amir Cohen, founder & CEO of EGM (Electrical Grid Monitoring, Inc), argues that ‘multi-sensing’ technologies deployed on the current grid, accurately analysing many parameters in real time, could greatly increase grid capacity and improve performance, reducing the need for spending on new infrastructure.

Recip suppliers look to hydrogen
29 March, 2023
Rolls-Royce has conducted successful tests of a 12-cylinder gas variant of the mtu Series 4000 L64 engine running on 100% hydrogen fuel. The tests, carried out by the Power Systems business unit, showed very good characteristics in terms of efficiency, performance, emissions and combustion.

RWE prioritises storage
23 March, 2023
RWE reports that “Germany’s first megabattery” is complete. It has a capacity of 117 MW (128 MWh), and consists of 420 blocks of lithium-ion batteries located at two power plant sites, with 49 MWh at Lingen (Lower Saxony) and 79 MWh at Werne (North Rhine-Westphalia), “intelligently linked” to RWE’s run- of-river power plants on the Moselle River.

Working fluid of the future?
22 March, 2023
Over the last two decades, there has been a significant R&D effort directed at power generation cycles with supercritical carbon dioxide as the working fluid. Due to the unique properties of CO2 at pressures and temperatures above its critical point, it is possible to design compact turbomachinery with high efficiency for diverse applications ranging from nuclear power to waste heat recovery. An important imminent development is the entry into operation, expected shortly, of the USDOE funded 10 MWe STEP Demo sCO2 pilot plant facility on the campus of Southwest Research Institute, San Antonio, TX, USA, with project participants including GE and GTI Energy. The potential of the oxycombustion sCO2 Allam–Fetvedt Cycle (with its inherent carbon capture capabilities, eliminating the need for expensive chemical process plant add-ons) is also attracting considerable interest.

Dutch offshore tenders encourage innovation
08 March, 2023
In December 2022, it was announced that Ecowende, a joint venture of Shell and Eneco, was winner of the permit for the Hollandse Kust (west) Site VI offshore wind farm, following assessment of the applications received by the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO) and an independent expert committee.

Hyme Energy’s first-of-a-kind CHP retrofit, in Bornholm
08 March, 2023
Hyme Energy’s molten hydroxide salt based energy storage technology is to be deployed in 2024 at a CHP plant in Rønne, the main city of the Danish energy island, Bornholm.

Powering the energy transition
01 March, 2023
Green ammonia is being increasingly recognised as a cost effective way of transporting green energy over long distances, and also as a potential fuel. It is relatively easy to liquefy and has a much higher volumetric energy density than liquid hydrogen. Ammonia (albeit grey) also has the advantage of already being a globally traded commodity, with a mature transport infrastructure.

Arenko’s optimal performance
01 March, 2023
Arenko has signed a second contract with Vattenfall to optimise a new co- located 20 MW/45.5 MWh battery asset in Northumberland, north east England.

GNA II on target for 2025
12 January, 2023
Construction is underway at the GNA II LNG-fuelled combined cycle power plant in Brazil, with commercial operation planned for January 2025. Under a contract placed earlier this year, SENER has similar scope on GNA II to what it had on GNA I, which entered operation in 2021. This scope focuses on basic and detailed engineering and aims to achieve complete multidisciplinary integration between GNA I and GNA II, which will have a combined installed capacity of some 3 GW, and the associated LNG terminal. The facilities are located in the Port of Açú, State of Rio de Janeiro.

At the turning point?
12 January, 2023
The global energy crisis triggered by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is causing profound and long-lasting changes that have the potential to hasten the transition to a more sustainable and secure energy system, according to the latest edition of the IEA’s World Energy Outlook. For the first time, global demand for each of the fossil fuels shows a peak or plateau across all WEO scenarios, with Russian exports in particular falling significantly as the world energy order is reshaped.
