Energy World January 2020
We cover energy use as well as supply in this magazine. Reducing wastage, buying well and employing on-site generation and storage are fundamental demand-side imperatives. So, we include articles on low carbon initiatives in the distilling industry; power purchase agreements with renewable generators; and on-site energy storage – both heating and cooling – in our energy management feature.
The second theme is skills and training. We ask how East Anglia is gearing up to train the workforce drawn to its many new North Sea wind farms; we interview an energy manager working in the civil engineering industry about her work; and we look at the new skills needed for the decarbonisation of heat.
There is also a cabling theme. ABB describes how HVDC technology is about to connect offshore wind farms to terrestrial grids, while Jennifer Johnson travels to Spain to see subsea cable laying technology used to connect the Balearics to the mainland. Last, is 'intermittent' solar PV actually a variable and predictable baseload generator? This is the argument made on page 30.
The issue also includes updates from the UK and the world – from global carbon emissions trends to a new gas-fired power station in Norfolk.
