Evolving engineering, procurement and construction model power plant design - 0 views

  •  
    "The engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) model for power plant design and construction has demonstrated its ability to provide overall project guarantees and a single point of responsibility for owners. However, both the EPC provider and - to a greater extent - the plant owner, can realize significant improvements to this approach by engaging earlier and deeper with the OEM providing the instrumentation, control and electrical system (ICE)."

    "Asia Pacific: The Largest Market for Switchgear

    The Asia-Pacific region holds the largest market for switchgear, driven largely by the number of transmission and distribution line up gradations and developments in the South East Asia. These developments are due to its growing energy needs is the major growth engine for this market.

    Utilities: Biggest Market by Application

    Switchgear is mostly used in Transmission & Distribution by power utility companies. They are used for switching the equipment or the circuit during the event of fault. With the growing transmission and distribution network across globe, the number of substations will keep on increasing. This increasing number of substations is expected to increase the use and demand for switchgears. Maximum T&D expansion projects are ongoing in Asia-Pacific and the market is expected to be the biggest and the fastest growing market for switchgear.

    The Switchgear industry is fragmented and offers several opportunities for consolidation and growth in efficiency through an increase in economies of scale. The industry has low entry and exit barriers. This is a major driver of the Switchgear Market. Top players of the PR market are ABB (Switzerland), Eaton Corporation (Ireland), GE (U.S.), and Siemens AG (Germany)."

Is the Vietnam Electricity Reform a Distant Reality? - 0 views

  •  
    "Vietnam is one of the few countries in the Southeast Asian region that has established regulatory bodies in the power sector. In 2004, the Electricity Reform Law was introduced to establish a competitive electricity market in the country. Reforms were initiated in 2012 and agencies such as the Directorate General of Energy (DGE) under the Ministry of Industry and Trade (MOIT) and Electricity Regulatory Authority of Vietnam (ERAV) restricted the control and ownership of transmission grid and power generation of Vietnam Electricity (EVN)."

Trillions needed for World Energy Infrastructure Buildout to 2030 - 1 views

  •  
    "Globally, Bloomberg New Energy Finance expects $7.7 trillion to be invested in new generating capacity by 2030, with 66% of that going on renewable technologies including hydro. Out of the $5.1 trillion to be spent on renewables, Asia-Pacific will account for $2.5 trillion, the Americas $816bn, Europe $967bn and the rest of the world including Middle East and Africa $818bn.

    Fossil fuels will retain the biggest share of power generation by 2030 at 44%, albeit down from 64% in 2013. Some 1,073GW of new coal, gas and oil capacity worldwide will be added over the next 16 years, excluding replacement plant."

Automotive Use Will Drive Aluminum Demand - 0 views

  • The first is from the FT and reviews the quiet but steady migration from the use of copper to aluminum for the transmission of electrical power. In Europe and the US, we are familiar with the widespread use of All Aluminum Cables (AAC) for the long distance transmission of high voltage electrical power, but in other parts of the world — often parts of the world undergoing the most rapid development of transmission systems such as Asia  — copper is still the majority. In Western countries, the article quotes a producer as saying, roughly 60% of overhead and insulated power cables are made of aluminum but in the Gulf region and China it is only about 25%.
