Energy Exemplar – PLEXOS® Integrated Energy Model Applications
| By Energy Exemplar
In the past, the US electricity markets were characterised by vertically integrated and monopolistic electric utilities. These utility companies owned the generation, transmission and distribution networks and electric rates were reviewed and approved by public utility commissions or public boards. However, in the past couple of decades, these vertically integrated structures have been replaced by regional wholesale markets.

Integration of Wind and Solar Energy in the California Power System: Results from Simulations of a 20% Renewable Portfolio Standard
| By Energy Exemplar
California’s existing Renewables Portfolio Standard (RPS) requires utilities to supply 20% of all consumed electricity from eligible renewable resources by 2010. Compliance with the RPS is now anticipated in the 2011-2012 timeframe, with the exact timing dependent on load growth, contract implementation, and other factors (CPUC 2010a). The majority of new renewable generation capacity needed to realize this goal will come from additional variable energy resources, primarily wind and solar technologies.

Gas Power Plant Fuel Requirements and Uncertainty Considering Increasing Renewables Penetration
| By Energy Exemplar
With recent discoveries of large proven gas reserves off the coasts of Mozambique and Tanzania coupled with the already flourishing gas industries in West and North Africa, there is little doubt that gas-fired power plants have a major role to play in the African energy mix across the continent.

Elegant Solutions to Power and Gas Sector Challenges
| By Energy Exemplar
There are all kinds of uncertainty today in the natural gas and electric sectors. For example, with the advent of power markets and the evolution of market mechanisms, both financial and physical positions have uncertainty, which requires quantification to better plan for the future.

Assessing Power System Security. A Framework and a Multi Model Approach
| By Energy Exemplar
This paper presents a methodological framework using a multi model approach to assess power system security. System security is viewed here as a multidimensional systemic property of the entire energy system. The paper shows that the different dimensions of a secure energy system are correlated, and hence their behaviour cannot be explained solely by a understanding of the individual dimensions or by system elements in isolation.

PLEXOS® Integrated Energy Modelling Around the Globe
| By Energy Exemplar
European energy markets’ integration challenges: European energy markets are in a crossroad, being faced with a long list of significant challenges that are mostly lying ahead. An internally integrated Pan-European market that really works as a single, efficient, competitive market and that provides affordable energy to all EU member states and European consumers is still the main aim.

Bridging the Power Gap in Africa: Testing Options to Manage Constrained Short to Medium Term System Operations
| By Energy Exemplar
This paper presents an analytical assessment of options for system operators to use to stop/reduce what seems like a downward spiral of system adequacy in the short to medium term. A model is developed which assesses a number of supply and demand side options for system operators to use to help weather the storm in the short to medium term.

Intertec: Passively-Cooled Shelters for Remote Equipment in Hot and Arid Climates
| By Intertec
The reliability of electronics equipment is dramatically shortened if it operates in very hot conditions, which is why much electronic equipment incorporates fan cooling. Equipment builders designing for arid climates have always faced considerable environmental protection problems. Traditional cooling techniques require a power supply, which often poses severe difficulties. The problem is growing bigger as the topology of SCADA evolves towards more distributed and unmanned systems, and new solutions are being sought. Although solar cells and DC powered air conditioning techniques are making progress, their relative lack of efficiency, together with the problems of battery lifecycles in hot climates, continues to make environmental protection complicated and expensive.

Fire Protection for Process Valves by INTERTEC
| By Intertec
The continued operation of valves during the early stages of a fire event in an oil, gas or chemical facility is usually a critical element of response strategies, in order to stop the process from feeding the flames with large quantities of flammable materials. Hydrocarbon-based fires in particular present a major problem for plant designers, as the rate of temperature rise in a fire can be extreme, reaching over 1,000ºC within a few minutes.
