  • This overview at the Geothermal Program Review X: Geothermal Energy and the Utility Market consisted of five presentations: ''Technology Advancements to Support Growth in Geothermal Power Sales in a Dynamic Utility Market'' by John E. Mock; ''Geothermal Energy Market in Southern California: Past, Present and Future'' by Vikram Budraja; ''Taking the High Ground: Geothermal's Place in the Revolving Energy Market'' by Richard Jaros; ''Recent Developments in Japan's Hot Dry Rock Program'' by Tsutomu Yamaguchi; and ''Options in the Eleventh Year for Interim Standard Offer Number Four Contracts'' by Thomas C. Hinrichs.
  • Sales of energy management systems have been mixed due to lack of capital funds, lack of confidence in EMS, lack of motivation (as the owner's can pass through increased energy costs to tenants), and the present energy glut (which makes it appear that the energy crisis is over). A responsible EMS offer must include a survey of the building, analysis of its energy history, calculations of savings for EMS functions, estimates of costs of EMS hardware, and a full proposal describing the system. The tight money problem could be tackled by leasing equipment, or by direct vendor financing with sharedmore » savings. The credibility of EMS can be enhanced by affinity groups, better public relations, more demonstration projects, and the establishment of norms.« less
  • The authors give background on the coal injection market for North America outlining the number of furnaces which are currently utilizing coal injection and those planning to implement facilities in the near term. The current highly developed state of coal injection technology emphasizes the reliable economic benefits which can be obtained from the leading technology and system vendors. Key elements for providing successful coal grinding and coal injection technology are: Safe, reliable preparation of coal at constant moisture content; consistent and controllable injection rates; minimum consumption of utility gases and electrical power; reliable long-term operation; minimum and scheduled maintenance; andmore » low labor requirements for maintenance. In today`s operating environment, unless a system fulfills the above requirements, it has very little chance of successful commercial application in the steel industry. Various PCI systems are commercially available. Within this arena, the Dense Phase system has been very successfully received and commands a 65 percent share of the world market.« less

  • This presentation describes the current international market conditions regarding offshore wind, including the breakdown of installation costs, how to reduce costs, and the physical siting considerations considered when planning offshore wind construction. The presentation offers several examples of international existing and planned offshore wind farm sites and compares existing international offshore resources with U.S. resources. The presentation covers future offshore wind trends and cites some challenges that the United States must overcome before it will be able to fully develop offshore wind sites.
