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 However, in the past couple of decades, these vertically integrated structures have been replaced by regional wholesale markets.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.

SELGA-COAT® CHROME: Selective Galvanic Plating of Functional Hard Chrome Layers
| By AHC Oberflächentechnik
In nearly all areas of the automotive industry and mechanical engineering, technical hard chrome layers are applied to impart components with a property profile for their intended use: hardness, corrosion resistance, wear resistance, tribological properties, as well as thermal and chemical resistance. The very good tribological behaviour of functional hard chrome layers is indicated by its relatively high original hardness, strong adhesive, constantly renewing oxide layer and anti-adhesive properties. In addition, the metal features a hexagonal lattice micro-structure when plated. Therefore, the wear-intensive frictional surfaces are absent in the micro-structure.

Anodic and Hard-Anodic Aluminium and Magnesium Coatings
| By AHC Oberflächentechnik
For some time now, the trend in the selection of construction materials has moved towards light metals, including aluminium and magnesium alloys. The reasons are obvious: weight reduction above all means energy savings with fewer heavy masses that have to be moved. The more light metal alloys employed in new areas of application, the higher the requirements for wear and corrosion protection. And here is where one of Europe’s leading surface treatment job shop AHC Oberflächentechnik comes into play.

AHC Oil & Gas Coatings
| By AHC Oberflächentechnik
With today's oil & gas exploration pushing deeper, drilling tools have to contend with increasingly demanding conditions. Wear, corrosion and extreme temperatures create one of the most demanding environments known to design engineers. Making matters worse, remote and offshore locations add a logistic challenge that requires your equipment to outperform and keep on drilling. Engineered surface treatments can do an incredible job protecting equipment in harsh environments, giving you that edge required to operate faster, longer and safer.
