A recent study envisions a 100% renewable energy world by 2030. Reaching that goal will require 90,000 300-MW solar power plants, 1.7 billion 3-KW roof-mounted photovoltaic units, four million 5-MW wind turbines, plus tidal and geothermal contributions - a daunting path to energy independence. In the meantime, new power generation and electrical distribution technologies, combined with improved efficiencies for existing equipment, are reducing overall energy costs. GlobalSpec's Power Generation & Distribution Equipment event examines efforts to improve day-to-day operational issues affecting power generation efficiencies.
- Learn how climate change and environmental regulations impact a power plant's circulating water system and bottom line operating costs
- Gain a better understanding of new corrosion control methods used for power generation equipment
- Review the latest trends in rubber insulating equipment
- Discover how ultrasonic inspection strategies can improve power plant operations
