Energy Sector Hot Issues

Stranded Assets

Over the past year or so, a new concept has entered the global energy lexicon - stranded assets, or those fossil fuel reserves on the books of resource companies and power producers that must be "left in the ground" in order to avoid a calamitous two-plus degrees of global warming by the end of the century.

The concept is a fascinating one in part because more...

Unconventional Gas
Following the unconventional gas boom of the last couple of years in the United States, the search for similar  resources has turned elsewhere – particularly Europe, where large potential indigenous supply is complemented by pervasive gas security concerns and the need to invest in a cleaner, more climate-friendly hydrocarbons portfolio.   more..

 Low CV Export Coals - Use and Markets

Although low Calorific Value (CV) coals often lie outside of the operational specifications of current  power  stations,  they can frequently be blended with higher CV coals in order to create a feed mixture usable by existing boilers.   more...

Keeping Coal in the Portfolio - Clean Coal Policies

When the UK liberalised its power markets from the early 1990’s it was seen as a pioneer in Europe, but, under the new system, generators initially failed to fit clean-up equipment for SOx and NOx, and are now questioning the investment signals for new plant.  more...

Power from Biomass

Faced with the need to make steep carbon emissions cuts under national or transnational mandates, one weapon  countries  have in the arsenal for de-carbonizing their energy portfolios is biomass substitution.   more...

Coalbed Methane

Coalbed Methane (CBM) is formed by the same processes which transform organic material into coal; generally speaking, the deeper and/or higher the rank of the coal, the higher is its methane content. more...

Coal's Geographic Frontiers

Although much of the world's  coal trade originates  from a few established exporters, or is consumed near where it is produced , rising energy demand has spurred new activity in locations long considered less-than-ideal for export development.   more...


Carbon Limiting Technologies

Following  Copenhagen, many nations will be gearing up to significantly reduce their greenhouse gas emissions over the coming decades.   This will mean that  carbon emissions from fossil fuel plants must somehow be slashed.   more...


Strategic Choices

Building successful strategy in the energy sector might be likened to playing a game of chess, where your side's strengths and weaknesses, as well as the opportunities and dangers inherent in each move, must be evaluated beforehand, carefully and with a clear eye.    more...


Creating Emissions Rights

In implementing the Kyoto Protocol, the United Nations has designated two arrangements (or flexibility mechanisms) through which countries can offset emissions within their borders by investing in projects elsewhere.  more...


Coal Sourcing Strategies

For much of a decade, new market dynamics have been redefining historical coal industry norms.    more...
