COVER FOCUS: Industry Forecast

Power Industry Trends and Developments

January is always a good time to look back and reflect on the past year, but more importantly, look ahead and prepare for the future. This article will review some of the major power news stories from 2018 and point to trends expected to affect the industry for years to come. Spoiler alert: renewable energy, distributed generation, and energy storage aren’t just passing fads. Nonetheless, don’t expect more-traditional central power stations to disappear from the mix anytime soon. As the transportation sector electrifies, power will be needed in ever greater amounts. Experts weigh in on possible paths forward.

     

FEATURES

Blockchain for Energy—Transformative Technologies
Emerging energy-related blockchain use cases include decentralized generation, with real-time metering of local power generation and peer-to-peer transaction management; grid management, with data exchanged among devices for service contracts and currencies; electric vehicle charging, with charging stations using blockchain-based smart contracts to authenticate users and manage billing processes; Internet of Things (IoT), identifying new applications for IoT and the connected home market; and metering, with data exchanged among stakeholders of smart grid applications and intelligent control systems. Blockchain allows users to bypass traditional intermediaries in business dealings, lowering and sometimes eliminating transaction costs.

Game-Changing Coal Power Technologies
In the face of fierce competition from natural gas and renewables, the coal industry is seeking to cut costs, tamp down pollutant emissions, and boost flexibility and efficiency at existing and new power plants. This article surveys efforts worldwide to commercialize transformational advanced energy systems and cross-cutting technologies that could give coal power an economic edge.

Is New Technology Nuclear Power’s Future?
Nuclear energy provides carbon-free electricity for a warming world, but is it practical, economic, achievable, and a key to combating global warming? So far, nuclear has fallen short of those goals. Looking at advanced nuclear technologies, it’s not certain that will change.

Complications with Choosing and Feeding Neutralizing Amines in ACCs
It’s no secret that air-cooled condensers (ACC) have unique issues. Given their size, function, and design, corrosion inhibition can be difficult. This article addresses amine selection, the pros and cons of ammonia-only versus organic blends, the final fate of organic amines, and the quandary of feeding neutralizing amines to ACCs.

Establishing a Culture of Continuous Learning and Improvement
Continuous improvement (CI) is the consistent pressure to ensure 100% uptime while extending the life of existing infrastructure and, simultaneously, reducing costs. CI is a goal for most organizations and is an imperative for the power generation industry.

Mercury Remediation System Reduces Wastewater Contamination
With more than 300 coal ash impoundments across the U.S., ionic mercury is a primary concern for power plant wastewater and typically requires costly treatment prior to discharge. A new dissolved mercury removal system was recently demonstrated as a solution for power plant wastewater. The system offers low-cost, reliable remediation proven to address a range of trace metal contaminants, including ionic mercury.

How Air Bearings Moved Tons of Nuclear Waste
Moving heavy loads in the nuclear industry comes with unique challenges, especially when involving high-level radioactive waste stored in specially sealed canisters. A system using wheeled casters and rails is one common method for moving these casks; however, a more-efficient and less-costly alternative some facilities have turned to includes air-bearing-based vehicles.

Why a Single Source Is Best for Chemical-Feed Systems
What is the best way to construct a complete chemical-feed system for use in a power plant, piecing together equipment acquired from a hodgepodge of suppliers or creating a system with components sourced from a single manufacturer? The answer should be obvious, but decision-makers don’t always consider the ramifications of making the wrong choice.
