High Voltage Cable Systems: When & Where They are Useful
High voltage (HV) cable system construction and installation varies dramatically depending on the cable technology used, system requirements and localized special site conditions. This session shares how we evaluate the planning considerations for underground transmission lines, and when and where HV cable systems can be used appropriately by effectively balancing costs and environmental considerations.
Renewable Integration into the Transmission System
There has been an increase in the pace of deployment of large-scale renewable generation assets which interconnect into the transmission system. This session reviews the process of interconnecting renewable generation to the transmission system, planning and execution considerations to meet interconnect requirements, anticipated transmission grid constraints with additional renewable generation and planning considerations as they pertain to renewable plant equipment.
Commercial and Industrial Solar Expansion in Southeast Asia
Commercial and industrial rooftop solar PV projects are expanding rapidly in Southeast Asia. Trillions of dollars of new assets are expected to be deployed in the next decade, driven by attractive cost savings, access to third-party financing and growing focus on sustainability. This session shares how Black & Veatch is leveraging the ENACT SYSTEMS digital platform to rapidly assess commercial and industrial project opportunities.
Biomass and Waste-to-Energy Plant Design Fundamentals
Biomass and Waste-to-Energy power plant design requires a fundamental knowledge of feedstock characteristics, which in turn drives conversion technology selection. This session will highlight some of the key feedstock characteristics, plant design parameters, and technical considerations for co-firing / repowering of existing coal generation assets.
Renewable Energy Variability: Solutions for Grid Stability
Renewable electricity generation is the lowest cost form of new power production in most parts of the world and across many parts of Asia. Renewable resources, solar and wind, are by nature variable. This session will highlight the various renewable energy resources, the nature of variability, conventional and new flexible grid stability solutions, as well as sharing a few BESS Hybrid case studies in the region.
Plant Modernization Services in View of Tightening Efficiency, Emissions & Load Flexibility Regulations for Power Generation Assets in Asia
Plant modernization is a cost-effective solution to extend the useful life, improve the efficiency, environmental performance, reliability and flexibility of operating power facilities. The modernization strategy is also viewed as an effective alternative to the construction of new power assets. This session will highlight critical operational challenges for power utilities’ today and offer major technical insights and operational best practices from 50+ plant modernization projects executed within Asia in the recent years.
Hydrogen Market Overview
Hydrogen is a versatile fuel, feedstock, and energy carrier for a host of different applications. Black & Veatch is currently involved in many aspects of the hydrogen value chain across the globe and has been involved as a consultant and engineering, procurement, and construction contractor for many projects that involve hydrogen. This session covers the overview and future market trends of hydrogen.
Non-Wires Alternatives: Integrated Solutions for Reliability, Resiliency and Financial Certainty
A session covering various types of Non-Wires Alternatives to traditional grid infrastructure projects. Elaborating how these types of technologies can help utilities and private enterprises, with a discussion of how to evaluate, execute and control in order to solve reliability and grid constraint issues and build a more flexible grid network. During this webinar, we also share several NWA success cases across US and Asia region; and highlight the types of key benefits for Asia.
Monitoring Maintenance of Distributed Infrastructure
A session covering the different market offerings monitoring and maintenance provides leveraging on Black & Veatch’s ASSET360™ data analytics platform. How it helps to simplify asset performance management for asset owners; putting data to work to detect emerging risks, minimize unplanned downtime, enhance efficiency and improve planning effectiveness.
Energy Storage Plus Gas Turbines - Improving Grid Flexibility
With the increased introduction of variable renewable generation, compounding the traditional variability in electric loads, the need for generating assets that are flexible (fast starting and rapid ramping) is growing. Hybrid systems, pairing a generator with storage, are proven solutions that improve grid flexibility. This discussion covered battery energy storage coupled with gas turbines assets.
Hot Topics When Considering Solar PV and Battery Energy Storage Projects
A discussion on current topics that are being considered when planning, developing, and implementing solar PV and battery energy storage projects. Specifically, they will be diving into considerations for the adoption of bi-facial PV module technology on solar PV project design and performance, and the addition of battery energy storage to solar-based renewable power generation projects.
