Why You Should Attend

Flexible Power Generation 2016

Marcus evans Flexible Power Generation 2016 offers the most up-to-date and informative conference on the subject, shedding light on operators’ on-going concerns and projects across the whole region. Utilities and Power Plants are aiming to reach successful and cost-effective solutions for highly flexible new and existing fossil fuel power plants (including those using dispatchable renewable fuels), capable of meeting demand peaks and renewable output reductions at minimal fuel consumption and emissions, while mitigating the effects of cycling operation to avoid excessive service life expenditure, and not impeding the potential CO2 capture readiness of the power plants.

European power consumption is continuing to grow and with it, its dependency on variable renewable sources. To ensure a sustainable, reliable and affordable power market, the existing system needs to be complemented by dispatchable, dynamic capacity with the capability of handling frequent fast starts, stops and load ramps.  As a consequence, traditional power plants are increasingly required to operate across the entire load range with high load-change velocities, and even operate in start/stop mode with full turndown and very fast re-start, all at minimal fuel consumption. This forces base-load plants to operate closer to their design limits and through significantly more thermal cycles, leading to increased rate of wear on plant components.

Operational flexibility therefore still presents a significant challenge for fossil fuel and CHP power plants.
