Chairman introduction: Renewable fuels in generationSession
Renewables is much more than just wind and solar. You can also expect to hear about projects involving in biomass, biogas, waste to energy or anaerobic digestion. These are also carbon neutral if used 100% as fuel but now coal plants are switching to biofuels (wood pellets) or co-firing along with coal. Other technologies using aspects of conventional technologies e.g. rotating equipment include hydropower and tidal energy schemes. How can these projects get off the ground? Where is the finance coming from and what’s new in terms of technology?
