Webinar looks at benefits of renewables, hydrogen in power gen
06 November 2023
A variety of fuel types are being explored to ensure backup power systems and microgrids can deliver efficient, reliable energy in mission-critical applications. Renewable fuels, including renewable diesel (RD), RD-biodiesel blends and hydrogen, have come to the forefront as leading alternatives for today and tomorrow’s engine power plants and energy solutions.
The webinar “Future Fuels and their Role in Future-proofing Power Generation”, which will take place November 16, at 9 a.m. CST/4 p.m. CET, will address the opportunities such fuels offer in the decarbonization of backup power used in data center, hospitals, military and other generator applications, as well as in microgrid power systems.
Carl Richers, vice president of product management & marketing for INNIO’s Jenbacher division, will discuss how engine-based power plants can be designed to support a smooth transition from pipeline gas to hydrogen. His presentation will describe the benefits of high-efficiency CHP (Combined Heat and Power) and how a flexible CHP solution can be designed to meet future demands as a complement to renewables. He will also showcase several existing hydrogen and hydrogen CHP project examples.
Richers has led INNIO’s Jenbacher product management and strategic marketing since 2019. In his role, he is responsible for allocating the development budget, positioning the Jenbacher products and defining the brand’s strategy.
Tammy Klein, founder and CEO of Transport Energy Strategies, will discuss findings of the white paper “The Benefits of Renewable Bio-Based Diesel Fuels”, authored by Klein on behalf of the Engine Technology Forum. The white paper details the production, consumption, future growth and volume potential of alternative fuels such as biodiesel and RD, as well as the growing interest in the fuels by users as a means to preserve existing generator sets used as backup power, while addressing new decarbonization demands.
Transport Energy Strategies is a consultancy that provides market and policy intelligence, research analysis and strategic advice to clients on a range of global transport energy issues. Klein runs a member-based consulting service, the Transport Energy Outlook, which provides research analysis and competitive intelligence on global trends for clients across a range of sectors.
