  • National Grid discuss plans for Borehamwood site

    The National Grid are consulting with residents in Borehamwood over the future of a site that used to house the local gasworks.

    Work is currently underway to clear the site, and efforts to break up the gas holders that are located at the Borehamwood site are expected to get underway shortly; it is thought that the work will be completed towards the end of 2015. With the site cleared, plans for redevelopment can go ahead and there are proposals for the site to be used for housing.

    In addition to plans to remove gas holders from the site, gas equipment that is currently being used is to be transferred to another site in the local area.

    Residents and local councillors were at the meeting to hear about plans for the redevelopment of the site. At the meeting, residents had an opportunity to ask questions about the future of the former gasworks and to find out further details of the proposed redevelopment.

    Among those attending was Councillor Clive Butchins, who acts as a representative for the Borehamwood Hillside Ward.

    Commenting on the meeting, Councillor Butchins said:

    “Although it is a shame to lose such a local landmark, I am happy to see the gasholders removed from site to prepare it for a more useful future.”

    Following the meeting, Nadia Dew, Land Regeneration Manager at National Grid said: “It is always great to meet with the site’s neighbours. We hope that people found the session and opportunity to ask questions helpful.”

    She went on to say:  “We’ll continue to keep all our neighbours updated on how our work’s progressing” and she assured residents that the local pedestrian walkway would remain open during the redevelopment phase.

    The National Grid site has a long history in the area and it had once been essential for delivering gas to locals in Borehamwood. In addition, the site had been used for storing gas, but due to modern developments, there is no need for the gasholders so the decision was made to decommission them.

    According to 4-traders.com, the National Grid first told residents about the proposals to redevelop the site back in February 2015.

    As the plans for redevelopment are underway, local residents are invited to continue to give their feedback on plans for the regeneration of the site. Residents are invited to call the community relations team should they have any questions over the plans for the restoration of the Borehamwood site.

  • New solar power farm opens in Vale of Glamorgan

    A new solar far has been opened on a former brownfield site in the Vale of Glamorgan. The 20 acre solar farm was launched by the local MP Alun Cairns and it was built by British Gas for use by Associated British Ports.

    Work began on the site in March 2015; the installation of 15,000 solar panels were completed shortly afterwards.

    Commenting on the opening of the new site, MP Alun Cairns said:

    "The new solar farm on Barry Docks is a fantastic example of maximising the use of industrial space, in a very impressive scheme. The energy partnership between ABP and British Gas will allow Barry Dock to become more competitive in the industry, and the project in the Vale of Glamorgan could become an exciting model for other docks and ports around Great Britain.”

    The opening of the new farm is predicted to produce approximately 4.5 megawatts of green power annually for use by ABP’s port operations. The energy that is produced will also be used by 75 tenants of ABP, and surplus energy is to be sold back to the National Grid.

    The new solar farm is set to lead to a significant reduction in the CO2 emissions, reducing them by 2,000 tonnes annually.

    Representatives from both ABP and British Gas were at the site for the opening, and it has recently been announced that the site has already been nominated for the Wales Green Energy award.

    At the launch, Chris Morrison of British Gas reaffirmed the company’s commitment to greener energy and reducing the impact of carbon stating: stating:

    “This solar farm will generate a significant contribution towards that goal.”

    Solar power in the UK

    The drive towards green power has been welcomed by environmental campaign charities. There are now more than 400 wind farms in the UK and the growth has increased rapidly in recent years. A Press Association report featured in the Guardian shows that there are now 650,000 solar installations being used in the UK.

    However, there has been some concern over the government’s on-going commitment to green energy after it was announced by the Secretary of State for the Environment, Amber Rudd, in July that the Government was to reduce its renewable energy subsidies. The decision to cut green energy subsidies was made amid concerns that they were on course to be higher than had been previously predicted.

  • Report proposes new Office for Energy

    An Energy and Economics consultancy called Vivid Energy has issued a report detailing the need for an Office for Energy.

    The report has the backing of Npower and it sets out how an Office for Energy would provide accurate data and analysis of Britain’s energy sector. It is suggested that the proposed office would either be established as a new organisation or have its base within an already existing organisation.

    Among its duties would be to ensure there will be detailed, impartial analysis of such issues as the low carbon energy sector and it would also examine changes to policies and regulations and how they would affect policy goals.

    However, the proposed new body would not have the power to suggest laws or regulations and its purpose would not be to replace government bodies that are already in existence. Instead, it would provide support for government and regulators and would function in the same way as the Office for Budget Responsibility.

    Commenting on the need to improve consumer confidence in the energy industry, Robin Smale, Director at Vivid Economics, said:

    “The UK energy market has been subject to criticism and controversy, due in part to a lack of analysis that is both trusted and clear. 

    “There is a case for a new role to enhance consumer and investor confidence by providing much needed trusted and clear analysis across the whole of the energy sector. Many stakeholders see value in this new role, and in identifying options for how this role could be delivered.  With the CMA about to report, now is an opportune time to consider it.”

    Other sectors such as healthcare, already have similar body in place and it is suggested that due to the success of these organisations, there would be confidence in a new institution for the energy sector.

    The report argues that while there are already several UK energy institutions, it is perceived they have not always been able to provide a “balanced and clear analysis of key issues across the whole of Britain's energy sector”.

    Paul Massara, CEO of RWE npower said said:

    “Earlier this year I asked Vivid Economics to look at whether there could be a new way to build the debate about energy on a complete foundation of fact and reliable analysis.

    “…An Office of Energy would support and empower a continuing open and transparent debate about the competing issues of the trilemma.”  

  • Valve expo to be held in Abu Dhabi

    Businesses from the power generation, pharmaceutical, oil and gas, food and construction industries are being invited to attend an expo in Abu Dhabi in December. The conference is also open to a wide range of other industries, including the nuclear power sector, agriculture companies and water supply businesses.

    The annual Abu Dhabi expo, which is to be held at the National Exhibition Centre, is considered one of the world’s premier events for professionals in the valves, compressors, pipes and pumps sector.

    The event is predicted to attract approximately 7,000 professionals from more than ten different countries around the world, including the United Kingdom, the United States, Poland, China and Iraq.

    350 companies are expect to attend the popular event, which is held in collaboration with the UAE Contractors Association, Global Fair International and the Abu Dhabi Chamber of Commerce.

    The expo will feature world leaders from the valve industry sector and it provides an opportunity to learn from others’ expertise, and to hear about best practises. Moreover, the expo enables businesses to meet with potential new customers and investors, as well as giving a wider platform for businesses owners to promote their goods.

    In addition, the event will give visitors the chance to see the newest technologies, source new product lines, and the opportunity to meet with a targeted audience,

    Businesses planning to take part in the expo can send exhibits in ahead of the expo; they can be sent in via sea or freight. However, overseas exhibitors are urged to be careful if they are carrying goods as there might be customs fees imposed for doing this, and there are restrictions on carrying foodstuffs.

    In addition, anyone wishing to attend December’s event will need to start planning the visit in plenty of time as a visa might be required. Representatives that want to visit the event will also need to get an invitation from the organisers of the Pumps, Valves, Pipes and Compression Industrial Exhibition as this might help to assist with the visa process.

    The three day expo in Abu Dhabi will run from December 15- 17, 2015.  On Tuesday 15 and Wednesday 16th December the event will run from 10.00am through to 6.00pm, and on Thursday the event will run from 10.00am to 2.00pm.

    Last year’s event proved to be a huge success, attracting more than 6,000 people, and plans are already underway for the 2016 event.
