Power: a practical handbook
FMT are delighted to announce the publication of "power: a practical handbook", which includes a chapter by one of the firm's principals, Neil C Schofield.
From the cover of the book: "With world electricity demand expected to double by 2030, the power sector is under increasing pressure to modernise and rise to the challenge of meeting global needs. While some countries are pressing ahead with conventional fossil-fuel based generation as a means of quickly meeting the needs of their rapidly expanding economies, in other countries the push for decarbonisation and diversification of the energy supply mix is beginning to take place at a rapid pace.
Power: A Practical Handbook is aimed at readers looking for a single source which focuses on the key issues, with an emphasis on the practical approach to those issues in the real world. It is a comprehensive guide to understanding the commercial, economic and legal principles that underpin the power sector.
Topics covered include significant energy policies in recent years; an explanation of industry structures and legal frameworks; economic perspectives on market liberalisation and the regulation of monopoly power networks; a look at conventional and renewables generation technologies and the issues arising from those; and smart meters and smart grids.
The book also covers subjects connected to the development of power projects including financing issues, construction, operation and maintenance arrangements, fuel supply agreements, approaches to power offtake, electricity trading and environmental issues".
Copies of the book can be bought directly from Amazon.co.uk
