INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS FOR A SUSTAINABLE ENERGY FUTURE In a bid to maintain steady production while maintaining the highest HSE standards, ADNOC & its Group of Companies endeavor to adopt all technological innovations to continue their productivity standards. To achieve this mission, ADNOC & its Group of Companies have embarked on several ambitious projects including the introduction of improved Enhanced Oil Recovery techniques and building artificial islands to boost their production capacity from 2.8 million bbl/day of oil with condensates now, to 3.8 million bbl/day by 2020. Along with their renowned international partners, ADNOC Group will seek to acquire and deploy state-of-the-art and proven technologies to meet their long term objectives. Being committed to playing an important role in the global oil market, ADNOC & its Group of Companies utilize all available technologies to enhance oil production capacity and at the same time deploy best reservoir management schemes to ensure and safeguard controlled depletion of the oil reserves. In response to this growing challenge, we have made significant achievements to diversify Abu Dhabi’s energy supply, with emphasis on enhancing natural gas production from our gas reserves. Being aware of the global challenges to meet oil and gas demands, we are actively improving our operations to protect and enhance both the community and environment.

climate. Extensive testing was conducted in the US, and a dry environment like Texas allows for an optimum life span, whereas somewhere like Florida it would be around 200 years.

What is the amount of recycled content? When we buy steel we can dictate the amount of recycled content. With clients like Masdar, for example, at times they requested 100 per cent recycled content for their thermal breaking project. We also prefer to buy locally wherever possible as part of our commitment to the environment. When no local product that matches our specifications is available, we source from India, China or Japan. We also carry out our own tests on the product we buy and insist on steel mill certification for a guarantee of quality. There is no legislation in place as regards how much recycled content we must use, but we try and use as much as possible, usually not less than 50 per cent.

What other sustainable materials are you looking at? We used to use cement fibreboards for interior and exterior cladding, but this is highly unsustainable so we have begun the switch to a magnesium-based

The sustainability battle will be won - or lost - in the cities Charbel Aoun, Senior Vice President, Smart Cities, Schneider Electric Cities are growing – and so are their challenges

Collaboration is what makes a city smart

Cities today contain 50% of the world’s population, account for 75% of global energy consumption and give off 80% of greenhouse gas emissions.

Each city is unique – from history to size via availability of resources and complexity of urban development. So its ambition will be unique too: to host a major event, expand, relieve pain points, or just to plan its future. And each city is a complex value-chain - involving not only local and regional governments and inhabitants, but also private companies, utilities, real estate developers as well as investors. So one thing is sure: as cities embark on their own journey to “smart”, they need to bring in all their stakeholders, including the private sector, from the start. This calls for a new approach that combines public governance, citizen inclusion, and business collaboration. It is about making multiple stakeholders work together with a collaborative mindset, united by a shared vision of efficiency and sustainability, under strong public leadership.

By 2050, they will be home to 70% of the people in the world. This means that over the next 40 years we need to provide new urban capacity equivalent to that of the past 4,000 years. As the world wonders how to meet the growing demand for energy and resources, while drastically reducing global carbon emissions, one thing is clear: this energy-climate battle will be won, or lost, in the cities. Cities are facing growing challenges: scarcity of resources such as energy and water; pollution; aging and overloaded infrastructure; traffic congestion; and crime. Yet cities need to compete for talents, jobs and investments, while reducing their costs and managing their debt. Efficiency helps to do more with less.

Technology and integration make cities efficient At Schneider Electric, we are working with more than 200 cities worldwide. This is why we understand that making cities sustainable is both a vertical and horizontal challenge. The vertical challenge refers to the most pressing issues facing the many urban infrastructure domains – mobility, energy, water, services, buildings, and public security. For each domain, strong technical and process expertise is required to design an effective solution and ensure data accuracy. Take a major city in Brazil. Over the past ten years, Telvent, our information services company, has provided the municipality with a complete infrastructure management solution. Eleven different control centres manage all parts of the city’s critical infrastructure: electricity, water, oil, gas, public transportation and traffic, air quality, airports, etc. This was made possible by our thorough understanding of the operations involved in each domain The horizontal challenge is about making the sum greater than its parts. It requires a holistic approach to interconnect all these smarter vertical domains. Interconnection means both technical integration of legacy systems and open platforms. Improved real-time data collection, when interconnected, will help city authorities to better manage, optimize, and make faster decisions,

At Schneider Electric, we believe no single company can solve a city’s challenges alone. We advocate flexible, customized and localized solutions, developed with best-in-class global and local partners.

We know what it take and we help to make it happen At Schneider Electric, we want to help cities build the vision, develop the roadmap, and deliver efficient and sustainable urban infrastructures. design innovative financing models, clever collaborative approaches. each city become smarter – in its own way. We achieve this: By providing innovative, expert solutions in energy, mobility, water, buildings, and public services. By tailoring our solutions ot each city’s unique needs. By bringing our recognized integration capabilities. And by partnering with others. The sustainability battle will be won, or lost, in the cities. At Schneider Electric, we want to help win this battle.

Carbon offset kudos for WFES 2014 BP and Masdar help seventh edition of global event become the lowest carbon energy summit to date The success of any partnership is built on common goals and values, and BP is proud to be working with Masdar to deliver the lowest carbon WFES yet. BP’s not-for-profit integrated carbon management programme, BP Target Neutral is the 2014 Summit’s official carbon offset partner. BP Target Neutral is using the expertise garnered as a result of its role as carbon offset partner of the London 2012 Olympic Games to reduce and neutralise, or offset, the greenhouse gas emissions associated with all delegate travel to WFES. Independently commended for its approach to carbon offsetting, a report by Thomson Reuters Point Carbon found that BP Target Neutral ‘sets a new bar for the major events industry and BP should be congratulated for its programme design in this regard.’ Using a robust methodology to calculate the emissions resulting from travel to WFES, BP Target Neutral will offset these emissions through its portfolio of rigorously selected best-in-class carbon credits.

Keynote Panel – The Business of Clean Energy What is the effect of the current global economic climate on the energy landscape and the business of sustainability? Has the rate of uptake of renewable energy technologies slowed? What are the factors behind this trend and does it still make economic sense to invest in renewable energy? How can NGO’s, businesses and the finance community work together to deliver a more sustainable future, whilst making good business sense and driving economic growth. Moderator: David Sandalow, Inaugural Fellow, Center on Global Energy Policy, Columbia University, United States of America Speakers: Marie-Jose Nadeau, President World Energy Council Christof Ruehl, Group Chief Economist and Vice President, BP Global, UK Jean-Pascal Tricoire, CEO Schneider Electric, France Maria van de Hoeven, Executive Director, International Energy Agency (IEA) Naoko Ishii, CEO and Chairperson of the Global Environment Facility (GEF), USA

Where is economic growth going to come from and who are the contenders for the next economic power house? With continued signs that the BRIC countries of Brazil, Russia, India and China are facing a slow-down in investment and battling inflation, which countries are lining up to be the next economic power houses and how are they investing in energy? Economies in Europe, USA and Japan appear to be recovering and tentatively starting to grow, but are they investing in sustainable energy technologies or sticking to carbon-intensive fuels? What are the energy opportunities for Africa from this shift away from the traditional economic powerhouses? Is the continent considered to be sufficiently stable and open for investment? What are the implications for the development agenda – can poverty alleviation be driven through energy and water security. Speakers: James Cameron, Founder Climate Change Capital, UK Philippe de Fontaine Vive, Vice President, European Investment Bank Peggy Liu, Chairperson, JUCCCE, China Dimitris Tsitsiragos, Vice President, Europe, Central Asia, Middle East & North Africa, International Finance Corporation, USA

Technology on show Check out the brand new TechTalk seminar series for a behind-thescenes look at the latest industry technologies, R&D, policy developments, investment opportunities and new projects 1445-1500 hrs Topic: Using Solar to Power Enhanced Oil Recovery – Integrating Renewable and Traditional Energy Speaker: Rod MacGregor, CEO, GlassPoint, USA “GlassPoint’s solar steam generators produce emissions-free steam for thermal enhanced oil recovery (EOR). Traditionally, thermal EOR burns massive amounts of natural gas to create steam, which is injected into the reservoir to loosen the oil making it easier to extract. GlassPoint technology can reduce the need for natural gas by up to 80 per cent, reducing carbon emissions and freeing gas for higher value uses. If just one per cent of the steam used at today’s oilfields was produced using solar energy, the reduction in carbon emissions would be larger than the emissions saved from all the electric vehicles ever built. “This presentation introduces our Enclosed Trough technology, which was designed specifically for harsh oilfield environments. Using solar power to generate steam for EOR is quite different from using solar power to generate electricity. There are no solar panels in a GlassPoint system. Instead, large mirrors are protected inside a glasshouse enclosure. The the need for the know-how of different stakeholders has to be taken into

“My presentation covers these thematic areas with a unique PPP model of a ‘solutions oriented’ partnership involving Canadian and GCC/MENA countries/utilities/industry.  “The development of new innovative technologies in the smart grid/energy area is increasingly centered on the SME sector space. SMEs offer cutting-edge solutions, a distributed architecture - as opposed to a central plant framework of yesterday - and are very scalable. However, there is no single unified global standard to which these can be developed, manufactured and tested. Each part of the world, and its local regions, sees such technology adoption from their own policy, and capacity framework leading to differing rates of adoption/adaptations. Hence local validation becomes a require-

ment in the form of field pilot demonstrations to fine-tune ‘local solutions’. “This validation requires a collaborative approach - often multi-disciplinary and multi-stakeholder - as opposed to a single vendor or a traditional supply chain approach. Utilities are finding this change difficult due to their traditional vertical business models influenced by traditional regulatory frameworks.”

1600-1615 hrs Topic: Prepare(d) for Impact: Silicon-based Photovoltaics from Niche to Terawatts Speaker: Prof. Wim Sinke – Programme Development Manager Solar Energy, ECN, The Netherlands “Silicon photovoltaics has a history spanning more than half a century. It has shown impressive progress in terms of cost and performance and has a very strong position in the global market. Nevertheless it still has great potential for further improvement. Recent technology developments and industry innovations in which ECN and its partners have played a major role will be reviewed and an outlook on the longer term will be presented. “Key elements are the use of new materials, integrated cell and module designs, product differentiation e.g. for building integration and desert power plants, and enhanced sustainability. “Some important challenges that the industry faces are the deployment of solar energy on a large scale in a region with low conventional energy prices, and how to build a globally competitive manufacturing industry in a region without a track record in this sector. On the other hand, opportunities include the excellent solar resource and determined ambition to develop a

strong solar energy sector.”

1630-1645 hrs Topic: Delivering High Efficiency through Combined Cycle Technology and Further Developments Speaker: Fernando González Allende – Power and Environment Proposal Manager, SENER, Spain “Since the company’s beginnings, SENER has been a pioneer in the renewable energies field, developing new methods in the treatment of Municipal Solid Waste (MSW), liquid manure, solar thermal, biomass and regeneration of used oils. “SENER is a specialist in turnkey Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contracts and has wide experience in the development of power plants. We also have strong R&D&I capacity, which has earned us an outstanding reputation in generation and efficient use of energy. “In recent years, SENER has developed several configurations for steam thermal cycles, protected by patents with the design criteria confirmed in actual operation. The main goal of these technological developments is to maximise the electrical output, avoiding at the same time the corrosion problems that appear during combustion of biomass or waste. The result has been overcome using well-proven equipment, suitably adapted to an innovative arrangement. “The first application of these advanced solutions has been the ZABALGARBI project, promoted by SENER in Bilbao. ZABALGARBI is today a private-public partnership company that treats the MSW of the province of Biscay with one of our clean, high performance energy recovery systems.

Zabal Garbi Project promoted by SENER in Bilbao

The operational and economic success of ZABALGARBI is an unavoidable reference for any project that intends to hybridise a state-of-the-art environmental processing of the waste with power production using other fuels.” ¢

The first is the Vestas database on wind, the world’s foremost repository of information about when, where, and how it blows. The second is a knowledge base of need.
