Cogeneration & On-site Power Production’s upcoming March-April issue is packed with information, analysis and case studies on CHP and on-site power around the world. Here’s a sneak peek at what we’ll be covering in the print and digital editions.

On-site solar photovoltaic plant at Devi Ahilyabai Holkar Airport in Indore, India

In the spirit of POWER-GEN India & Central Asia, coming up in May, we focus on India’s turn to on-site solar to power its airports. Projects underway to install captive photovoltaic power systems at many of the country’s airports are exploiting innovative funding models and long-term power purchase agreements. However, writes our correspondent in New Delhi, there are clouds on the horizon.

Next, we explore the latest advances in gas turbine diagnostics, reviewing up-to-the-minute developments in monitoring and analysis for gas turbine-based CHP systems.

Our case study of a coal-fired CHP system redesigned to run on biomass presents the modifications necessary to make the switch. At Dong Energy’s Studstrupvaerket CHP power station, Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems Europe is in the process of converting unit 3 to run on 100% biomass wood pellets – which takes some fine tuning.

Trevor Atkins

Finally, in our new Executive Profile section we talk with Trevor Atkins, Head of Operations at Veolia’s specialist packaged CHP firm Cogenco. Trevor is retiring this year after 25 years in the industry, and we pick his brain on the market, the technology and advice to new entrants. We’ll be speaking with a thought leader in the cogeneration and on-site power industry in each issue going forward, so watch this space!
