Before electrons can be sent through the grid, before customers can turn on the light switch, before vehicles and appliances can be electrified, electricity generation must take center stage. Thus, when evaluating the industry-wide trends and advances, it all starts with Power Generation, the focus of this month’s Energy Central Special Issue Series titled - Power Generation Realities & Trends – from Renewables to Hydropower to Nuclear to Hydrogen and Beyond.
Different geographies, customer-utility relationships, regulatory frameworks, and more will determine what the local generation scene looks like. And excitingly, those generation mixes are constantly evolving—from decarbonization efforts to move away from fossil fuels to distributed energy resources putting generation in the hands of the ‘prosumers to new advancements in nuclear, hydrogen, and other emerging technologies continuing to transform the landscape.
To gain a true understanding of the power generation landscape, we asked the community to share and report on the vital trends in power generation - trends that industry professionals should follow. And you all delivered, as always!
I hope you will set aside some time today, tomorrow, this weekend, or whenever you can to peruse through the best Power Generation Realities & Trends articles submitted by your peers who are telling you what they’ve had success in implementing recently, what unexpected hurdles they’ve encountered thanks to an evolving power generation mix, and where industry leaders see the future of generation going!
And, of course, this Special Issue isn’t just content to consume, but rather it’s the start of many different conversations.
