Generating Electricity in a Carbon-Constrained World

Generating Electricity in a Carbon-Constrained World

The electric power sector is what keeps modern economies going, and historically, fossil fuels provided the bulk of the energy need to generate electricity, with coal a dominant player in many parts of the world. Now with growing concerns about global climate change, this historical dependence on fossil-fuels, especially those rich in carbon, are being questioned. Examining the implications of the industry's future in a carbon-constrained world, a distinct reality, is the subject of this book.

Containing contributions from renowned scholars and academics from around the world, this book explores the various energy production options available to power companies in a carbon-constrained world. The three part treatment starts with a clear and rigorous exposition of the short term options including Clean Coal and Carbon Capture and Sequestration Technology, Coal, and Emission trading. Renewable energy options such as Nuclear Energy, Wind power, Solar power, Hydro-electric, and Geothermal energy are clearly explained along with their trade-offs and uncertainties inherent in evaluating and choosing different energy options and provides a framework for assessing policy solutions.

This is followed by self-contained chapters of case-studies from all over the world. Other topics discussed in the book are Creating markets for tradable permits in the emerging carbon era, Global Action on Climate Change, The Impossibility of Staunching World CO2 Emissions and Energy efficiency.

Godalming electric supply station*

Here is a contemporary drawing of the installation. The artist understands about the water wheel and pulley shaft drive but not the generator so that only just gets in the picture. The Mill lighting was given free of charge as compensation for using their water rights.
In December, water power was abandoned but Siemens kept the system going and in January 1882 accepted an offer to light the town, transferring the generating plant from the Mill to the town. Siemens laid main cables in the gutter as there was no legal power to break up streets. The Swan lamps were now working satisfactorily.
The supply was successful and continued on an annual contract until 16 April 1884, when Alexander Siemens reviewed the potential for private sales with a view to obtaining a license under the Electric Lighting Act 1882. He then had a few dozen consumers with about 160 lamps - probably four arc lamps and 60 or 70 Swan lamps for street lighting and 90 to 100 private lights in about a few dozen shops mid houses. As there was no prospect of extending the system to the 400-500 private lights needed to make it economic, the supply was shut down and gas lighting reintroduced on 1 May 1884. Electricity supply did not return until 1901.

Aberdulais Falls, near Neath, South Wales.

This has been a site of industry for over 420 years - copper smelting was started here in 1584. Later there were grain and fulling mills as well as an iron working forge. In 1830 the site became a tin plate works and it is the remains of this that can be seen today.

The water wheel which is based on the design of the original, powers a generator which produces enough electricity to run the site, including the visitor centre and lifts for wheelchair access to all parts of the site. This is the largest water wheel powered generating plant in Europe.

However, buried 7 metres below the surface is also a modern 200Kw hydro electric turbine generator which produces electricity for the National Grid and helps to fund the conservation and archealogical work carried out by the National Trust on the site.
