Research and Markets: Top Ten Global Energy Trends in 2010

Research and Markets: Top Ten Global Energy Trends in 2010
DUBLIN- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/3c4ef9/top_ten_global_ene) has announced the addition of Global Markets Direct's new report "Top Ten Global Energy Trends in 2010" to their offering.


“Top Ten Global Energy Trends in 2010”
"Top Ten Global Energy Trends in 2010" provides an in-depth analysis of the top global trends in the energy sector in 2010 with challenges and future prospects for the overall industry. The report provides critical analysis of the various trends in the different segments of the energy industry including oil and gas upstream and downstream, unconventional and offshore oil and gas sectors, nuclear energy, alternative energy, electricity sector and coal sector. The report also provides deal analysis of the oil and gas, nuclear and alternative energy sectors. The major areas of focus include impact of the financial crisis and the after effects of the crisis and the global economic recession on the energy sector. Challenges in conventional as well as non conventional energy sector, technological developments in new and alternative energy sectors and the nuclear industry are also analyzed. The global economic recovery and the impact on the capital expenditure in the petroleum industry in 2010, growing trend towards the offshore oil and gas industry and the approach of the oil and gas companies to prepare for the upturn are some of the other issues that have been analyzed in the report. The report highlights and analyses the most critical trends or issues in the global energy sector in 2010.
Global Total Energy Consumption Is Expected To Recover In 2010
The total energy consumption in the OECD economies is expected to continue to witness a decreased growth in 2009. However, with the global economy expected to recover in 2010, energy consumption in the OECD economies is expected to grow. The improving economic conditions in 2009 and the expected recovery in 2010 will further drive the growth in energy consumption in these economies.
Global Corporate M&A And Asset Transactions In The E&P Sector Are Likely To Witness A Rise While Other Energy Sectors Lag In 2010
The uncertainty in the global economic outlook, highly volatile commodity prices and tight credit availability had a negative effect on the deal activity thereby decreasing the deal activity in the later part of 2008. Since then, the commodity prices have been increasing and the global economy is showing some signs of recovery from the recession. Global economy is expected to grow at a positive rate in 2010. These factors and comparatively lower asset valuations is expected to usher a new wave of merger and acquisition in the upstream oil and gas industry by the end of 2010.
Crude Oil And Natural Gas Prices And Thereby E&P Capital Expenditure Are Expected To Witness An Upward Trend In 2010
Capital expenditure of oil and gas companies after surging from 2007 to 2008 has witnessed a significant decrease in 2009. However, in 2010 capital expenditure activity is expected to go up, driven mainly by large National Oil Companies. With oil prices starting to stabilize at $60-80 per barrel level and as the economic intervention by the governments across the globe takes effect, oil and gas companies are expected to increase investments in 2010. However, these plans of 2010 and beyond are largely dependent on the commodity prices, demand-supply and reduced costs of oil services.
Electricity Consumption And Generation Is Expected To Increase In 2010 With Increasing Focus On Smart Grid Implementation In Major Consuming Markets
Global electricity generation is expected to continue to increase in the years to come. In 2008, 19.53 Trillion KWh of electricity was generated. Worldwide electricity generation is expected to increase to 20.26 Trillion KWh in 2009 and further to 21.0 Trillion KWh in 2010. The growth in the electricity generation can be attributed to increase in the population and economic growth in the emerging economies and a corresponding increase in the usage of electricity for residential, commercial as well as industrial purposes.
Nuclear Energy Will Continue To Increase Its Role In The Energy Mix And Is Likely To Attract Increased Investments In 2010
The global economic downturn is likely to have limited effect on the nuclear industry due to the long term nature of the nuclear projects. Further, with the long term nuclear plans of a number of emerging countries and the recent trend toward small and medium reactors, the nuclear industry might witness an increase in investments once the global economy recovers in 2010.
Increased Focus On Clean Alternative Energy And Alternative Fuels Is Expected To Attract Investments To The Sector In 2010
The need to achieve energy stability, security of energy supply and energy independence combined with the demand to minimize carbon footprints is driving countries across the world to explore different renewable energy technologies. Battling climate change is as much a concern for most world governments as achieving energy independence and security. This has forced governments to come up with schemes and policy frameworks supporting the promotion and development of renewable energy. With the global economy expected to be in a better shape in 2010, the renewable energy industry is expected to continue to grow.
Refining Sector Will Continue To Experience A Downturn Fuelled By Low Refining Margins In 2010
The global refining industry is witnessing a slump following the global economic downturn after a high return period in the past few years. Uncertain product demand due to the global economic downturn, decreasing refinery margins and a surplus refining capacity are having a combined negative effect on the profitability of refining operations. These trends will continue to cast a shadow of uncertainty over the future of refinery margins thereby making the refining sector unattractive for the integrated oil companies in the short term.
New And Emerging Frontiers Will Increasingly Add To The Supply Of Oil And Gas In 2010
Unconventional oil and gas projects are attracting increased attention in the wake of the inevitable production decline in the more traditional oil and gas resources and the volatility in the oil market. The expected recovery of the global economy in 2010 and the rise in the commodity prices will increase the attractiveness of the unconventional and offshore oil and gas sectors. Consequently, the share of oil and gas production from unconventional as well as offshore resources will continue to increase in 2010.
Ambiguity Over Climate Change Policies And Framework Will Continue To Cast A Shadow Of Uncertainty Over The Energy Markets In 2010
In order for the industry to comply with the climate change policies, significant costs need to be incurred by the energy companies. Also, the companies would have to eventually diversify into clean energy sources. Nonetheless, the global economies are not even in the initial stages of agreeing to a global climate policy which would enforce emission cuts. This has created a lot of uncertainty on the effect of the policy measures on the energy industry.
Coal Will Continue To Be A Major Source Of Energy In 2010 Especially In Coal Rich Countries Albeit The Focus On Climate Change
The global economic slowdown is expected to have very little effect on the consumption and production of coal. The popularity of coal can be attributed to its huge availability and lower costs as compared to natural gas and oil. In recent years, there has been a greater shift towards nuclear and other cleaner sources of energy to reduce the dependence on fossil fuels, especially coal. Nevertheless coal is expected to be the preferred choice for years to come.

DEUTSCHE BANK (NYSE: DB) COMPLETES 250-KW SOLAR PROJECT AT PISCATAWAY FACILITY

DEUTSCHE BANK (NYSE: DB) COMPLETES 250-KW SOLAR PROJECT AT PISCATAWAY FACILITY

New Jersey Project Part of Deutsche Bank’s Commitment to be Carbon Neutral by 2012

PISCATAWAY, N.J. & NEW YORK, Dec. 17, 2009 – Deutsche Bank (NYSE: DB) today announced the completion of a 250-kilowatt solar photovoltaic (PV) system at its Piscataway, NJ, office. The roof-mounted array will offset a portion of the facility’s electricity consumption and reduce its carbon emissions by 143 metric tons annually, equivalent to 16,232 gallons of gasoline.

The solar installation consists of 1,066 roof-mounted PV modules that will generate approximately 270,000 kWh per year at the 83,000-square-foot Piscataway facility. The solar installation is capable of providing nearly 100 percent of the facility’s demand for power from the grid during peak daylight hours, and it will produce more than 12 percent of the electricity needed to operate the facility annually. An online energy monitoring system will track the facility’s power consumption, solar production and system efficiency.

The system was designed and installed by Vanguard Energy Partners, a New Jersey-based leader in the design and installation of large-scale solar electric systems. The solar installation is part of Deutsche Bank’s global commitment to be carbon neutral by 2012. As part of that program, the Bank has reduced its annual energy consumption by 19 million kWh in the Americas and 54 million kWh globally through a wide range of efficiency measures. Of the remaining global energy consumption, 67 percent comes from renewable sources, with 100 percent of the energy in the US, UK, Italy, Switzerland and Germany coming from renewables.


In the US Deutsche Bank also was one of three firms to be named a “Green Power Partner of the Year” by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) at its 2009 Green Power Leadership Awards, which are cosponsored by the US Department of Energy and the Center for Resource Solutions. “Deutsche Bank is committed to being a leader in sustainability, and this project is a small part of a comprehensive global program to both reduce our consumption and shift to renewable sources,” said Seth Waugh, CEO of Deutsche Bank Americas. Deutsche Bank utilized both state and federal programs designed to encourage investment in renewable energy sources, including New Jersey Solar Renewable Energy Certificates (SREC) and US federal renewable energy investment credits, part of the “green stimulus” package passed this year by the US Congress. The incentives were essential to make the investment in this new technology financially viable.

DOE Fact Sheet: Clean Energy Technology Announcements

DOE Fact Sheet: Clean Energy Technology Announcements

At the Copenhagen climate conference, on behalf of President Obama, Energy Secretary Steven Chu announced the launch of a new initiative to promote clean energy technologies in developing countries. Secretary Chu also welcomed progress under the Major Economies Forum on Energy and Climate (MEF) and invited his counterparts in MEF and other countries to a first-ever Clean Energy Ministerial next year.


Climate REDI
Secretary Chu today announced the launch of a new Renewables and Efficiency Deployment Initiative (Climate REDI). The program will accelerate deployment of renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies in developing countries – reducing greenhouse gas emissions, fighting energy poverty and improving public health for the most vulnerable, particularly women and children.
Climate REDI includes three new clean energy technology programs and funding needed to launch a renewable energy program under the World Bank’s Strategic Climate Fund:
•The Solar and LED Energy Access Program will accelerate deployment of affordable solar home systems and LED lanterns to those without access to electricity. This program will yield immediate economic and public health benefits by providing households with low-cost and quality-assured solar alternatives to expensive and polluting kerosene. •The Super-efficient Equipment and Appliance Deployment Program will harness the market and convening power of MEF countries to improve efficiency for appliances traded throughout the world. A number of MEF countries have implemented, or are exploring, incentive programs for energy-efficient appliances. Coordinating incentives, standards and labeling systems can create unprecedented economies of scale for these appliances. •The Clean Energy Information Platform will establish an online platform for MEF countries to exchange technical resources, policy experience and the infrastructure to coordinate various activities in deploying clean energy technologies, and share this information with the world.•The Scaling-up Renewable Energy Program (S-REP), under the World Bank’s Strategic Climate Fund, will provide policy support and technical assistance to low-income countries developing national renewable energy strategies and underwrite additional capital costs associated with renewable energy investments. Funding through Climate REDI will accelerate the launch of S-REP.Climate REDI is a “quick-start” initiative to complement the much broader technology and finance mechanisms of an international climate agreement. It will promote dissemination of clean energy technologies through the following tools:

1.Quality assurance to guard developing country consumers against sub-standard renewable energy products;2.Minimum efficiency standards to remove the lowest efficiency appliances from the market;3.Labeling to guide consumers to quality-assured and high-efficiency products;4.Financing for scale up of early-stage low-carbon products, to bring down costs and remove barriers to deployment and to catalyze investment by the private sector;5.Information sharing that enables all energy stakeholders to access state-of-the art information on technology and best practices.To achieve the best results, Climate REDI will coordinate closely with other programs that promote clean energy technologies in developing countries. For the Solar and LED Program, this includes the International Finance Corporation’s Lighting Africa initiative, TERI’s Lighting a Billion Lives program and the U.S. Department of Energy’s Lumina Project. For the Super-efficient Appliance Program, it includes the International Partnership for Energy Efficiency Cooperation (IPEEC), the Collaborative Labeling and Standards Program (CLASP), EPA’s Energy Star program and the Asia Pacific Partnership on Clean Development and Climate. The Clean Energy Information Platform builds upon the OpenEI platform, developed by the Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). And Scaling-up Renewable Energy Program is an activity under the Climate Investment Funds, a multilateral, multibillion dollar trust fund housed at the World Bank.


The combined budget for these programs is $350 million over five years. Funding for the first three programs above will total $100 million -- $35 million that the United States intends to contribute, with the balance from Italy, Australia and other partners. Funding for the Scaling-Up Renewable Energy Program will total $250 million – $50 million that the United States intends to contribute and $200 million that the United Kingdom, Netherlands, Norway and Switzerland pledged previously. (These previous pledges were subject to receipt of $250 million in total contributions, a condition satisfied by the United States’ announcement today, allowing the entire program to go forward.)

Major Economies Forum Technology Action Plans
President Obama launched the Major Economies Forum in March 2009, creating a new dialogue among developed and emerging economies to combat climate change and promote clean energy. At their July summit in L’Aquila, Italy, MEF Leaders launched a new Global Partnership on clean energy technologies.

Today MEF countries, including the United States, released ten Technology Action Plans developed under the Global Partnership. These plans summarize mitigation potential of high-priority technologies, highlight best practice policies, and provide a menu of specific actions that countries can take individually and collectively to accelerate development and deployment of low-carbon solutions.

The ten technology areas and lead countries are:
1.Advanced vehicles (Canada)2.Bioenergy (Brazil and Italy)3.Building energy efficiency (United States)4.Carbon capture, use and storage (Australia and the UK)5.High-efficiency, low-emissions coal (India and Japan)6.Industrial energy efficiency (United States)7.Marine energy (France)8.Smart grid (Italy and Korea)9.Solar energy (Germany and Spain)10.Wind energy (Germany, Denmark and Spain)The Technology Action Plans and an Executive Summary are available on the MEF’s website at http://www.majoreconomiesforum.org.


Clean Energy Ministerial
To drive this work forward and continue concrete action on global clean energy technology deployment, Secretary Chu today announced that he will host a first-ever Clean Energy Ministerial for MEF and other countries in Washington, D.C., next year.

U.S. Paid Over $26 Billion for Oil in November

U.S. Paid Over $26 Billion for Oil in November


Bipartisan NAT GAS Act would Dramatically Reduce Our Dependence on Foreign Oil as World Demand Poised to Increase
Pickens says, “We have more than 100 years supply of natural gas in this country and a bill in Congress that will incentivize us to use it to replace imported oil, allowing America to recapture control of its energy policy.”

DALLAS----In his twelfth consecutive monthly update on the level of foreign oil imports in the U.S., energy expert T. Boone Pickens said that based on the latest figures from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Energy Information Administration (EIA), the U.S. imported 61% percent of its oil, or 339 million barrels in November 2009, sending approximately $26.4 billion, or $ 591,477 per minute, overseas to foreign governments.

“We’re almost finished with 2009, and we really haven’t made any progress in reducing our dependence on foreign oil,” said Pickens. “Failure to address this issue threatens our national and economic security, and that’s unacceptable. We have an alternative resource in natural gas that is right here in our own soil and with abundant supply to last more than 100 years. But, while we can be frustrated at our failure to reduce our dependence on foreign oil in 2009, we can be hopeful that we are closer to passing a bill in Congress that will incentivize us to use natural gas in transportation in early 2010, which will allow America to recapture control of its energy policy. We urge the leadership in Washington to get The NAT GAS Act passed and to make progress on reducing foreign oil dependence once and for all.”


The NAT GAS Act of 2009, H.R. 1835, was introduced in the House of Representatives on April 1, 2009 and has 126 bipartisan cosponsors. The Senate version of this bill, S. 1408, was introduced on July 8, 2009 as a bipartisan bill by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ) and Senator Orrin Hatch (R-UT).

Pickens continued, “The International Energy Agency said Friday that world demand for oil will increase in 2010 as economies recover. As demand goes up, so does the price, which means we’ll be sending even more American dollars overseas if we don’t act to get on our own resources immediately.”
Since January 2009, the U.S. has imported more than 4 billion barrels of oil. A study released in June by the Potential Gas Committee, a group of academics and industry specialists supported by the Colorado School of Mines, estimates that we have more than 2,000 trillion cubic feet of natural gas reserves, the only available source that could immediately replace foreign oil as a transportation fuel.


About the Pickens Plan
Unveiled on July 8, 2008 by T. Boone Pickens, the Pickens Plan is a detailed solution for ending the United States’ growing dependence on foreign oil. Last year, when oil prices reached $140/barrel, America was spending about $700 billion for foreign oil, equaling the greatest transfer of wealth in human history. That figure has decreased some while oil prices have retreated, but the U.S. is still dependent on foreign nations for nearly 70 percent of its oil, representing a continuing national security and national economic threat. The plan calls for expanding the use of domestic renewable resources, such as wind and solar, in power generation and using our abundant supplies of natural gas as a transportation fuel, replacing more than one-third of our imported oil.


More than 1.6 million people have joined the Pickens Army through the website www.pickensplan.com, which has had over 17 million hits. For more information on the Pickens Plan please visit our website www.pickensplan.com.

Smart Grid News - New IDC Energy Insights Study Reveals ICT Spending on Intelligent Grid to Reach $17.5 Billion by 2013

Research Provides In Depth Understanding of the Intelligent Grid Opportunity in North America

FRAMINGHAM, Mass.---IDC Energy Insights today announced the availability of a new in-depth and focused study that assesses and forecasts the intelligent grid opportunity for North American electric utilities. Findings from the study, North American Intelligent Grid Utility Spending Forecast (Document # EI220896, December 2009), reveal that information and communications technologies (ICT) spending on intelligent grid technology will increase at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 15.1% to reach $17.5 billion by 2013.

"The intelligent grid is a rapidly growing area, yet little hard data has been available in the past to provide market players with a validated assessment of the market’s status and direction – particularly in terms of spending," said Marcus Torchia, research manager, IDC Energy Insights, Intelligent Grid Strategies. "To understand the magnitude and timing of ICT investments, we surveyed more than 80 utilities in U.S. and Canada to help our industry clients in their strategic planning. The result is a comprehensive forecast of spending and adoption of key smart grid ICT technologies across multiple utility segments."

Key findings of this ground-breaking research include the following:

•The investor-owned utility segment leads in spending on intelligent grid technology investments through the forecast period; •Intelligent metering/AMI projects act as a springboard for business process transformation and further technology investment; •There is an increase in pilot project activity accompanied with expectations for longer trial periods which provide ample opportunity for vendor learning as utility investment focus shifts in forecast period. The IDC Energy Insights report takes into account the impact of ARRA 2009 on intelligent grid grants and offers IT vendors, private equity and institutional investors, and utilities executives with timely forecasts on the size and growth in spending for hardware, software and services for the intelligent grid in the electric utilities industry. It examines spending plans and budgets, barriers to adoption, and select technology preferences. Business benefits of the research include market planning, product development, and effective go-to-market planning initiatives.

Northern Trust offers environmental analytics for clients to measure the carbon footprint of their investments

Northern Trust offers environmental analytics for clients to measure the carbon footprint of their investments
 
LONDON, 10 December 2009 – Northern Trust (Nasdaq: NTRS) announced today that it will offer environmental emission analytics, enabling institutional investors and high net worth individuals across the globe to effectively measure the carbon footprint of their investments. These new capabilities form part of Northern Trust’s existing suite of investment risk and performance analytics solutions.

This latest enhancement comes at a time of heightened awareness of the effects of carbon emissions on the environment, particularly as governments worldwide implement taxes and regulation on emissions. The development of environmental emission analytics is in line with Northern Trust’s commitment to supporting responsible investment policies through asset management and asset servicing solutions.

"Increasingly, we are seeing investors turn their attention towards measures that attempt to accurately attribute environmental impact as an extension to established performance and risk analytics," said Peter Holman, head of client servicing for institutional investors in EMEA, at Northern Trust. "But the ability to accurately assess the carbon footprint of a portfolio is largely constrained by the lack of consistent or comprehensive environmental data disclosed by companies."


Northern Trust provides clients with environmental analytics based on data from Trucost Plc, through the Style Research Portfolio Analyzer (SRPA). Trucost which was established to help organisations, investors and governments understand the environmental impact of business activities in financial terms, claims to hold the world’s most comprehensive database on corporate greenhouse gas emissions.


"By combining the analytics received through Trucost’s methodology with Northern Trust’s existing performance and analytics capabilities, we provide consolidated information to clients, enabling them to compare the carbon footprints of their managers alongside more traditional risk metrics and style analyses," said Ian Castledine, global head of investment risk product for asset servicing at Northern Trust. "Using our integrated environmental analytics solution, trustees can make comparisons between funds and individual managers, and improve communications on environmental performance with stakeholders and regulatory bodies. This may ultimately result in a reduced environmental impact of their investments, without sacrificing financial performance."


The new capability is an innovation of Northern Trust’s Investment Risk and Analytical Services, which has provided risk and performance services to clients for more than 30 years. Recent developments include enhanced data for comprehensive Environmental, Social and Governance monitoring of client portfolios with its Compliance Analyst product. A recent member of the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment (UN PRI) and member of the Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change (IIGCC), Northern Trust also has more than US$9 billion in socially screened assets under management, including index options such as the Northern Global Sustainability Index Fund.


Northern Trust does not review/approve the contents/conclusions provided by Trucost and offers this on an information only basis for use as the client deems appropriate.

With this investment, we will have interests in more than 470 megawatts of green power capacity from our five wind energy projects, expanded solar facilities, four waste heat recovery facilities and the world's first commercial application of hybrid-fuel cell technology."

"We welcome this new investment from Enbridge to expand the Sarnia project," said Bruce Sohn, President of First Solar. "It demonstrates confidence in First Solar's Engineering, Procurement and Construction team, which has recently completed the first 20 MW at Sarnia."

Mr. Daniel noted that solar energy is a key component of Enbridge's environmental performance strategy to invest in renewable and alternative energy sources that complement Enbridge's core operations and provide environmental benefits.

"Our increased investment in the Sarnia Solar Project maintains risk and return characteristics which are fully consistent with Enbridge's low-risk business model, and similar to our crude oil pipeline business," said Mr. Daniel. "The expansion of the Sarnia Solar Project will take advantage of the capacity of the Sarnia site to accommodate additional capacity. Following on our recently announced wind energy project, the Sarnia solar expansion provides a good balance in our renewable energy portfolio between solar and wind."

Subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions precedent, First Solar will construct the solar project for Enbridge under a fixed price engineering, procurement and construction contract, utilizing its thin film photovoltaic technology. First Solar's advanced thin film technology has been deployed in 1.5 gigawatts of installations in the U.S. and Europe.

The 60 MW phase of the project is expected to begin construction in December and be completed by December 2010. At 80 MW, Enbridge expects the Sarnia Solar Project will generate enough power to meet the needs of over 12,800 homes and help to save the equivalent of approximately 39,000 tonnes of CO2 per year.

First Solar will also provide operations and maintenance services to Enbridge under a long-term contract. The power output of the 80 MW facility will be sold to the Ontario Power Authority pursuant to 20-year Power Purchase Agreements under the terms of the Ontario Government's Renewable Energy Standard Offer Program.

"Our recent investments in green energy projects in Ontario - including the 99 MW Talbot Wind Energy Project, our 190 MW Enbridge Ontario Wind Project, and the Sarnia Solar Project - are evidence of Enbridge's commitment to advancing environmentally preferred energy solutions, and of the value of the Ontario government's proactive support and encouragement of investment within the province," said Mr. Daniel.

New Jersey’s and New York City’s Electricity Systems Now Talking to Each Other, Thanks to GE’s Smart Grid Technology & Smart Capital

New Jersey’s and New York City’s Electricity Systems Now Talking to Each Other, Thanks to GE’s Smart Grid Technology & Smart Capital

LINDEN, N.J.--Two major Northeastern US power grids, in New Jersey and New York City, are now talking to each other and dispatching energy more efficiently and reliably using breakthrough GE smart grid technology and capital, the company announced today. Three massive “variable frequency transformers” are converting up to 315 megawatts of electricity – enough for up to 300,000 homes – from the power system in New Jersey and feeding it to New York City.

The successful technology kickoff was celebrated during a dedication ceremony today at the 900-megawatt Linden cogeneration power plant owned by GE Energy Financial Services, just up the road from where Thomas Edison designed the first reliable electric light bulb 130 years ago. It follows three years of planning, design, construction and testing.

The rotary-type transformers – in their largest application – help control the intersection of two of the two largest electrical demand centers in the United States, the Pennsylvania-New Jersey-Maryland (PJM) transmission system and the New York City section of the NYISO grid, which are connected by an upgraded cable buried 60 feet below the Arthur Kill waterway.

These variable frequency transformers are stabilizing New York City’s power grid, increasing energy reliability and providing consumers with more diverse and lower-cost power sources. Because of capacity constraints, New York City pays among the highest electricity costs in North America, creating demand for PJM’s historically lower-cost power generation. The technology also reduces the need for new power plants within the city, where siting is difficult and construction costs are high.

“This investment will enable existing generating and transmission assets to help serve the needs of New York City, enhancing the return on those assets,” said Bob Gilligan, vice president of GE Energy’s transmission and distribution business. “Smarter technology, like these variable frequency transformers, help equip the grid with the versatility and capacity needed to power a world that’s continuing to increase its reliance on electrical power.”

The variable frequency transformers provide a precise control path between electrical grids, permitting power exchanges previously impossible because of technical constraints. They enable transmission system operators to control power flows with high reliability, speed and efficiency, while offering flexibility in how utilities meet growing energy demand.

“In addition to technology breakthroughs, the smart grid requires smart capital -- not only money, but expertise in understanding and navigating energy markets,” said Alex Urquhart, president and CEO of GE Energy Financial Services. “The capital we provided for this Linden smart grid project underscores our ability to optimize the value of an essential, long-lived and capital-intensive asset we own.”


Transformers Could Also Send Power from NYC to NJ
While power will most often flow from New Jersey to New York, economics and other factors could at times favor a reverse flow of power: from New York City to PJM. GE Energy Financial Services has commissioned PJM to study the transmission upgrades required for enabling such a reverse flow. GE Energy Financial Services also plans to work with PJM, as well as NYISO, to improve the system rules so the scheduling of power flows can be coordinated more smoothly between the two systems, allowing more economic, efficient and quicker use of the variable frequency transformers.
GE to Auction More Power from the Transformers
Four power marketing and trading companies are buying 300 megawatts of the power, in the first truly merchant US transmission project, and reselling it to wholesale and retail customers in New York City. GE Energy Financial Services plans to auction the balance of the transformers’ output, 15 megawatts, available because the system’s performance is exceeding its commitment.
The Linden project builds on GE Energy Financial Services’ 30-year legacy of investment in power transmission and generation. GE Energy Financial Services holds equity investments in power projects with a capacity to produce 23 gigawatts, equivalent to the installed generating capacity of the Netherlands.

DEUTSCHE BANK LAUNCHES FREE EMBEDDABLE CARBON COUNTER WIDGET TO MARK THE LAUNCH OF THE COPENHAGEN CLIMATE CHANGE CONFERENCE

DEUTSCHE BANK LAUNCHES FREE EMBEDDABLE CARBON COUNTER WIDGET TO MARK THE LAUNCH OF THE COPENHAGEN CLIMATE CHANGE CONFERENCE

A virtual Carbon Counter is also available for free download at www.dbcca.com

NEW YORK – Dec. 7, 2009 – Deutsche Bank’s Asset Management division (DeAM) today launched a free, embeddable widget of its Carbon Counter, a landmark digital billboard in New York City which displays the running total of long-lived greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, as part of its campaign to raise public awareness of climate change and encourage investment.

A widget is a downloadable, stand-alone application that can be embedded into an end-user’s web page or desktop. In addition to the widget, a virtual Carbon Counter is also available for download and display on any computer, television or most other types of viewing screen. Both items can be found on the “Know the Number” web site at http://www.dbcca.com/dbcca/EN/what-you-can-do/downloadable_widget.jsp.


The Carbon Counter and “Know the Number” campaign are part of groundbreaking climate-change awareness and education initiative sponsored by DB Climate Change Advisors group (DBCCA), DeAM's institutional climate change investment and research business. The “Number” on the Carbon Counter is based on measurements developed by scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) that include all long-lived greenhouse gases covered under the Kyoto and Montreal Protocols (24 gases excluding ozone and aerosols).


Since the launch of the Carbon Counter in June of this year, the running total of long-lived greenhouse gases in the atmosphere has increased by approximately 7.205 billion metric tons. According to a recent report by the American Meteorological Society, which uses MIT’s Integrated Global System Model, probabilistic projections indicate that conditions are warmer than previously understood, with a median surface warming in 2091 to 2100 of 5.2°C, compared to 2.4°C in an earlier study. “We believe that enabling all web site operators to easily display the Carbon Counter ahead of the Copenhagen summit will continue to raise awareness of this very serious issue,” said Kevin Parker, Global Head of DeAM and member of Deutsche Bank’s Group Executive Committee. “Major global investment is essential to preventing catastrophic climate change, and it is imperative for governments to build the regulatory and policy frameworks that accommodate and encourage that investment.


We are hopeful that world leaders will make significant strides in that direction in Copenhagen.” DeAM is one of the leading climate change investors in the world, with approximately $6 billion under management as of September 2009. With a world-class in-house research team focusing on this theme, DeAM is an investment industry thought-leader on a broad range of climate change dynamics.
