Distributed Generation: Which technologies? How fast will they emerge?

Speaker(s): 
Date: 
March 16, 2000 - 12:00pm
Location: 
Bldg. 90
Seminar Host/Point of Contact: 

Utility deregulation, environmental issues, increases in electricity demand, natural gas/electricity rate changes, new technologies, and several other key drivers are stimulating distributed generation globally. The technologies that have pushed ahead of the pack are micro turbines and fuel cells.  Since Modine is a world leader in the manufacturing of heat transfer equipment, we are eager to play in this new, emerging market.  Are the market drivers real?  Will these technologies survive or even thrive?  What are the pitfalls?  If you had the responsibility in your company to spend millions and direct dozens of people down the DG path, would you?  This presentation will cover the background assumptions for DG and also discuss the technologies.  My goal during the seminar is to have a dialogue to get feedback from experts in the field.  (For more information on this you're invited to visit Modine Manufacturing Co. at www.modine.com )
