Register for live webinars and watch previous events on demand. We review and analyze all aspects around industrial energy, project management, and best practices in capital projects.
A mining operation’s energy infrastructure is the key factor for success in operational safety, reliability, expansion flexibility and energy efficiency, reducing operating expenses as well as carbon emissions. Mining stakeholders are looking for ways to incorporate alternative energy sources (renewables, storage, etc.) while maintaining capital expenditure competitiveness. Join us for a panel discussion on the energy infrastructure considerations that must be taken into account for existing and future mining sites.
Many industrial projects in Mexico have been delayed because of not having carried out the process of connecting to the electrical network correctly. This is due to the regulatory and technical complexity of the country’s new energy and environmental laws, which requires several processes to be carried out in parallel, in a certain sequence, with various government entities at the local, state and federal levels.
Facility electrical infrastructure assessment, also known as electrical master planning, is a critical industry practice to help reduce the possibility of electrical failures that could cause significant losses. Knowing how and when to conduct these assessments is not only a safety best practice, but also serves as an energy efficiency exercise that defines and prioritizes improvements. In this educational presentation on electrical master planning, you will learn what, how and why it’s critical, especially for older facilities, and the key considerations involved.
Site selection is one of the most critical and complex decisions every industrial investor must make. In addition to supply chain considerations, the energy and water supply is critical because of multiple factors that could affect their reliability and quality, which in turn would undoubtedly affect the development and operation of the industrial facility. Join us for a panel discussion with leaders in industrial and energy development in Mexico.
Join Air Liquide, Capital Energético Mexicano (CEM) and Burns & McDonnell for a Q&A panel discussing inside-the-fence energy options for industrial users in Mexico from development, construction and operational perspectives.
In an Energy & Commerce interview, Noé Sáenz explains what industrial actors need to know about connecting to the grid.
Augmenting or replacing utility-delivered power at industrial plants can take many forms. Which one is right for you? Can they be combined?
Changes in Mexican energy regulations are causing delays in projects to build new industrial plants, mainly due to the complexity of maneuvering through the permitting and technical processes, in a certain sequence, with new requirements. The key to success is a well-managed grid connection process, aligned with the plant’s on-site energy plan.
Financing is a key element of any energy capital project. And it is a complex endeavor that needs to be carefully planned and executed for the project to succeed.
Join us for a conversation with Calixto Mateos, managing director of the North American Development Bank, to discuss key considerations, best practices and lessons learned in financing energy projects along the U.S.-Mexico border.
Communication is critical to every energy project, both internally and externally. Most companies struggle communicating about the benefits of capital projects externally to their stakeholders, including investors, the local community and government agencies.
Join us for a conversation with communications expert Aldo Santillán, editor of Energy & Commerce magazine, on the challenges and opportunities that he sees for project owners, suppliers and contractors across the energy supply chain to better communicate externally and help projects succeed.
This webinar aims to introduce the technical requirements that the grid code demands from load centers. This presentation will be of interest to load centers already connected to the grid, as well as those that wish to connect in the future. Attendees will learn which electrical parameters and measurements they should look for when trying to comply with the grid code.
This webinar addresses the key concepts and considerations that a charging center requires to connect to the National Electric System, focusing on the feasibility and planning of a project, the process of a connection before CENACE and CFE, the permits and licenses required for construction, and the startup procedure.
This webinar teaches power plant developers the route to reach an interconnection agreement. We address the feasibility and planning stages of the project and the process of interconnections with CENACE, including the requirements and considerations of the application, design, permits and execution times.
This webinar is an open dialogue about the most common failures and risks, and about best practices for developing and executing more competitive and reliable cogeneration projects. The Q&A session was intended to help industrial users and cogeneration plant developers and operators.
One goal that is often overlooked during the early stages of a project is the development of the schedule, which is just as relevant as the cost estimate. This is always associated with the execution phases, but it should be started as soon as there is a plan to develop a project. Just like the cost estimate, this matures as the project scope is being defined. This webinar describes the process to build a project schedule, from the very early stages of development up to becoming the execution baseline.
Many cogeneration plants fail to meet expectations because of insufficient front-end planning and evaluation of the project during development. This webinar is intended to help industrial energy managers and power developers with common failures and key considerations for developing competitive and reliable cogeneration plants at industrial facilities.
One of the most critical tasks during the development of a project is the definition and approval of the cost estimate. For many, this starts with requesting quotations from contractors and vendors. In reality, this starts from the very conceptualization of the project, and it matures as the scope is defined.
In this webinar, you will learn about the maturity of the cost estimate up to its transition into a budget, and will also be introduced to the cost estimate classification system from AACE International.
According to a survey carried out by KPMG in 2019, around 80% of construction projects in the world do not achieve their original goals.
In Mexico, the International Energy Society of Mexico (ISME) carried out a survey within its forum “Energy Capital Projects 2019” with the question, “What are the three main reasons for failure in capital projects?” The answers may surprise you. And no, neither problems with communities nor corruption are among the first three reasons.
The management of capital projects acquires more relevance in the energy industry as the complexity of the projects increases and new technologies arise. For the organizations that develop these projects, the success rate is defined even before requesting an EPC quote. In this webinar, you will learn about front-end planning methodologies and the stages it comprises.
