Special Project Supplement: A mega project is under way in Bolivia that is part of a strategic programme aimed at turning the country into a regional energy hub. The project, which sees the conversion of three separate simple cycle plants into combined cycle, is a showcase in project logistics under challenging conditions.

Fuel Watch: Gas condensate discovery offshore South Africa
A major gas condensate discovery off the coast of South Africa is expected to lead to more exploration activity off the continent’s southern coast and attract other major international energy companies to the region.

Industry Perspective: Will AI save the utility business?
In an age where large cloud servers running complex algorithms using artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning solve problems, it is possible to unlock the big data produced by smart meters – data that contains information about the load in each home. Some believe that unlocking this data is key to the survival of energy companies.

Energy Outlook: A battery-powered renewable future
The case for battery storage is clear: it will reduce costs, improve energy security and above all increase the percentage of renewable energy sources in the global power mix. The question is how to increase global deployment.

Technology: Hydrogen and electricity from plastic
A new proprietary process for converting waste – typically non-recyclable plastic and used tyres – into hydrogen electricity has been independently assessed and is now in the commercialisation phase.

Final Word: A bolt from the blue?
