The main purpose of this report is to set out important components that make up a modern energy network-heat, gas, and electricity. For each section, the report evaluates the development made, the challenges mooted ahead and what the government is currently doing to mitigate for that.
Strengthening the electrical network in the UK has been a critical objective for the government to meet the ever-increasing energy demands in the country. Though historically the electrical system of the UK has been rated as among the best, the fact remains that much of the structure was initiated in the 60s and it was meant to meet the needs of that time Department of Energy & Climate Change 2014). With the ever-increasing generation of renewable technologies as well as nuclear energy stations, the electrical system in the country has been rendered obsolete.
The investment into upgrading the electrical system in the UK is already underway. Since 2010-2011-fiscal year, over £16 billion has already been spent on improving offshore and onshore electrical networks. According to Ofgem estimates, the total investments in these networks have since increased to more than 20%. Adoption of new government policies and regulatory frameworks is creating the best condition for the betterment of electrical networks. Because of the installation of more reliable regulatory regimes, there is a larger, reliable, and stronger electrical network in the U.K.
To be at par the pace at which the electrical demands are moving, the government is working closely with the Ofgem to create systems that are resilient to current and future challenges (Department of Energy & Climate Change 2014). The interventions and frameworks being installed are meant to ensure that the system of sustainable not only to the demands of customers but also to meeting the global standards. Improving the structures of the energy electrical systems has become a chief objective of the UK government. With these

‘Reliability’ in this sense is the chance of failure of PV system or its parts over time which includes numerous materials, components and subcomponents. It is in this context that each of these parts and components are subjected to frequent failures of instruments which can result in ineffective PV module reliability (Muneer, “Large-Scale Solar PV Investment Planning Studies”).
The renowned “Bath Tub Curve” concept highlighting the failure zones which precede and succeed the useful lifetime of any product, when depicted on a time scale as shown below, can be deemed to be a measure of its performance, and is more relevant for rotating equipments.
This research essay will make an earnest attempt to elucidate the wind and hydropower generation of manoeuvres of both Australian and Bangladesh government, to minimise the global warming and of that USA, China, Brazil, Russia and Canadian governments in general by giving unique attention to various empirical studies and eminent authors’ views.
Renewable energy is one of the most important innovations and options which the world in general has considered. These sources of energy have been prompted by the global warming crisis and the call for reducing the impact of energy sources on the environment. As such, renewable sources include solar energy, geothermal energy.
Other sources of energy were preferred to wind because of its unreliability and the high capital costs associated. Presently, oil reserves are diminishing thus the various moves by countries across the world to explore
The solution to this problem is alternative energy (LePoire, 2011).
The US government should increase the incentives to attract alternative energy investment. Increase in incentives will increase the alternative energy sources
Fossil fuels are the most popular energy source even though other sources of energy are available in this world. One of the most difficult problems associated with fossil fuels is its non-renewable nature. It should be noted that energy sources are
The same has provide light regarding the importance of piggybacking into transmission SCADA systems. SCADA refers to a system that operate with coded signals usually over communications channels in order to deliver remote equipment control. It
