Renewable Energy Procurement Strategy
Questions to energy management consultants/experts:
on green energy (electricity generated from renewable sources such as wind, solar, biomass, geothermal, etc.)
q 1. Explain with case studies, how large industrial consumers are procuring green electricity
each case study should include
i. Case background - sustainability goals (timelines and status)
ii. Types of renewables tapped and sourcing agreement details (such as onsite vs offsite, generation vs investment, ppas – physical vs virtual, eacs - recs vs gos vs tigrs, and such other details)
iii. Goal achievement details
iv. Failures, if any and reasons
q 2. Typical strategy road map/approach followed by companies in different regions such as north america, europe, apac and latam?

a. Buy now (if the market is suitable in terms of low price, high supply, etc.) versus
b. Wait & watch
on black energy (electricity generated from coal, natural gas, oil and other fossil fuels)
q 3. Are companies outsourcing energy procurement function (end to end) or preferring inhouse arrangement for procurement of electricity in fully/partially deregulated markets of north america, europe, and australia? What are the advantages and disadvantages of outsourcing energy procurement function to third parties in deregulated markets? Prove with case studies of companies (preferably with company names) who have opted to outsource energy procurement

Alternative Energy Solutions
I am a research analyst at zintro, and am interested in talking to experts in biodiesel and biofuel industry and potential solutions to the increasing energy crisis, particularly in the farming and shipping transportation sectors. Does the environmental costs and current inefficiencies outweigh the benefits? Are there other energy sources that can offer a more effective solution?
Although at this time i cannot offer payment for expert opinion on the subject, i would be happy to help optimize your current profile
on zintro in exchange for your time.
I look forward to hearing your expertise on these pressing issues.

We are developing a proposal to install a network of wind and solar energy related parameters in a large area. It will be dense network of measuring solar radiation wind, humidity, precipitation and dust for a period of 12 months. The information will then be processed to develop atlas on solar and wind energy. We are looking experts to help us in selecting sensors, deployment of sensors, calibration, data collection and analysis. Please contact us if you are interested to join our team.+17 Other Responses
