    Korea Western Power Co., Ltd.(hereinafter “KOWEPO”) is one of the public enterprises and leading power supplier in Korea as well. KOWEPO split off from Korea Electric Power Corporation by Korea Power Industry Restructuring Act in April 2001, and now its generation capacity is almost 10% of the entire domestic electricity consumption. KOWEPO has 2,546 employees, 11,333MWs of installed capacity mostly composed of thermal and combined cycle powers.

  • Other Product Manufacture and Use

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Sunday, January 1, 2006
    Objective: 
    Sectors: 

    This chapter of the 2006 IPCC Guidelines for National Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Inventories outlines methods for estimating emissions of SF6 and PFCs from the manufacture and use of electrical equipment and a number of other products. It also provides methods for estimating emissions of N2O from several products. In most of these applications, the SF6, PFC or N2O is deliberately incorporated into the product to exploit one or more of the physical properties of the chemical, such as the high dielectric strength of SF6, the stability PFCs and the anaesthetic effect of N2O.

  • Energy, Climate Change and Environment 2016 Insights

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Tuesday, November 1, 2016

    This publication examines the sectors, technologies and policy measures that will be central in the transition to a low-carbon energy system. It addresses the following questions: (1) What are the roles of coal and gas in meeting the stringent decarbonisation requirements for the power sector consistent with IEA modelling of global climate goals? (2) What are moderate carbon prices accomplishing in the electricity sector, and how can they be helpful as part of a package of other policies?

  • Optimization Investigation of a Stand-Alone Hybrid Energy System Design in Kirkuk Technical College

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Monday, July 20, 2015
    Objective: 

    In this paper a methodology has been developed for optimum planning of hybrid PV, Wind and diesel generator system with some battery backup in Kirkuk Technical College in Iraq. The local solar radiation, wind data and components database from different manufactures are analyzed and simulated in HOMER model to assess the technical and economic viability of the integrated system. Performance of each component was evaluated and sensitivity analysis was performed to optimize the system at different conditions.

  • Using Concentrated Solar Power Techniques to Generate Electric Power in Iraq, a Review on Present Status and Future Directions

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Monday, February 3, 2014
    Objective: 

    Present reserves of oil and natural gas can only cover consumption at this rate for the next 50 years in the case of oil, and for the next 70 years in the case of natural gas. Therefore, one of the fundamental priorities for a country such as Iraq is to use several renewable energies (RE) sources and environmentally friendly energy conversion technologies. Iraq is endowed with large reserves of energy sources, mainly hydrocarbons and a considerable potential for the utilization of RE sources especially with respect to solar energy.

  • Kirkuk municipal waste to electrical energy

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Monday, January 7, 2013
    Objective: 

    Municipal solid waste (MSW) in Kirkuk city in the north of Iraq poses a serious problem having adverse effects on environment and health of the citizens. Both quantity and volume of MSW have continued to increase with the rapid growth of city population. The population of Kirkuk city, on average, has increased by 3% per annum over the past two decades. The population of Kirkuk city is predicted to increase from 1,050,000 in 2008 to 1,445,556 in 2020. The generation of waste is expected to grow in the future with the rise of city population.

  • Modelling the Effects of Climate Change on Hydroelectric Power in Dokan, Iraq

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Tuesday, March 1, 2016
    Objective: 

    Due to shift in the average patterns of weather, climate change became one of the significant development challenges. Hydropower is currently being utilized in more than 150 countries, including 11,000 stations with 27,000 generating units. Increasing attention has been paid to hydropower generation in recent years, because it is renewable energy. Temperature and precipitation effects from global climate change could alter future hydrologic conditions in Iraq and, as a result, future hydropower generation. This is also valid for the Middle East and Iraq.
