Energy IQ, pioneers to develop the SCADA Summit series for the Asia Pacific region is happy to roll out the latest edition of SCADA Asia 2012 that understands the industry’s thirst for a refreshing insight into upcoming SCADA technologies.



As the world’s energy demand increases, Heavy Oil is aggressively being sought out as an upcoming energy resource. Heavy crude oil grades is primed to play a prominent role in meeting global demand from the Middle East. Technological advances is making it possible for this once costly energy source in becoming a more viable alternative. Worldwide resources of tar-like crude amount to 5.1 trillion barrels, of which at least 510 billion barrels are economically recoverable today. However producing the oil would be costly, while posing huge environmental challenges in terms of pollution, carbon emissions and water consumption.




It is the world’s foremost annual meeting committed to advancing future energy, energy efficiency and clean technologies by engaging political, business, finance, academic and industry leaders to drive innovation, business and investment opportunities in response to the growing need for sustainable energy.



The Gas to Power Europe Forum is designed to review the technical, commercial, legislative and environmental challenges inherent in building Europe’s future gas fired power generation capacity. For some time, Europe has been looking toward natural gas to play a more dominant role in power generation. With increasing EU legislation on carbon-intensive fuel sources such as coal, lignite and oil, natural gas is seen as a positive “low-carbon” choice. It is readily available through existing infrastructure, flexible, adaptable with current technology and it is relatively cheap and safe. Gastech Specialist Events Gas to Power Europe Forum will be an opportunity for gas and power companies to come together to discuss the technical and commercial developments underlying the development of gas-fired power generation in Europe thus far and to look to the future.



 

The Annual Meeting 2012 will convene under the theme, “The Great Transformation: Shaping New Models”, whereby leaders return to their core purpose of defining what the future should look like, aligning stakeholders around that vision and inspiring their institutions to realize that vision.
