1 Day to Go

News from CEO – Mike Hopkins

Yes, there is only one working day left to get your conference registration in and enjoy a discount or concessionary rate or be able to pay by credit transfer. Discounts, concessions and payment options close at 5pm on Tuesday. After that time, you will only be able to pay by credit card. This is a systems constraint and is not flexible. Registration will remain open right up to conference start but no discounts can be applied after Tuesday, so please register now to avoid paying full price and credit card fees.

Also a reminder that anyone wanting to take advantage of our “pay what you can afford” offer for corporate or product videos needs to get those videos, bids and 100 words on why your video should be included in to us by close of play today as these are being reviewed on Tuesday and spliced together next week.

 A shout-out to Kevin Crutchley of Christchurch City Council this week. Kevin’s sent us a mini case study on the waste water heat recovery system that is helping fuel the Metro Sports Facility. It’s an interesting read and you can see more details here
 Speaking of waste, while New Zealand is still debating the long term, real value of a hydrogen economy, the world’s biggest green hydrogen production facility has just been announced for California using waste as the feedstock. The plant will process 42,000 tonnes of waste a year to deliver around 11,000 Kg of hydrogen a day. It is claimed to reduce emissions at twice the rate of generating hydrogen from renewables through electrolysis and at one seventh of the cost. 
 Waste processing seems a growth area globally, with the green light given this week to Europe’s largest waste to jet fuel plant. The plant, to be built in Lincolnshire, will produce 20 million gallons of jet fuel per year, each gallon delivering a 70% net reduction in greenhouse gases compared with traditional jet fuel. The emissions savings are equivalent to taking 40,000 cars off the roads. 
 2020 will see the largest ever drop in global energy investment according to the IEA, with a predicted fall of 20% for the year, US$400bn in monetary terms. Perhaps the good news is that oil will account for most of the decline with oil and gas investments falling by a third. It also predicts electricity network spending will fall 9%. 
 Finally this week, welcome to new members Jonathan Linders (Hutt City Council) and Nicole Timney (AgResearch) and new Bronze Partner LPINZ. If you aren’t familiar with LPINZ, tune in to our Tuesday webinar where they will be talking about EV chargers and what you need to know when thinking of installing them.
