This is a shout out for the IEM. My Technical Division will be having a talk on the 9th May by Ir. Benjamin Ng Chong Jin. It’ll be at 9:00 am (makan-makan at 8:30) at Wisma IEM. That’s right people, as part of the new health drive you are required to walk up 3 flights of stairs to get your 2 CPD points.
This talk draws attention to the fuel diversification in a power market (e.g. Malaysia) and the different fuels which determine the fuel specific electricity tariff. The talk aims to shed lights on how a regulated market’s electricity tariff is being computed with respect to the different type of power plant technologies from oil-fired power plant to combined-cycle power plant to coal-fired power plant. Each power plant technology has its advantages in supporting the electricity grid and also its drawbacks. This will be elaborated in the talk.
