Green Trading markets are over ten years old, they encompass SO2, NOX, CO2 and renewable energy trading. Each of these markets is dynamic and is evolving to accommodate more participants and to increase the efficacy of measures to improve the environment.

Today, the carbon dioxide market is beginning to ramp up in Europe, the US, Canada, Japan, Australia as it emulates oil market development as a global carbon market. The EU Emissions Trading Scheme which began on January 1, 2005 coupled with the implementation of the Kyoto Protocol on February 16th have catalyzed development of global carbon markets including those in the US on both the Chicago Climate Exchange and on the larger Over-the-Counter financial markets.

Both due to technology changes and the demand for green power, the renewable energy credit market is accelerating in market developments. Their growth trajectory is quite extraordinary but what are renewable energy credits and how are they traded. This report lets you know.

Finally risk management software is needed to track and position keep deals in these emerging markets. We offer the first analysis of environmental risk management systems.

This report captures the best available information and analysis at this point in GreenTrading market development on April 5, 2005. It is intended as a sophisticated primer to get the reader up to speed quickly on what are carbon markets, what are SO2 and NOX and why are they important and what is renewable energy trading.

Distributed Generation: The Power Paradigm for the New Millenium

by Anne-Marie Borbely, Jan F. Kreider

$115.90 (Hardcover)

published by CRC, 2001
As a result of deregulation, the US electric utility industry is undergoing a dramatic transformation with far-reaching technical and social consequences. At the heart of this transformation lies Distributed Generation (DG)-the substitution of centralized electricity production with smaller-scale technologies located in or near facilities and powered by natural gas or renewable resources. The Electric Power Research Institute estimates that 20 percent of all new power generation will use distributed, not centralized technologies. Distributed Generation: The Power Paradigm for the New Millennium is the first step to understanding the myriad issues that surround the newest, most significant trend in power production since the steam turbine. Chapters contributed by the top experts in their fields address virtually every aspect of this energy "revolution," from its associated technologies to the regulatory environment and from choosing the right DG system for a given purpose to the novel financial and economic opportunities this paradigm shift presents. This book gives engineers and energy business developers their first opportunity to explore and gain a broad understanding of the new energy landscape. With its detailed discussion of the near-term technologies that will see application in the next few years, Distributed Generation: The Power Paradigm for the New Millennium will undoubtedly become the industry's standard reference.
