  • Description
  • Contents

As the push for diversification of energy sources continues, this book provides a toolbox of techniques to enhance top-line as well as bottom-line results by successfully optimizing capital projects and operations & maintenance trade-offs across the value chain. Built on the foundations laid in Jacoby's previous book Optimal Supply Chain Management in Oil, Gas, and Power Generation and Guide to Supply Chain Management, it offers groundbreaking new ways to tap the power of supply chain management in conventional and emerging energy industries - from the small to the large project, and from solar to nuclear and everything in between.

The organization of the book makes it a handy reference resource. It starts with a conceptual framework for value chain and supply chain management in the energy sector, laying out objectives, key business processes, and performance metrics that provide useful guideposts. It offers principles that should guide investments in the energy industry and explains how to organize the supply chain to maximize their results. Chapters on capital project and operations management explain tools and techniques that are relevant to energy value chains broadly speaking. Technology-specific chapters show how these concepts apply to ten energy domains:

  • Hydrogen & Fuel Cells
  • Energy Storage
  • Wind
  • Solar
  • Biomass
  • Oil & Gas (Upstream, Midstream, and Downstream, each separate chapters)
  • Geothermal
  • Gas and Coal-Fired Power
  • Hydropower
  • Nuclear
