Built on the foundation laid by David Jacoby's 2012 book Optimal Supply Chain Management in Oil, Gas, and Power Generation, Reinventing the Energy Value Chain expands those concepts to address energy transformation. As the push for diversification of energy sources continues, this book takes a pragmatic view. It provides a toolbox of techniques to successfully manage the range of complex tradeoffs that are inherent in capital projects and operations & maintenance across energy technologies and apply best practice techniques to emerging energy industries - from the small to the large project, and from solar to nuclear and everything in between.

The book is broken into two parts. Part one provides a conceptual framework for value chain management in the energy sector. It lays out the objectives, key business processes, and performance metrics that provide useful guideposts. It offers first principles that should guide value chain initiatives in the energy industry and explains how to organize supply chain management activities. Part two includes initial chapters on capital project and operations management and explains overall tools and techniques that are relevant to energy supply chains broadly speaking. The ensuing chapters show how these concepts apply to 10 energy technologies:
  • Oil & gas
  • Nuclear
  • Solar
  • Wind
  • Gas and coal-fired power
  • Hydropower
  • Biomass
  • Geothermal
  • Energy storage
  • Hydrogen fuel cells


Features and Benefits:
  • A purposeful set of concepts and principles furnishing those investing in energy projects with a good overall guide to aid them in their decision making.
  • A timely discussion on the optimization of supply chains and systems using modern digitalization technologies and details the opportunities and the threats and covers the economic and operational strategies.
  • A toolbox of techniques for managing capital projects that aids in decision making.
  • Tradeoffs and Management Techniques in Capital Project Management.
  • Tradeoffs and Management Techniques in Operations & Maintenance.
  • Roadmaps for unlocking latent value in supply chains.

Reviews

This book is encyclopedic as well as a how-to manual, a gem for those interested in energy supply chains." –Dr. Jaydeep Balakrishnan, PhD, Associate Dean, College of Business Administration at the California State University, Sacramento, and former Professor of Operations and Supply Chain Management at the Haskayne School of Business, University of Calgary

"Much of the foundational thinking on which this book is built concerns the differentiation between the value chain and the supply chain thinking and is thus suitable for those working in the supply and demand spaces and in every part of supply chain including producers, suppliers and distributors of energy." –Dr. Waddah S. Ghanem Al Hashmi, PhD, Senior Director, Emirates National Oil Company (ENOC)
