Inconsistent naming of power station articles[edit]

I have just been looking through articles on Scottish power stations and I notice an inconsistency in their naming. Some have "power station" all in lower case, e.g. Longannet power station, Methil power station, whereas others are capitalised: Peterhead Power Station, Lerwick Power Station. I'm not sure whether these really count as proper names to merit capitals. Does this project have any guidance on the matter? --Deskford (talk) 14:06, 29 December 2014 (UTC)

I generally capitalize it all not only for consistency but I find it the proper name most of the time. I also apply common name as well but it can be difficult to determine. Took a look at Longannet and capitalization seems to be a trend if not the proper name. Not sure how other editors feel on the subject.--NortyNort (Holla) 15:18, 29 December 2014 (UTC)
substations should be capitalized as well (talk) 19:00, 26 January 2015 (UTC)

shale oil extraction and recent drop in crude oil prices[edit]

Our articles don't seem to reflect this significant development. Tkuvho (talk) 14:40, 1 January 2015 (UTC)

WikiProject X is live![edit]

WikiProject X icon.svg

Hello everyone!

You may have received a message from me earlier asking you to comment on my WikiProject X proposal. The good news is that WikiProject X is now live! In our first phase, we are focusing on research. At this time, we are looking for people to share their experiences with WikiProjects: good, bad, or neutral. We are also looking for WikiProjects that may be interested in trying out new tools and layouts that will make participating easier and projects easier to maintain. If you or your WikiProject are interested, check us out! Note that this is an opt-in program; no WikiProject will be required to change anything against its wishes. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you!

Note: To receive additional notifications about WikiProject X on this talk page, please add this page to Wikipedia:WikiProject X/Newsletter. Otherwise, this will be the last notification sent about WikiProject X.

Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Open source energy system models[edit]

This abandoned AfC submission may be useful to this project. There doesn't appear to be general coverage of the Energy system model topic. Though there is coverage of some individual products: National Energy Modeling System, GHGProof. ~KvnG 18:48, 28 January 2015 (UTC)

Is "hot dry rock geothermal energy" still considered to be the same as "enhanced geothermal system"?[edit]

In 2009 the content of Hot dry rock geothermal energy was merged into Enhanced geothermal system. Currently there is a draft article at Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Hot Dry Rock (HDR) Geothermal Energy which argues that the two are different topics. The references in the draft article are more recent than those in the original "hot dry rock" article, and include the book Donald W. Brown; David V. Duchane; Grant Heiken; Vivi Thomas Hriscu (23 April 2012). Mining the Earth's Heat: Hot Dry Rock Geothermal Energy. Springer Science & Business Media. p. 588. ISBN 978-3-540-68910-2.  The book authors distinguish between HDR (hot dry rock geothermal energy) and HWR (hot wet rock). The glossary also states that HWR was renamed EGS (enhanced geothermal system) by the US DOE in 1995.

Another book cited in the draft article, John Harvey Sass; Wendell A. Duffield (2003). Geothermal Energy: Clean Power from the Earth’s Heat. DIANE Publishing. p. 24. ISBN 978-1-4289-1737-8. , states that EGS is the middle ground between HDR experiments that weren't viable in 2003 and the then current commercial systems.

Please look at these two articles and see if the original merge is correct, or if they need to have separate articles. If not separate, the new draft needs merging into a reorganized EGS article. What is the use in current practice? Has "enhanced geothermal energy" expanded over the years to cover everything. For example, EGS Energy is the company doing the new hot dry rock project in Cornwall. StarryGrandma (talk) 21:03, 1 February 2015 (UTC)

Our company SEE p/l (Sustainable Enhanced Energy P/L) has acquired a new technology that vastly improves the efficiency of coal fired power generation facilities ( over 100%) whilst reducing harmful particulate matter to zero and reducing the production of CO2 by Approx. 30%. This is a patented process that has been validated by a top 100 university. We are very excited with the potential of this technology as we feel it will be world changing. Benefits of this technology are that the capture of the CO2 is not at the expense of additional power. Being a 'Bolt on" type technology it can be installed into existing "dirty" power generators for a very economical cost thereby increasing the life of these facilities and rather than replace them with costs in the billions the addition of S.E.E technology will only cost $150 to $200 million doubling the output of power therefore reducing the cost of generation by at least 40%. The commercialization of our technology will commence early March 2015. We are based in Brisbane Australia.

Create page for Tervita[edit]


I work in the communications department at Tervita. We noticed that we don't have a Wikipedia page. Some of the former companies that are now amalgamated under the Tervita umbrella include CCS Midstream Services (, Hazco Environmental Services, and more.

How can we go about creating a Wikipedia entry for Tervita?

Thank you, (talk) 17:02, 9 February 2015 (UTC) Julia Marshall Sr. Advisor, Communications Tervita (403) 234-4893

  • Hey Julia. We'd have to do some research to ensure your organization meets the notability requirements to have an article on Wikipedia. Not every company can have an article. If a subsidiary sub company of your company has an article, chances are it can be merged into a Tervita article. Additionally, conflict of interest has to be considered if you want to create or edit the article yourself. I can have a look later and will get back to you here.--NortyNort (Holla) 18:44, 9 February 2015 (UTC)

That would be great - thanks so much. I should note the CCS Midstream Services Wikipedia listing pops up under the map when one googles "Tervita" (try it out). We're concerned that may cause some confusion, and it would be nice to have a Tervita listing appear there. Thanks.

  • I created a stub article which you can see here. I will work on it more in the next few days. I see the company is private and I can't find any financials. As far as the Hazco and CCS Midstream Services articles go, I believe they should be merged into Tervita but am not sure. I don't normally work on company-related articles. I assume both companies don't really exist anymore by that name. Regarding the Google search, we don't control that but now that there is a Tervita article the search return should change at some point... --NortyNort (Holla) 02:23, 10 February 2015 (UTC)

Thanks, that's great! I do believe the Hazco and CCS Midstream Services articles should be merged into Tervita - you're right, both companies don't exist by that name anymore. I'll leave it to you - thanks again for your help.

Wikipedia Primary School invitation[edit]

Hi everybody. On behalf of the teams behind the Wikipedia Primary School research project, I would like to announce that the article Coal in South Africa (of interest to this wikiproject) was selected a while ago to be reviewed by an external expert. We'd now like to ask interested editors to join our efforts and improve the article before March 15, 2015 (any timezone) as they see fit; a revision will be then sent to the designated expert for review (please see the article's talk page for details). Any notes and remarks written by the external expert will be made available on the article's talk page under a CC-BY-SA license as soon as possible, so that you can read them, discuss them and then decide if and how to use them. Please sign up here to let us know you're collaborating. Thanks a lot for your support! Elitre (WPS) (talk) 16:58, 1 March 2015 (UTC)

Electricity North West - update details[edit]

Hi, I am the Marketing Communications Officer at Electricity North West. We would like to update our phone number on the MPAN page to our most up to date phone number - 0800 195 4141 ( error: There are <ref> tags on this page without content in them (see the help page). ). We also need to make minor changes to our own Wikipedia page. It would be great if someone could help us with this.

Many thanks MaeveENW (talk) 11:45, 6 March 2015 (UTC)
