Energy Storage Safety: Codes & Standards Update and Discussion
The safety of an energy storage system cannot be overemphasized. At the moment, in the US both manufacturers and installers refer to UL-rated systems and install to National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) standards. Although energy storage standards from both organizations are relatively young (UL 9540 began in 2016; NFPA 855 in 2020), they received input from hundreds of stakeholders, including engineers, manufacturers, first-responders, and safety policymakers — all in an effort to prevent loss of life and property. There should be other standards for the rest of the world for example the EU. The panel section will discuss energy storage safety and across the world the standards being adopted. Many safety concerns, especially with lithium-based batteries, relate to thermal runaway — when a battery experiences an increase in temperature that eventually leads to cell short-circuiting or disintegration that can spark a fire. The panel discussion will address these thermal runaways and safety concerns regarding how to discard used battery systems safely.

Priming the Utility Workforce to Improve Operations and Outage Planning
Conquering power plant outages from workforce to outage planning. How to Plan, prepare, and execute outages to deliver a shorter, more productive project through milestones and lessons learned. Speakers from NextEra, Constellation Nuclear, and UBC Millwrights share their strategic processes to minimize downtime and increase the bottom line. A collaborative approach with the power plant owner and skilled labor workforce provider, and even contractors - is results-driven. The comprehensive process includes safety, performance, productivity, schedule, and budget - all part of the process that allows for repeatability and success.

Hydrogen: A Path to Resource Adequacy and Net Zero Carbon
The effort to decarbonize our power grid has been underway for several years as evidenced by the massive deployment of wind and solar resources. As we add more intermittent renewable resources to the grid and reduce our dependency on fossil fuels, we increase the need for energy storage of all durations. This presentation will focus on the reasons “hydrogen” is not just a buzzword in the energy industry and how Mitsubishi Power is creating the hydrogen infrastructure in the U.S. Key Takeaways: Hydrogen is cost effective for long duration storage today Technologies surrounding hydrogen are safe and proven Mitsubishi Power and key partners are actively developing hydrogen infrastructure across the U.S.

Energy Transitions in the Power Sector: A Path to Carbon Neutrality
Global electricity demand is set to increase three times by 2070, driven by economic growth and expansion. To meet this growth while reducing carbon footprint, the rapid adoption of CO2 reduction technologies is a pathway for sustainable growth. This presentation will provide an overview of the technology and recent developments. Carbon Capture Technology: The first step is deciding which assets to target, and then selecting an appropriate technology optimized for that operation. Technologies are ready today that can be deployed at scale-based for any number of factors. Learn about different carbon capture technologies to help achieve your CO2 emission targets. Storage, EOR & Carbon Sinks: IEA’s sustainable development scenario shows that over 90% of the world’s captured CO2 will need sequestration, but there are other options based on several factors. Learn of different industries that can put carbon to use.

Challenges and Realities for Hydrogen Capable Gas Turbines
A convergence of technology development, policy support, and industry investment trends are accelerating the pace of Hydrogen (H2) technology demonstrations, increasing the likelihood of power sector impacts. In preparation for a largescale power sector shift toward decarbonization for a low carbon future, several major power equipment manufacturers are developing gas turbines that can operate on a high H2-volume fuel. Many have H2 capable systems now that range from 5 to 100% H2 by volume. Units with 100% H2 capabilities are either using a diffusion burner or some version of a wet low emissions (WLE) burner. Most dry low emission/dry low NOx (DLE/DLN) technologies are currently limited to ~50% H2 or less. Therefore, research is currently underway to develop low NOx gas turbine combustion systems with improved Hydrogen capability. This presentation plans to provide an overview of the technical challenges of Hydrogen usage and inclusion within gas turbine combustion systems. This will include operational considerations of flashback, blowoff, combustion instabilities, and NOx emissions.

Utility Communication Infrastructure: Mission Critical Private Networks – The Catalyst for Utilities’ Digital Transformation
A fireside chat with the executive leadership from two major IOUs – Southern Co. and Exelon Corp. We will hear their perspectives on the role that capital investments in private networks play toward grid modernization strategies, and how Private-LTE networks can help accelerate a utility’s digital transformation journey. This session will have plenty of opportunities for the audience to engage in a dialog with the panel.

One year later: Lessons Learned from Winter Storm Uri and How Demand-side Solutions Can Help Address Remaining Vulnerabilities
In February 2021 the Texas grid was just minutes away from total, uncontrollable blackouts that would have gone on for weeks if the load shed hadn’t been in place. At the time, demand response was an underutilized resource in Texas and it continues to be overlooked. DR may not have been able to address every issue that arose during the 2021 storm, but it can certainly help prevent future challenges -- especially as more wind and solar come on the grid. As we approach the one-year anniversary of the storm, CPower's Joe Hayden will explore what we have learned and changed, and what more should be done.

Resilient, Firm Power Utilizing Renewables – HECO’s Schofield Generation Station
Hawaiian Electric Company’s (HECO) recently completed a 50 MW reciprocating engine power plant and a new 46kV switchyard on Schofield Army Barracks in Wahiawa, HI. This presentation will discuss the deal between HECO/Army/State, and how the plant was spec’d and designed to meet the needs of those stakeholders. Every design and construction decision was based on how well the result would satisfy the needs of the stakeholders. The presentation will also look at the following: • The benefits of the plant for HECO, the DOD and the local community • How the plant allows more integration of variable renewables • The trifuel design to integrate potential future LNG or a biogas as well as the local biofuel supply, and how it creates local jobs and supports local economy • Black start capability and challenges • The experience in operation after a couple of years and any lessons learned
