The True Costs of Financing Decarbonization
Session to Identify some of the key federal and state/utility incentives that may act as catalysts or game changers in decarbonization.  Some may influence how equity partners invest in generation, how utilities can access funding for transition, how disruptors (ESCO, Bitcoin, Residential scale, EVs) can change the market conditions and others.  The focus of the panel will be on the economics and financial incentives rather than regulatory drivers.  The session should provide answers to some key questions utilities are asking today: What are the policy incentives going to be and what should they be? Will federal incentives work for IPPs, COOPs, Public power, IOUs Example. Will they function like Section 45Q for Carbon storage – tax credit that now has portability feature to sell it/monetize it at a discount for those without tax authority/liability How are utilities going to track their carbonization metrics? Discussion points with ITC, Direct pay and other mechanisms that are being used in marketspace today to drive work?

Digital Power Plants: Connecting Business to Operations
This panel discussion with three subject-matter experts from leading US utilities will explore experiences, ongoing activities, ideas, and visions related to digitalization.  It is well understood that collecting data is a requirement but certainly only the starting point for making digitalization work, and that it takes people, processes, and technology to create benefits for the business.  Discussion topics may include benchmarking, data-driven and first-principles modeling,  KPI, and decision support for operations, maintenance, and trading/dispatch.

The Next Clean Energy Wave: Opportunities Through Dynamic Energy Management
As we see widespread power outages caused by more frequent weather and natural disasters, it's evident something needs to change. Relying only on a century-old grid design, characterized by energy produced at a distance from consumption, is no longer viable. Energy systems by 2030 have to look very different from today to keep up with the population and the electricity demand and be more resilient. Distributed generation through solar and storage must increase to firm access to electricity across all infrastructures. This is a real opportunity if distributed energy assets (DER) are connected through sophisticated communication and control systems that track the energy being generated and demand based on local economics, a communications and control system known as Dynamic Energy Management. In this session, Jacqueline DeSouza, President of Apparent, will dive into how Dynamic Energy Management uses sophisticated communications and controls data aggregation systems to match the mix of available energy (grid, solar, fuel cell, storage) in all waveforms to meet demand. DeSouza will demonstrate why this technology is at the heart of what's to come in clean energy and how it will adapt the energy generated to meet demand at every point of infrastructure, from residential and commercial microgrids to EV charging hubs and the broader energy market. Finally, DeSouza will describe how emerging technologies will improve and integrate distributed generation with the grid to achieve both and support the adoption of clean energy and EVs without a costly overhaul of grid infrastructure, providing a secure energy future for everyone.

STEP Demo: Generating Efficient Power with Transformational sCO2 Technology
The Gas Technology Institute (GTI®), Southwest Research Institute® (SwRI®) and General Electric Global Research (GE-GR) are executing the “STEP” [Supercritical Transformational Electric Power] project, to design, construct, commission, and operate an integrated and reconfigurable 10 MWe sCO2 [supercritical CO2] Pilot Plant Test Facility. The $155.7* million project is funded with $115 million from the US DOE’s National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL Award Number DE-FE0028979) and $40.7* million (*including building investment) from the team members, equipment suppliers, and others interested in sCO2 technology. The presentation and panel session will discuss the attributes the sCO2 power cycles can offer a wide range of power applications and how the project is a significant step toward sCO2 cycle based power generation commercialization and is informing the performance, operability, and scale-up to commercial plants. Secondly, the presentation provides a description of the pilot facility and an update of the project’s progress, including first-of-a-kind equipment challenges, delivery, and installation. These efforts have already provided valuable lessons learned for technology commercialization. The pilot facility is currently under construction at SwRI’s San Antonio, Texas, USA campus. Now well into Phase 2, a ground-breaking was held in October of 2018, and civil work and the construction of a dedicated 22,000 ft2 building is complete. Finally, a top-level review of the planned testing will be provided focusing on the operations and tests needed to mature the technology and provide traceable performance characteristics that can be translated to commercial scale benefits.

Advancing Community Microgrid Resilience with a Distributed Autonomous Controller
Increasingly, there are solar, storage, and other resources sufficient to energize communities affected by wide-area power outages, but there are limited community-oriented control systems capable of acting on their behalf. While traditional microgrids are effective for the individual customers who own them, they do not help communities nor minimize the broader impact of outages. Present utility distribution management systems are likewise not supportive of community microgrids because they are centralized and designed to serve customers from the bulk system. If these central locations are disrupted or offline, local community systems cannot operate, regardless of their DER levels. In mid-2021, Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) was tapped by the Department of Energy (DOE) to study the key technical and business challenges impeding the implementation of community microgrids through the Solar Energy CommUnity REsiliency (SECURE) project. This presentation will highlight the technology advancements and utility perspectives from the project, now in progress. Working with industry partners and electric utilities, the SECURE project aims to remove barriers to community microgrid adoption and optimize the reliability and value of distributed energy resources (DER) during normal conditions.
