Reslient Power Systems Pitch
Reslient Power Systems Pitch
Dominion Energy Innovation Center's DEIC Accelerate program introduced 15 startups to dozens of business units across Dominion Energy in its first two years. In this session, Adam Sledd of DEIC and Michael Beiro of Linebird will discuss how the program creates value for both the utility and the startups.  They will cover how a startup can maximize its opportunity to quickly build customer relationships, and how the utility benefits from creating a formal framework to engage startup companies.

Designing Resiliency in Aeroderivative Turbine Peaking Facilities
Intensification of decarbonization goals, by both power producers and consumers, has resulted in an abundance of renewable power generation. The intermittent nature of this renewable generation has exacerbated the need for fast, flexible, and reliable peaking power to offer grid firming capabilities. As fossil fuel base-loaded generating facilities continue to be phased out, the resiliency of peaking facilities is critical to public safety and economic stability – especially during times of extreme weather events. Aeroderivative turbines have been a prevailing peaking power technology due to valuable attributes such as faststart, rapid load-following, high availability/reliability, and merchant ancillary services (e.g. frequency regulation, responsive reserves, non-spinning reserve etc.). Additionally, the ability to run on hydrogen fuel blends (and eventually 100% hydrogen fuel) makes them a valuable technology in a future low carbon economy. In a cost-competitive market, both developers and existing owners must holistically consider design requirements for their aeroderivative turbine facility to ensure the economic viability of a project. Turbine packages must be prepared to operate in extreme ambient conditions. The design must consider anti-icing technology to ensure cold-weather operation. Similarly, the design must include performance augmentation options to maintain power output during high ambient temperature. To ensure resiliency, Balance of Plant (BOP) design must ensure a failure on a facility component does not result in lost power. These design considerations include sufficient water and back-up fuel storage, facility winterization, redundancy, and civil seismic/wind rating. Finally, a comprehensive operations strategy coupled with modern remote monitoring and diagnostic capabilities helps ensure continuous availability of the facility. A case-study of a 6x LM6000 facility operating in the ERCOT region during the winter storms of 2021 demonstrates that a peaking facility designed for resiliency can ensure sustained power generation during the most critical demand periods while also offers facility owners the requisite return on investment.

Federal Pollution Permitting Review: Are You Ready for Your Renewal?
As your NPDES permit renewal nears, have you considered what the potential impacts are with changing regulations? New requirements on PFAS, PFOS, nutrients and other constituents may impact your NPDES discharge monitoring requirements? You may also see changes in operational parameters such as flow rates or temperature. Additionally, facilities today are under increasing pressure to operate more sustainably, to reduce their water footprint, to use less fresh water or to minimize or eliminate wastewater discharges. New regulatory requirements may require additional investment in systems or technology to maintain compliance. The readiness review will increase overall understanding of current facility status, current and changing regulatory requirements, and identify the potential operational and financial impacts of those requirements. Understanding your facilities overall water picture is the first step in being ready for your renewal. Thus providing a solid foundation for evaluating and identifying discharge streams at risk for additional requirements; highlighting opportunities to address constituents at the source rather than at the discharge point; and identifying opportunities to conserve, reduce, reuse, and recycle water. This presentation will review recent and potential upcoming regulatory requirements associated with new or additional constituents that may affect your facility and discuss the stages associated with an NPDES readiness review. The presentation will use case studies from operating plants to review the areas in a facilities’ operations where constituents are generated and identify opportunities to address these constituents at the point of generation. The case studies will be used to illustrate the readiness review process which entails reviewing the plant’s full water/wastewater picture to identify the location, type, and quality of water and waste streams, and then summarizing the available and best options for managing the plant’s water use and for maintaining compliance with existing and new regulatory requirements.

Supply Chain Risk Management: Why NERC CIP-013-1 Is Important to Utility Cybersecurity
In an era where the stability of our energy is under constant threat from bad actors, the game has evolved. It is not a question of simple software hacks or DOS, now the threat can come from the inside. To combat this threat, the Federal Government has legislated additional steps required to mitigate the potential impact to our electrical infrastructure, nowhere more importantly than generation facilities. The foundation of North America’s grid stability is reliant upon the thousands of generators, and to impact that would be catastrophic. And this not just a risk to BPS facilities, but to all grid connected generation. Accordingly NERC CIP-013-1 addresses the need to understand the supply chain that encompasses where equipment is sourced, how it is designed and requires due diligence into where and who supplies the intelligent components that are subsequent to a critical system. Learn how to recognize this impact, assess the risk and plan for a more robust future

How Utilities Are Embracing Sustainability and ESG as a Strategic Advantage
Sponsored by Appian: ESG has quickly become a top priority for organizations across all sectors and impacts nearly all areas of operations. Organizations are challenged with the complexities of capturing information across business units, monitoring progress towards carbon emissions, sustainability and diversity and inclusion goals, and reporting on performance to stakeholders. As ESG regulations continue to shape and solidify globally, it can also be difficult to keep up with the evolving requirements. In this session, learn how a large energy company has developed an ESG solution on Appian that simplifies complexities and allows for real-time performance visibility, auditing, workflow assignments, and reporting.

The Role of Turbomachinery Innovation in Enabling the Hydrogen Revolution
Sponsored by Baker Hughes: Hydrogen is experiencing unprecedented momentum and is considered a critical pillar in the energy transition. More than 200 hydrogen projects have been announced and around $80B of mature investment have been estimated. Transport and storage costs will play a significant role in the competitiveness of hydrogen. If hydrogen can be used close to its point of production, these costs can be maintained relatively low. However, if hydrogen fuel must travel a long way before it can be used, the costs of transmission and distribution can be three times higher than the cost of hydrogen production. Hydrogen compression is a fundamental step in the transportation and storage of hydrogen and continuous improvements are required to enable the hydrogen economy to scale up. The greatest technological challenges when it comes to hydrogen compression are certainly the high pressures that are required for the various fields of use, the need to maintain a clean gas and therefore free from contamination, and to use materials that are not subject to embrittlement. Challenges and opportunities in the enabling role that turbomachinery plays in lowering the cost of production will feature in this presentation including the latest Baker Hughes compression and turbine innovation including case studies.
