Leadership Summit
Decarbonization – Getting to 2035: Technology Interdependencies and Options - the View from “The Trenches” Across the Globe
Decarbonization – Getting to 2035: Technology Interdependencies and Options - the View from “The Trenches” Across the Globe
Heads of companies and thought leaders discuss specific challenges they have to meet their decarbonization goals or those set by government agencies, and how R&D can help individual companies and industries. The panel would focus on specific challenges and opportunities industries are facing, on electrification and its limits, and on specific measures/technologies needed.

Current and Future Technologies to Increase Stability and Resiliency of the Modern Power Grid
Power grid complexity has increased with the integration of renewable-based resources.  Rotating Synchronous Machines and Power Electronics solutions guarantee the long-term stability and resilience of these power grids by providing critical stability parameters such as system inertia, short circuit power, and reactive power. In addition shutdown of conventional power generation sources increases the need for these grid stabilization solutions at strategic interconnection points. These solutions have been successfully implemented in regions pioneering the use of renewable energy including Western North America, Europe, and Australia.

For this presentation, we will focus mainly on the provision of system inertia and short circuit power. We will present and discuss in detail current and potential future solutions that can provide these required grid ancillary services. Grid stabilization solutions are presented for unmanned stations with outputs in the range of 500MVar reactive power, 2000MVA short circuit power, and up to 4000MW·s rotating inertia contribution, without the use of hydrogen cooling. Such solutions can be realized as New-Build or by conversion of existing power plants. 

Potential future technology mixes that combine generation, stabilization, and storage solutions are also presented.  Hybrid power trains have the flexibility to provide grid ancillary services as well as active power for load balancing.

Harnessing AI and Engineering for Optimal Reliability in Power Generation and Distribution Networks
Sponsored by Symphony Industrial AI: Asset reliability and process professionals face an enormous challenge to tame the tsunami of data and turn it into useful information. Sensor data is growing 50 times faster than business data with only 2% of it being used!  By 2025 the number of devices will double to 21 billion.  AI alone is not sufficient to determine cause and actions without raising false positives. A must going forward is the ability to create models that harness AI’s processing power and the expert’s understanding of operating nuances. The methodology involves building fit-for purpose anomaly and performance digital twins that work in tandem with process knowledge, failure library (FMEA) engines and advisory rule engines. The digital twin detects faults, finds efficient zones, and allows “what-if” scenarios to create the best possible outcomes and capture operating dynamics in real-time. Armed with this data, the twin “self-learns” to adaptively adjust parameters that drive higher energy efficiency and lower emissions. In this presentation, we will explore optimizers, that working with plant controls, can improve the heat rate of coal-fired boilers, lower emissions, and reduce boiler tube failures and condenser leakages. Imbalance in electrical systems can be spotted early and faulty areas isolated to ensure overall network performance with high uptime and power factors.

Energy Storage for the Grid as Used by Utilities – Case Studies & Lessons Learned
Decades ago, high energy prices created market entry points for Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS). Since then, market conditions have expanded coverage and evolved, and now battery energy storage is as inexpensive as it has ever been, and declining year over year, opening new markets as the cost of traditional solutions is more expensive than a BESS solution. Many different applications of BESS have been installed and operated: frequency regulation, frequency reserves; energy arbitrage; renewable energy smoothing, and time-shifting; to non-wires-alternatives that substitute for building out new transmission and distribution lines to customers. In this session, three case studies for three different customers will be discussed and lessons learned and recommendations to paths forward will be identified.
