All Hands on Deck: Improving Renewable Energy Access for Low-income Communities
Climate change is an all-hands-on-deck challenge, and everyone should be able to participate in the low-carbon economy. But, despite the fact that low-income families are on the front lines of a warming climate, their clean energy adoption lags higher-income customers. Pecan Street will review the reasons for this discrepancy, examine efforts to address it, and preview the organization’s upcoming community-driven research with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory.

Meeting the Infrastructure Needs of the Net-Zero Future
Meeting the Infrastructure Needs of the Net-Zero Future
The always complicated process forced upon developers and builders of new projects for the energy sector gets more challenging and problematic every year. Financial constraints, technology, and connectivity needs, regulatory hurdles, political pressures, and, last but not least, environmental goals and challenges are not always in alignment, so utilities and their partners have hard rows to hoe in bringing those together. A significant part of our build strategy is now planning for weather-related challenges with hurricanes, wildfires, and other natural disasters.  How do we prepare ourselves to keep the grid and infrastructure online or restore as quickly as possible when disaster strikes?  This session will look at how both utilities, developers, and partners navigate the building and install the intelligent equipment needed for Destination 2050.

Combining Fossil Fuels and Renewables: The Perfect Match for Our Changing Climate
For over 100 years the engine-generator has reliably produced electricity for virtually any application everywhere around the world. Renewables, a somewhat newcomer to the scene, a new generation of batteries, and the threat of climate change promises to disrupt the engine generator world. There is an opportunity for everyone to win. That is combining the technologies into systems that cheaply, and reliably, produce electricity while polluting less. This presentation will look at the design of hybrid power systems based on economics and provide solutions as to how everyone wins.

How Local Energy Markets Benefit Distribution Utilities
The local energy market (LEM) enables consumers and prosumers (those who can generate solar photovoltaic energy, for instance), within a defined network topology, to trade renewable energy amongst each other in a peer to peer (P2P) fashion. In this presentation, we showcase the results of a case study utilising Powerledger's blockchain enabled technology using real customer data to evaluate the performance of P2P trading. The results demonstrate mitigation in congestion and lesser dependency on the grid and reducing or deferring capital expenses for network augmentation.

The Increasing Importance of Aero-Derivative On-Demand Power
Around the world, power producers are under pressure to deliver reliable, affordable, decarbonized electricity 24/365. On-demand power based on aero-derivative technology helps producers meet these competing goals. Rapidly expanding renewable energy sources provide zero-carbon generation, but wind and sun vary output. Renewable technologies are also more susceptible to damage from severe weather events such as hurricanes and snow/ice storms that can disrupt existing infrastructure. The changing generation mix from larger central plants to more distributed and intermittent power sources is making the grid less resilient. Due to the rapid growth in demand for electricity, power providers often can’t build out their energy infrastructure assets (generation, distribution, transmission, fuels) quickly enough to serve expanding populations and industry. This demand growth is further accelerated by the electrification of transportation and industrial sectors. Falling capacity margins plus increasing levels of power from intermittent sources, and cybersecurity threats, make it increasingly difficult to maintain grid reliability and power quality. As these issues become more pressing, the need is increasing for on-demand energy systems. We will detail several areas where aero-derivative on-demand power technology is addressing today’s speed imperative: -Ensuring reliable power supply in systems with increasing levels of intermittent renewable energy: Deployment of renewable power and the discovery of significant natural gas reserves in Israel have resulted in a change to the energy mix. A 400 MW natural gas power plant powered by aero-derivatives, capable of fast-start and quick ramp up/down, will provide dependable power that is critical to supporting renewables. -Helping accelerate electrification and economic growth in developing regions: Prior to installing 54 mobile aero-derivative units, regions of Algeria suffered an inadequate power supply and aging infrastructure that caused regular blackouts. Of the 1.3 GW, 350 MW of the additional capacity has been relocated quickly and affordably to address Algeria’s ever-changing needs. -Ideal solution for fast-track and mobile power generation needs: In 2019, PREPA installed three 30 MW mobile aero-derivative units to improve the resiliency of the grid following Hurricane Maria. This technology will help to achieve grid firming when natural disasters hit and will support Puerto Rico’s renewable energy objectives.
