Keeping the Whole Dam Thing Running: The True Cost of “Running to Failure”
Sponsored by SPI Utilities Solutions: Failures often stem from lapsed and deferred maintenance and cleaning routines and can lead to financial losses that rapidly add up. This is the story of how both innovative technology and insightful thinking were used to determine fault locations that led to unplanned outages and establish maintenance programs that allow power plant maintenance teams to affect repairs and safeguard against future failures.

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.

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.

How to Execute a Successful RFP for a Gas Turbine Long Term Service Agreement (LTSA)
Long Term Service Agreements for gas turbines stand as one of the most critical and complex documents underlying any gas-fired power project. Three trends have emerged that will shape any new or re-negotiated LTSA: (1) contracts have continued to evolve with suppliers taking more risk and extending coverages (2) competition among LTSA providers is increasing with OEMs moving beyond their own equipment to service other manufacturers and (3) renewable energy is poised to reverse the trend of principally base load gas turbine operation. What does this mean for an owner? First, any new contract or renewal should be benchmarked and bid to multiple providers and second, the contracts should allow for changes in operation. With many original 501 and F-Class LTSAs reaching expiration or renewal points, there is a strong "Buyer's market" for turbine owners. Turbine owners now have many options and unprecedented bargaining power, but with those options, increased effort is required to build the bid package, assure an effective supplier to supplier comparison, and to extract the maximum supplier value from the marketplace. Even if the Owner remains under contract with its current LTSA provider, the competitive review undertaken as part of an RFP will enable the Owner to understand and address both current and developing market trends. As part of the RFP process, the Owner will want to put itself in a position to effectively evaluate a number of considerations, including: - How does an Owner elicit from the marketplace additional options and enhanced coverages that may now be available? - How does an Owner determine which type of program is best for its future needs? - How does one design an RFP program that adeptly communicates the desired coverage in a unified manner that will be equally understood across all potential vendors? - Does the RFP properly cost effectively address significant part load or cyclic operation resulting from increased renewable generation? Is this operation reflected in Owner cost projections? - Should the RFP include an LTSA Term Sheet or a full-blown LTSA contract, and why? What are the pros and cons of each approach? - If an LTSA Term Sheet is used as part of the RFP, what are the key provisions that should be covered? And what major issues must Owners anticipate will be the subject of intense negotiation?
