Workplace diversity is becoming a more common conversation in the business world and placing a focus on diversity and inclusion should extend farther than the hiring department. Diversity is a range of human differences, including but not limited to race, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, social class, physical ability or attributes, religious or ethical values, national origin, veteran status, and political beliefs. Join us for a networking lunch to hear industry leaders speak on the topic of diversity in the workplace and share the best practices they have experienced in this space.

On the Future of Work + Working
On the Future of Work + Working
Whether we have more jobs or less is a debate only time will settle, but there is no doubt 100% of jobs will be reskilled. How we work and Why is being recalibrated, and society overall will take a radical shift as we head into what has been described as the Fourth Industrial Revolution. How can we build the new capacities necessary? How will new tools shape new behaviors and drive new expectations? Which old practices to manage risk are actually now putting us at risk? And how will we measure we are doing it right?

Decarbonizing Water – How Placer County Water Agency Is Preparing for Electrons as the New Fuel
Sponsored by Black & Veatch: As a provider of (pollution-free) water to their customers, decarbonization and resiliency are always among Placer County Water Agency’s top goals. As PCWA plans for a reduction in their carbon footprint, they are especially reimagining their fleet with zero-emission vehicles. In conjunction with moving towards a zero-emission fleet, they are also looking at their facilities to supply on-site renewable energy, to further reduce their emissions from their electricity needs. PCWA is an essential utility and must supply clean water to their customers, especially during emergency events. Resiliency is a significant consideration at every step of their planning. Changes in weather patterns and an increased number of natural disasters (such as hurricanes, forest fires, etc.) only add to the importance of planning for resiliency – for their facility and now also for their zero-emission fleet. This presentation will address the following, with examples from PCWA’s experiences: Fleet energy planning – Type of decarbonized vehicle (battery electric or hydrogen fuel cell electric) to consider for the fleet, the corresponding energy, and infrastructure needs. Decarbonized energy planning – based on the type of decarbonized vehicle technology, various considerations for fueling these vehicles with renewable energy sources. Resiliency – planning for long-duration outages and considerations for energy generation + storage infrastructure on-site that can provide needed backup power for an emergency operation scenario.

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.

The Energy-Water Nexus: Opportunities and Case Studies for Renewable Energy Production & Energy Market Drivers in the Water Industry
This presentation will begin with a general overview of the role and importance of energy in the treatment of water and wastewater. It will include background in on the energy usage for the treatment of water and wastewater facilities and a review of the renewed focus for “resource recovery” and driving net zero for energy neutrality at these facilities. The presentation will particularly focus on the opportunities for renewable energy generation at water treatment facilities. It will include some detailed review of two functioning case studies of renewable energy generation at several wastewater facilities. One project case studies include a operational project in Greater Lawrence Sanitation District in Andover, MA. This facility receives outside source separated organics (SSO) which are diverted from municipal solid waste and serves as a feedstock to the facilities anaerobic digestion process. The digestion process produces biogas which is utilized onsite in a 3.2MW combined heat and power (CHP) system which generates power and heat utilized onsite. The second project case study will be an overview of the bioenergy program at the Des Moines Wastewater Reclamation Facility (WRF) in Des Moines Iowa. This facility receives over 20,000 tanker trucks a year of outside organic wastes. These organic wastes are fed to anaerobic digesters which generated significant flows of approximately 1,800 scfm of biogas. The biogas produced is fed to a Renewable Natural Gas (RNG) processing system which processes the biogas into high-quality RNG for pipeline injection. This presentation will include a detailed review of the project drivers, economics, and revenue generated from the program which successfully started up for pipeline injection in early 2020. The presentation will also include a discussion on the policy implications of both the federal Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) and state (California Low Carbon Fuel Standard - LCFS) including an overview of the Renewable Identification Number (RINs) environmental attributes and the fuel pathways applicable to biogas and RNG produced from these sources. It will include various revenue scenarios applicable to renewable energy generation projects under these federal and state programs. The presentation will wrap up with an overview of the synergy between energy and water including a review and overview of industry drivers and opportunities for energy generation and private partners in the water industry.

The Repowering of a Remote Independent Power Grid
What does it take to Engineer, Procure and Construct a combined cycle power plant including a liquified natural gas (LNG) Storage and Re-gasification Facility in a remote location with limited access? Siemens Energy, with POWER Engineers as the Designer of Record, is doing just that in a location where the local grid is completely isolated from the commercial grid, meaning the facility must be completely and reliably energy self-sufficient. The existing facility has aging oil-fired generators which were due for major upgrades, but rather than invest in the aging technology, Siemens companies (lead by Siemens Government Technologies) were engaged through an Energy Savings Performance Contract (ESPC) to not just reshape the existing microgrid, but to reinvent and modernize it with a combination of renewable energy, battery energy storage and a plethora of building energy conservation measures. An impressive piece of this puzzle is the nominal 20 MW 2x1 combined cycle power plant, comprised of two Siemens Energy SGT-A05 gas turbines and a 10 MW Siemens Energy SST-300EP steam turbine tied to an air-cooled condenser. Reliable power generation being a priority, clean-burning natural gas (via the LNG storage and conversion to NG facility) is the primary fuel with oil backup just in case. The challenges of designing and fitting the requisite equipment on a narrow peninsula of hard coral is only surpassed by the challenges of constructing it. This presentation will cover the highlights, obstacles, and successes in executing such an interesting project.
