Firm or Not to Firm? Making a Weatherproof Plan for Power Plants
Over the past decade, the United States has been transitioning electric generation from a predominately coal-fired generating fleet to a natural gas-fired and renewable portfolio. This is certainly the case in the wind-rich areas of the Midwest and Texas. While certainly producing more emissions, coal-fired resources did have two distinct advantages for providing reliable electricity: 1) a fuel source that had few competing uses and 2) a long-term, economical storage method for fuel. The power generation portfolio is becoming much more based on intermittent renewables and just-in-time fuel based natural gas-fired resources. A vast majority of the time, the natural gas production and delivery system can meet the needs of customers. However, in mid-February of 2021 Winter Storm Uri show us the vulnerability of the electric system. The system was not prepared to respond to such high demands in such extreme cold temperatures. At best, power generators received natural gas priced at 8 to 10 times normal pricing. At worst, natural gas was curtailed to many generators and they were unable to produce electricity when their customers needed it most. The result…prolonged rolling brown outs. Power generators needed firm, on-site fuel. This presentation will discuss 1) the options available for providing firm fuel backup at gas-fired power plants (ex., fuel oil, LNG, propane) for both existing and new power plants, 2) the advantages and challenges associated with each option, and 3) a cost-benefit evaluation comparing costs and market revenues.

Advances in Condition Monitoring for Remote Power Generation Systems
The reliability of remote, auxiliary, and standby power generation stations has become increasingly important due to the increased usage. A systems health can now be monitored in real time without the need of an increase in filed technician labor. This presentation introduces the recent advances in equipment condition monitoring technology that will allow you to be continuously aware of your systems performance as well as indications of emerging problems.

Preparing for Energy Markets with Automated Optimization of Customer Energy Assets
In the Commercial and Industrial sector, distributed energy resources (DERs) have become increasingly pervasive, driven in part by available market revenue streams and accelerated by falling hardware prices for storage and renewable generation, available incentives, and increasingly sophisticated financing offerings. However, up until now participation in markets has largely been executed through singularly-directed or static strategies. For example, DER project owners and operators that only participate in capacity programs, which require load reduction commitments ahead of time, often leave value on the table. The next phase of a reliable and clean energy mix will not necessarily center around more DERs but around the better use of DERs. Millie Knowlton, Senior Manager of Strategy and Business Development at CPower Energy Management, will present on how to look across the entire continuum of energy value from both grid service programs and on-bill savings programs. Knowlton will share data from customer case studies over the past six months in PJM that leverage artificial intelligence-based optimization of on-site assets to illustrate the incremental value that can be captured when energy value streams are optimized. The presentation will educate on how to move underutilized assets further along the energy value continuum to participate in more services and value streams. Knowlton will cover market and energy programs that couple well together, depending on each asset type. Additionally, by leveraging automated optimization, project owners can better align the incentives of on-site improvements for greater returns from market participation. To help the audience determine the maximized value potential of their assets, the presentation will leverage CPower’s experience working with over 11,000 customer sites and across all types of assets from traditional back-up generators to energy storage. It will use case studies to illustrate the necessary components to scheduling, bidding, and dispatching assets on an ongoing basis, including the hardware, software, operational and compliance requirements. For site owners and third-party project owners or operators to earn the maximum value potential from DERs, they will need to be able to seamlessly balance priorities and make decisions based on changing information. Only then can DERs fully contribute to a more resilient grid.
