Making The Most Of A Utility Accelerator Program
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.

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?

Our Industry’s Siloed Approach to Managing Visitors and Contingent Workers Is Creating Unacceptable Risk
Sponsored by Force 5 Solutions: Most power utilities have a fragmented approach to managing risk at their points of entry. Here, safety, security, and compliance often make decisions in silos and deploy a disconnected technology stack. At this intersection is great risk. Geared toward safety and security leaders, we’ll provide examples from power utilities across all six NERC regions and discuss how we can strengthen the points of entry (from substations to generation to corporate lobbies) in every location of our critical enterprises.

Hybrid Analytics to Improve Steam Generation Plants
The future role of coal plants will depend on the ability to cycle and follow loads to meet marginal power demands, accommodate renewables and support the grid. Essential to success in this new role is a plant’s ability to maintain high reliability, efficiency and flexibility. However, these changing operational demands put significant stresses on power plant components that directly impact the ability to deliver these requirements. In the past, plants have independently monitored performance using physics-based solutions (heat rate, boiler losses, etc.) and reliability using data-driven analytics (advanced pattern recognition). This presentation will share results from a DOE-funded project to improve the efficiency, reliability and flexibility of existing coal-based power plants using a Hybrid Analytics Solution. The Hybrid Analytics Solution utilizes a novel approach to integrate: a) an established, advanced data-driven analytics solution that includes artificial intelligence, advanced pattern recognition and machine-learning techniques and b) a well-proven, first principle thermal heat balance model solution. The Hybrid Solution integrates machine learning based data analytics with thermal analysis in a manner that enables increased accuracy and scope of the thermal analysis resulting in improved ability of the data analytics to monitor changes in plant operation. A fully operational Hybrid Analytics Solution has been installed at a 600MW coal-fired plant at Ameren and is being used to monitor outcomes 24/7 as part of the fleet monitoring initiative. Initial results reveal that the Hybrid Solution may be able to recognize patterns of operation involving the fuel composition, excess oxygen, measured gas temperatures, air leakages, tube bank metal temperatures and heat transfer rates, fuel moisture content, steam/water temperatures and boiler efficiency. With the hybrid analytics solution operators will be able to understand these patterns to find “sweet-spots” where plant performance is optimized and optimize control strategies for flexible plant operation.
