Energy Transitions in the Power Sector: A Path to Carbon Neutrality
Global electricity demand is set to increase three times by 2070, driven by economic growth and expansion. To meet this growth while reducing carbon footprint, the rapid adoption of CO2 reduction technologies is a pathway for sustainable growth. This presentation will provide an overview of the technology and recent developments. Carbon Capture Technology: The first step is deciding which assets to target, and then selecting an appropriate technology optimized for that operation. Technologies are ready today that can be deployed at scale-based for any number of factors. Learn about different carbon capture technologies to help achieve your CO2 emission targets. Storage, EOR & Carbon Sinks: IEA’s sustainable development scenario shows that over 90% of the world’s captured CO2 will need sequestration, but there are other options based on several factors. Learn of different industries that can put carbon to use.

Leadership Summit
Utility Communication Infrastructure: Mission Critical Private Networks – The Catalyst for Utilities’ Digital Transformation
Utility Communication Infrastructure: Mission Critical Private Networks – The Catalyst for Utilities’ Digital Transformation
A fireside chat with the executive leadership from two major IOUs – Southern Co. and Exelon Corp. We will hear their perspectives on the role that capital investments in private networks play toward grid modernization strategies, and how Private-LTE networks can help accelerate a utility’s digital transformation journey. This session will have plenty of opportunities for the audience to engage in a dialog with the panel.

The True Costs of Financing Decarbonization
Session to Identify some of the key federal and state/utility incentives that may act as catalysts or game changers in decarbonization.  Some may influence how equity partners invest in generation, how utilities can access funding for transition, how disruptors (ESCO, Bitcoin, Residential scale, EVs) can change the market conditions and others.  The focus of the panel will be on the economics and financial incentives rather than regulatory drivers.  The session should provide answers to some key questions utilities are asking today: What are the policy incentives going to be and what should they be? Will federal incentives work for IPPs, COOPs, Public power, IOUs Example. Will they function like Section 45Q for Carbon storage – tax credit that now has portability feature to sell it/monetize it at a discount for those without tax authority/liability How are utilities going to track their carbonization metrics? Discussion points with ITC, Direct pay and other mechanisms that are being used in marketspace today to drive work?

Leadership Summit
Decarbonization – Getting to 2035: Technology Interdependencies and Options - the View from DC
Decarbonization – Getting to 2035: Technology Interdependencies and Options - the View from DC
The future of energy in Texas and the US is one of carbon-free promise, but numerous challenges face us in designing and operating an electricity system that does not emit greenhouse gasses. What is the best way to meet growing consumer demand for power while ensuring resiliency and reliability? How can we address potential disruptions to natural gas supply, given limited storage and transportation capacity? And how do we manage these challenges within a changing regulatory environment? Mario Azar, President of Power Business at Black & Veatch will kick off the Leadership Summit with a short introduction. Join us for a conversation with former US Secretary of Energy and former Governor of Texas, Rick Perry, and Brad Jones, Acting CEO of ERCOT. They have tackled energy challenges throughout the country and will weigh in on the unique issues that lie ahead as we march toward the Net-Zero Future.

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?

Reducing the Carbon Footprint of Utility Scale Wind Energy Projects
As new wind farms are developed and existing farms repowered, thoughtful consideration must be taken into the technology selection and layout of the project. There is a new trend in the wind energy industry that leverages new large-scale wind turbines with rated capacity that is significantly higher than the industry standard over the past 5 years. By taking advantage of these new designs, there are also additional benefits in regards to wind resource capacity factors due to increased hub heights. Large scale technology ultimately allows for broader project adoption in previously underutilized geographies. Additionally, new innovations in the area of wind turbine support structures, including novel tower and foundation design; allow for the realization of cost effective tall towers and optimized turbine foundations. Such foundations utilize much smaller amounts of concrete and reinforcing steel. The application of some of the new novel foundation designs, would vastly reduce the amount of CO2 emissions that occur within the concrete, steel fabrication and the overall transportation emissions. Innovation in blade design is also a large factor in enabling the deployment of such large turbines. Lastly the infrastructure that is put in place, for example access roads and collection system within the project site, will be reduced due to less turbines required to achieve the targeted power generation capacity. Collectively all the above trends lead to significant reduction in carbon footprint for the operational project. This results in a smaller number of utilization factors for the construction activities and eventual operations and maintenance. This reduced carbon footprint comes with cost benefits pertaining to construction, O&M and lifetime extension mechanisms that are put in place for these projects. This session will focus on strategies, technology and methods for the reduction of carbon footprint for forthcoming utility scale wind power projects.
