Carbon Capture as Part of the Energy Transition
With new legislation and financial incentives for GHG reductions developing across the world, as well as corporate sustainability and net-zero goals, there is an increasing focus on methods to decarbonize the power sector and beyond. This presentation will focus on the role CO2 capture can play as a key decarbonization pathway in the transition to a net-zero carbon electricity sector. This presentation will discuss the current state of development of CO2 capture technologies, including direct air capture, and infrastructure and the ways in which CO2 capture can be applied to address near-term and long-term decarbonization goals. Market drivers, incentives, and regulations that would impact the deployment of CO2 capture technologies will be discussed. This presentation will also discuss key considerations that could impact the economics and feasibility of implementing these projects.

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.

The Opportunity for Propane in Microgrids: a Case Study of Partnering to Decarbonize Power
Sponsored by Propane Education Research: Come listen to the Founder and CEO of BoxPower and Senior Director of Global Industrial Solutions for Generac along with staff from the Propane Education & Research Council present user success stories of using propane as back-up power for microgrids. There is a world of opportunity for propane with microgrids. Today’s microgrid applications with propane include power for a homeless village, a community of tiny houses with families and power for areas vulnerable to wildfires. Come see why propane is clean, efficient and the right choice for your next project. Propane is Energy for Everyone.

Solar Generation Grid Volatility – Examination of Impact of Blending Solar into the Modern Power Grid
This paper examines some of the unique challenges associated with large scale implementation of utility scale solar PV generation on the US power grid, highlighting some of the issues which have or may potentially arise. The paper covers some of the lessons learned from solar PV output studies including the effects of cloud crossings, as well as overcast days and the somewhat random nature of all renewable generation resources today and what effects this can have on other fossil fueled generation in operation on the grid. Volatility in generation output is one of the main challenges which is found to be increased when large amounts of solar power are added to the grid. The paper seeks to discuss the expected outcomes of higher and higher amounts of random renewable generation and how as responsible engineers the technical community can take steps to manage some of the negative operational and economic impacts of higher volatility before it becomes a more significant problem in the future. The author shares data from output studies carried out on portions of the USA grid, as well as a very useful data set from one of the largest solar research installations in the world having been a member of the team which developed and designed that facility in Australia. The paper shares some of the understanding based on the author’s years of design and development R&D and studies of how the output volatility from larger installations of solar PV can be somewhat mitigated by the close proximity to other generation sources and storage to further mitigate the effects of volatility on the grid.

How to Optimize Your Investments in Decarbonization
To achieve a carbon-free grid by 2035 and a U.S. decarbonization economy by 2050, the Power sector will require an extensive amount of capital investment to ensure the infrastructure supports a clean, resilient grid. In this panel, we will first explore the full array of emerging carbon-free technologies and associated decarbonization investment opportunities impacting the Power sector. Then, we will shift focus to share how cross sector convergence and market players access the value chain can optimize capital investment strategies, including covering government stimulus and emerging regulatory measures at the federal and state level to accelerate the own decarbonization plans. This moderated panel will include key insights from EY industry experts and several utility executives.
