Power Challenges Bigger than Texas: Addressing Resource Adequacy, Resiliency and Security in an Uncertain World with Rick Perry, Massoud Amin & Julia Matevosyan
Power Challenges Bigger than Texas: Addressing Resource Adequacy, Resiliency and Security in an Uncertain World with Rick Perry, Massoud Amin & Julia Matevosyan
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 electrical system to meet the growing demand for power while ensuring resiliency, reliability, and security. How do we manage these challenges within a changing regulatory regime and with an evolving threat environment? Deepa Poduval, Vice President & Global Advisory Leader at Black & Veatch kicks off the Leadership Summit with a short introduction. Following his remarks will be a conversation with former US Secretary of Energy and former Governor of Texas, Rick Perry, Massoud Amin, professor of Electrical Engineering at the University of Minnesota, and Julia Matevosyan, Chief Engineer at ESIG Energy. This give-and-take discussion will offer a candid assessment of the policy, technology, and cybersecurity issues that are crucial to the bulk power system’s future.

How Flexible, Dispatchable Fuel Cells Can Stabilize the Grid
Sponsored by Plug Power: To make our carbon reduction goals a reality, our electric grids must use a significant amount of renewable but intermittent resources.  Integrating solar and wind at a meaningful scale will require solutions to critical challenges including (1) seasonal discrepancies in electricity generation (2) dispatchable clean supply with fast ramp rates for supply-side balancing and (3) zero emission sources of energy to fill in the gaps.  The world was built using fossil fuels but the path to zero and net zero electricity requires an ecosystem of devices that work together to maximize solar and wind energy.  Fuel cells and hydrogen are two of the key devices that can be deployed in tandem with solar and wind assets to enable a zero-carbon future. Plug is building an end-to-end green hydrogen ecosystem to bring renewable energy to customers around the globe, helping them meet their business and sustainability goals. Plug Power is a leading manufacturer of fuel cells, hydrogen systems and green hydrogen. This session will cover our commercially available PEM technologies and provide a glimpse toward the future.  We will explain how PEM fuel cells coupled with green hydrogen can help meet carbon reduction goals.

Hydrogen CHP: The Lowest Cost, Least Risky Way to Net-zero
As nations on a large scale and businesses on a smaller scale are making commitments worldwide to reduce carbon emissions, hydrogen is considered an important part of the solution as we look to the future. 2G Energy’s Combined Heat and Power units with a reciprocating engine as the prime mover have now entered the field of hydrogen use, with the world’s first reciprocating engine CHP that runs on 100% hydrogen fuel. These engines are highly efficient, field-tested, and are more robust and less expensive than fuel cells. Hydrogen is used as a climate-neutral fuel in the CHP system in order to convert it back into electricity and also heat or cold in an efficient, economically attractive, and environmentally friendly way. With zero carbon emissions, hydrogen CHP is the energy supply of the future. Several case study examples of hydrogen CHP are now in operation in Europe. The Berlin Airport, APEX Group, and Stadtwerk haBfurt in Germany, and Orkney Airport in Scotland all have implemented 2G CHP systems using hydrogen as fuel and incorporate reciprocating CHP into their larger-scale projects.

Firing H2 in the Real World: Lessons Learned and Project Outcomes
Firing hydrogen or primarily hydrogen is a definitive way to reduce carbon emissions and operating fuel costs. However, without the right knowledge and technical specifications in place, firing H2 can be dangerous and lead to increased NOx formation. Typical low-NOx burners may not be capable of firing H2 without flashback issues or damage to the burner or boiler. This presentation will examine why H2 is different than traditional fuel gas steams and the impact of those differences on flame characteristics, burner design, refractory materials, control systems, and emissions. We will use data from both new and retrofit installations to illustrate how properly engineering a system to fire H2 can generate multiple benefits.

Decarbonization – Getting to 2035: Technology Interdependencies and Options - the View from “The Trenches” Across the Globe
Decarbonization – Getting to 2035: Technology Interdependencies and Options - the View from “The Trenches” Across the Globe
Heads of companies and thought leaders discuss specific challenges they have to meet their decarbonization goals or those set by government agencies, and how R&D can help individual companies and industries. The panel would focus on specific challenges and opportunities industries are facing, on electrification and its limits, and on specific measures/technologies needed.

Leadership Summit
Meeting the Infrastructure Needs of the Net-Zero Future
Meeting the Infrastructure Needs of the Net-Zero Future
The always complicated process forced upon developers and builders of new projects for the energy sector gets more challenging and problematic every year. Financial constraints, technology, and connectivity needs, regulatory hurdles, political pressures, and, last but not least, environmental goals and challenges are not always in alignment, so utilities and their partners have hard rows to hoe in bringing those together. A significant part of our build strategy is now planning for weather-related challenges with hurricanes, wildfires, and other natural disasters.  How do we prepare ourselves to keep the grid and infrastructure online or restore as quickly as possible when disaster strikes?  This session will look at how both utilities, developers, and partners navigate the building and install the intelligent equipment needed for Destination 2050.
