One year later: Lessons Learned from Winter Storm Uri and How Demand-side Solutions Can Help Address Remaining Vulnerabilities
In February 2021 the Texas grid was just minutes away from total, uncontrollable blackouts that would have gone on for weeks if the load shed hadn’t been in place. At the time, demand response was an underutilized resource in Texas and it continues to be overlooked. DR may not have been able to address every issue that arose during the 2021 storm, but it can certainly help prevent future challenges -- especially as more wind and solar come on the grid. As we approach the one-year anniversary of the storm, CPower's Joe Hayden will explore what we have learned and changed, and what more should be done.

STEP Demo: Generating Efficient Power with Transformational sCO2 Technology
The Gas Technology Institute (GTI®), Southwest Research Institute® (SwRI®) and General Electric Global Research (GE-GR) are executing the “STEP” [Supercritical Transformational Electric Power] project, to design, construct, commission, and operate an integrated and reconfigurable 10 MWe sCO2 [supercritical CO2] Pilot Plant Test Facility. The $155.7* million project is funded with $115 million from the US DOE’s National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL Award Number DE-FE0028979) and $40.7* million (*including building investment) from the team members, equipment suppliers, and others interested in sCO2 technology. The presentation and panel session will discuss the attributes the sCO2 power cycles can offer a wide range of power applications and how the project is a significant step toward sCO2 cycle based power generation commercialization and is informing the performance, operability, and scale-up to commercial plants. Secondly, the presentation provides a description of the pilot facility and an update of the project’s progress, including first-of-a-kind equipment challenges, delivery, and installation. These efforts have already provided valuable lessons learned for technology commercialization. The pilot facility is currently under construction at SwRI’s San Antonio, Texas, USA campus. Now well into Phase 2, a ground-breaking was held in October of 2018, and civil work and the construction of a dedicated 22,000 ft2 building is complete. Finally, a top-level review of the planned testing will be provided focusing on the operations and tests needed to mature the technology and provide traceable performance characteristics that can be translated to commercial scale benefits.

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.
