The Plant Management Institute prides itself on being an open forum for free-flowing conversations about the challenges facing today’s plant manager/resource manager. With the power industry needing to address numerous changes to operations, some of the topics we normally cover have taken on new meanings or directions.

Now more than ever, it’s time to reconnect with your peers to share stories of the challenges, and your solutions to these challenges that have been tried and tested. 

If you are tasked with running a power plant, responsible for the resources that supply power, or are in a supervisory role, this program is geared for you. We will open the event with a top-of-mind, roundtable discussion, and as topics become evident, we will consider those that are most important to a plant’s successful operation. We will then look as a group at those challenges, discussing those that are critical for operations, and also those that may not be critical, but also can’t be ignored.  


Join us for this full-day forum of open discussion, where we will share lessons learned and concerns for addressing issues arising today.

College campuses, business sites, and other complexes have become proving grounds for innovative distributed energy technologies. Universities are setting sustainability goals and looking to reduce their carbon footprints by producing their own power. Local governments are looking at microgrids to ensure public safety in emergencies, upgrade existing infrastructure, and help reach their own climate goals. Our host resort, the Gaylord Rockies, has a combined heat and power set-up that provides more than 90% of the site’s electrical and thermal needs. We’ll hear from those who planned, designed, and are implementing distributing energy resources to power facilities and provide models for how institutions can realize cost savings, achieve climate goals, and ensure a supply of reliable and resilient power for their locations.

More and more, organizations find themselves needing to put their money where their mouth is when it comes to environmental, social, and governance (ESG) goals. At the same time, extreme weather means organizations need to harden their operations against outages. It's a balancing act with three competing drivers: sustainability, affordability and resiliency. How exactly are manufacturers supposed to drive fast and furious carbon reduction goals while still reducing costs and ensuring more reliable backup power for their operations? Can resiliency and sustainability help them gain a competitive advantage when the supply chain is disrupted? What are the steps they need to take to achieve the coveted energy trifecta? We'll look at customer case studies such as Bausch + Lomb and discuss how new funding options and incentives make now the best time to install distributed generation. Attendees will learn: • How sustainability and resiliency can help them adapt in these times of disruption • How to push through challenges to find the right energy balance • Which financing mechanisms and sustainable and resiliency solutions are the most promising for organizations • Why collaboration across industries can better help organizations achieve their own energy trifecta"

To achieve the ultimate goal of decarbonizing the power sector, we will need enough clean energy to meet total consumption in every hour of every day. However, the reality is that many of the RECs being used to measure progress toward decarbonization goals represent energy produced months earlier by a solar or wind farm 1,000 miles away from the customer. Unless the clean energy you buy covers 100 percent of your energy use at the time and place you use it, research shows that you're likely still getting a large portion of your energy from polluting sources. For example, a Princeton study found that a typical customer in the PJM region using RECs to match 100% of demand on an annual basis would only be using 62 percent clean energy when evaluated on an hourly matching basis. In the proposed session, industry experts will do a deep dive into how clean energy policies can evolve to reflect the matching of clean energy production to consumption at the point in time and location that the energy is being used. Panelists would discuss the benefits of a 24/7 approach to clean energy procurement and the steps that policymakers and companies are taking to implement 24/7 strategies. Panelists also would review the transactional, technical and compliance enhancements necessary to match energy production and consumption on an hourly basis and support corporate sustainability goals.

A more dynamic and flexible grid is needed to meet the needs of the 21st century. Distributed energy resource (DER) systems are accelerating this grid modernization. Utilities like Arizona Public Service (APS) are utilizing DERs to their advantage. Now, APS is evolving its DER program to be even more valuable in the future. How will the next phase of DER programs increase value for utilities and their customers? How can utilities be a part of C&I customer's resiliency programs from the start? What are the steps you need to take to offer your own resiliency program? In this panel session, Enchanted Rock's Allan Schurr and Arizona Public Service's Judson Tillinghast will share insights gleaned from APS' resiliency program and explore the benefits of DERs to utilities, their customers, and their communities.

Utility grids are undergoing two-way transformation, with top-down systems driving change through markets, and technology innovation and bottom-up buildouts of customer distributed energy resource (DER) ecosystems leveraging the grid in new ways. However, when making program planning decisions, today's utility software systems lack visibility into half of this equation: a blind spot exists regarding available capacity behind-the-meter (BTM).

 

Generac has identified more than 13 GW of distributed energy resource (DER) capacity sitting behind the meters of U.S. utility customers, and the company will share visibility on how the flexible capacity available for dispatch is paramount when designing successful utility programs. Generac experts will take you beyond understanding capacity sums and how utilities must be aware of DERs' locational information, without giving away customers' personal information.


 Come and see how geographic visualizations of DERs not only let utilities plan strategic load management programs, they also share where excess generation from storage and generators may be able to provide distribution system support at the substation or feeder level.

Our energy landscape is rapidly changing, particularly in the electric power sector. Renewable energy adoption is increasing at a rapid rate, and around the U.S. even more ambitious 100% renewable energy targets are being set by companies, states, utilities, and regulators. The exact recipe is not defined on how to technically reach these targets. In the midst of the progress toward decarbonizing our energy systems, utility stakeholders face the challenge of making long-term decisions about technology investments, continuing to meet demand generation, retiring coal, nuclear, and gas inflexible baseload plants, and dealing with the resultant reliability concerns created by large scale intermittent renewable energy resources in the system--all in the face of constantly shifting energy markets, regulations, and technology developments. This session will provide utility decision-makers with how Wärtsilä solutions can help address these challenges. Jon Rodriguez, Energy Business Director at Wärtsilä, will focus on two applications for Wärtsilä solutions along with real-world examples. The applications discussed will include balancing renewables with engine power plants, as well as with battery energy storage systems.
