THE DIGITAL POWER PLANT
A typical power plant is equipped with more than 10,000 sensors. They measure and communicate movement, vibration,
temperature, humidity and chemical changes in the air and water. But only a fraction of that data is analyzed and quantifed for
the day-to-day operation and maintenance of a power plant. Learn about the Industrial Internet of Things and the opportunities
to exploit that data and make sense of the information to trim costs, increase sales and boost effciency during the sessions of
this conference track.
Material handling techniques are changing rapidly to accommodate modern environmental standards for coal ash and
wastewater disposal. Among other things, our experts will discuss coal ash regulation, dewatering systems, pond closures,
conveyor technology, groundwater monitoring, dry and wet bottom ash removal, dust suppression and fow behavior.
CLEAN COAL TECHNOLOGIES
There are many evolving clean coal technologies under development by researchers and power producers across the globe.
These sessions offer attendees the latest information on clean coal technology and development, including carbon capture,
coal combustion, boiler management, fue gas treatment, oxy-combustion, and gasifcation.
UTILITY-SCALE RENEWABLE POWER
Utility-scale renewable power projects are typically 10 megawatts or larger. These sessions examine the evolution and
innovation in large-scale renewables. Issues include cost, performance, integration, policy, geography, O&M, new project
development, and monitoring.
DISTRIBUTED RENEWABLE POWER
More homes and businesses are producing their own power. Distributed renewable power systems come in many forms,
including geothermal systems, solar panels, micro wind turbines, and small hydropower systems. In this track, our panelists will
discuss new innovations, policy and regulation, integration, and permitting standards.
Nuclear power is a great option for meeting the world’s clean energy goals. In fact, the industry is expected to expand each
year through 2020. Among other things, these sessions will examine the economics of nuclear power, O&M strategies,
monitoring, licensing, project development, and the development of small modular reactors.
BUSINESS TRENDS & REGULATORY ISSUES
Power professionals examine regulatory changes and economic forces impacting the global power generation market. In
particular, panelists will discuss how technology, project development, system reliability, and asset management strategies are
evolving to adapt to these market drivers.
