THIS YEAR’S CONFERENCE DETAILS ARE
POWER-GEN International covers ALL forms of power generation discussed in over 15 TRACKS. Nearly 300
industry experts from all over the world will present new solutions and innovations for the future. Full
conference attendees will also earn 10 Professional Development Hours. Make sure to register as a full
conference attendee to take advantage of all these opportunities.
GAS TURBINE TECHNOLOGIES
These sessions cover a wide range of gas turbine-related topics, including technology advancements, simple
cycle and combined cycle considerations, fuel flexibility, and operation and maintenance issues. In addition,
major gas turbine OEMs will participate in a mega-session showcasing their latest innovations.
FLEXIBLE GENERATION & ONSITE POWER
Fluctuating demand for power and the intermittent nature of renewable generation means power producers are
building large power blocks from either a series of small turbines or reciprocating engines. The need for more
flexible partnering generation is at the root of this movement and has led to significant interest in evaluating
these technologies for the specific needs of power producers.
GAS-FIRED POWER PLANTS
In these sessions, speakers will examine topics related to the chemistry, mechanics, operation, and
construction of gas-fired power generation. Topics include generators, peaking systems, steam turbines,
HRSGs, combined-cycle systems, boilers, and balance-of-plant systems.
The widespread deployment of cost-effective, grid-scale energy storage solutions is looming. The ability to
store large amounts of power will help power producers fill the production gaps created by growing amounts
of intermittent generation. This popular track will cover software solutions, capacity firming, battery life,
frequency regulation, and microgrids.
Investments in emissions reduction can cost more than original plant. As a result, performance and compliance
expectations are increasing. In this track, we’ll be examining efforts to improve compliance, control costs, plan
for the future, enhance performance, and improve technology.
POWER PROJECT FINANCING
Financing experts explore the financing options and strategies that work best in today’s power generation
market. Among other things, panelists will examine liquidity issues, risk and return expectations, new
development possibilities, and the financial and regulatory barriers to overcome in today’s tight financial
Panelists explore ways to improve and optimize the performance and reliability of existing fossil-fired
power generation assets. Topics include: gas and steam turbines, boilers, heat recovery steam generators,
automation/optimization and maintenance.
