DIGITAL SOLUTIONS & CYBERSECURITY
While efforts to make more sense of the information collected from power generation equipment can improve
a plant’s bottom line, they also increase a plant’s vulnerability to a cyberattack. In this track, experts will
discuss the technologies behind this digital revolution and the efforts to protect the world’s power plants from
the growing number of cyberattacks.
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 flow 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, flue gas treatment, oxy-combustion, and
There are more than 500 GWs of wind power installed capacity across the world today and this number is
expected to grow by at least 10 percent each year. Sessions in this track explore new and innovative turbine
technology from the nacelle to the foundation, project development, O&M strategies, and markets for both
onshore and offshore wind.
The fastest growing new energy source year after year is solar power. From behemoth utility-scale installations to
smaller behind-the-meter distributed generation, sessions in this track provide a look into photovoltaic technology
including modules, inverters, balance of systems, trackers, and the smart software that makes it all work.
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.
EMERGING INTERNATIONAL MARKETS
Emerging markets must invest in new generation to keep up with their economic growth. In many
cases, these regions are connecting citizens to the grid for the first time. Understanding the
environmental, regulatory, technological and geographical challenges in these countries is crucial to
executing a successful power project. Our panelists offer you advice in how to succeed in these emerging
I got a lot of information on where the current status
is with energy storage… how the market is distributed
over various technologies… information that I just
wasn’t aware of before.
Energy Systems Group
Most valuable part has been the conference sessions…
Knowledgeable panelist that were able to give me a
solid background of the state of the market and get me
excited about some new projects.
