The 20th Annual ELECTRIC POWER Conference Management and Program Committee have issued an industry-wide call for participation. The conference covers all aspects of power generation from both business and technical perspectives, and here is this year’s theme:
Gas Is Dominant. You Got a Problem with That?
Should we worry about the unintended consequences of the rise of gas?
It’s clear that the abundance of natural gas due to hydraulic fracturing has resulted in abundant supplies and low prices. The fuel is less carbon intense than other fossil fuels, and generating technology meets many market demands for flexible power that can handle intermittent renewable resources. But other forms of baseload generation are feeling the pinch with zero-emission nuclear power plants at risk of closure along with coal plants. As a result, every part of the power generation value chain and fuel type—coal, nuclear and even renewables—are impacted: from O&M to plant upgrades, environmental compliance strategies to efficiency improvements, workforce development and new talent deployment. As the power generation sector’s gathering place for 20 years, ELECTRIC POWER is developing a program that considers natural gas from all sides and also shines a light on the unintended consequences of a more gas-focused grid for other forms of power.
The ELECTRIC POWER program is developed by an industry-based committee of more than 75 power industry executives, managers, and engineers. All abstracts are reviewed for content and relevance by the committee and are selected by consensus. All offers considered sales pitches will be rejected.
Things to keep in mind:
The Abstract Submission Due Date is July 14, 2017. You will receive email confirmation when your submission has been received. Thank you for your interest in participating at ELECTRIC POWER 2018 !
