The Blueprint to Decarbonization
Monday, May 23 1:00 - 1:30 p.m.
Room D225, Second Level
More than 110 countries and 200 of the world’s largest companies have pledged to achieve net zero carbon by or before 2050. It is on all of us to reach this critical goal quickly. The power industry must lead the way, enabling the electrification and decarbonization of the broader economy. The question is “How does the U.S. power sector achieve net zero by 2050?” Join us today on the journey to achieve decarbonization. Together, we can create a Change in Power.

Starting in the current decade and going into the future, Hydrogen will play an increasingly important role in decarbonizing the global power generation sector. Many questions remain unanswered with regards to how exactly Hydrogen can be integrated into existing energy flow networks and what impacts will this have on market dynamics. An accurate prediction of the evolution of Hydrogen eco-systems requires a robust quantitative market modeling approach. We invite you to speak with us and take a deep dive into the background of our modeling efforts. You can ask us about modeling methodologies, limitations, and real-world impacts of model results. We look forward to having an open dialogue and joining you in your decarbonization journey.

The Increasing Importance of Aero-Derivative On-Demand Power
Monday, May 23 4:30 - 5:00 p.m.
#5925, Exhibit Floor
Around the world, power producers are under pressure to deliver reliable, affordable, decarbonized electricity 24/365. On-demand power based on aero-derivative technology helps producers meet these competing goals. Rapidly expanding renewable energy sources provide zero-carbon generation, but wind and sun vary the output. Renewable technologies are also more susceptible to damage from severe weather events such as hurricanes and snow/ice storms that can disrupt existing infrastructure. The changing generation mix from larger central plants to more distributed and intermittent power sources is making the grid less resilient. Due to the rapid growth in demand for electricity, power providers often can’t build out their energy infrastructure assets (generation, distribution, transmission, fuels) quickly enough to serve expanding populations and industries. This demand growth is further accelerated by the electrification of the transportation and industrial sectors. Falling capacity margins plus increasing levels of power from intermittent sources, and cybersecurity threats, make it increasingly difficult to maintain grid reliability and power quality. As these issues become more pressing, the need is increasing for on-demand energy systems. We will detail several areas where aero-derivative on-demand power technology is addressing today’s speed imperative.

Hydrogen: A Path to Resource Adequacy and Net Zero Carbon
Tuesday, May 24 10:00 - 10:30 am
Room D226, Second Level
The effort to decarbonize our power grid has been underway for several years as evidenced by the massive deployment of wind and solar resources. As we add more intermittent renewable resources to the grid and reduce our dependency on fossil fuels, we increase the need for energy storage of all durations. This presentation will focus on the reasons “hydrogen” is not just a buzzword in the energy industry and how Mitsubishi Power is creating hydrogen infrastructure in the U.S.
Optimizing Plant Operation & Maintenance Using Remote Presence Technology - Going Beyond Monitoring
Wednesday, May 25 9:30 - 10:00 a.m.
Room D227, Second Level
Fleet-level monitoring, especially for major critical assets like gas turbines, is well established and it has proven to improve power plant reliability and performance. But technologies are becoming available that go far beyond just monitoring, such as advanced analytics, interactive software, and the ability to capture and broadly apply SME (Subject Matter Expert) expertise. In this age of asset digitalization, when on-site SME experience is becoming increasingly difficult to sustain, power plants of the future will be more autonomous and benefit from remote support. As the data streams increase, so do the capabilities, and it is imperative to take a total plant approach. Through targeting critical assets across the entire power plant and comparing their data outputs against advanced analytic models, outlier data points initiate the generation of an automated notification highlighting any potential operational risks. These notifications pinpoint the specific location of any equipment of concern, gauge its overall health and life consumption, and provide a recommended course of action to mitigate. This presentation is based on case studies highlighting the results from those pilot plants.
