POWERGEN+ returns this week with sessions featuring experts discussing the latest and greatest in state regulation and renewable policies, community solar, hydrogen adoption and energy storage options.
The monthly virtual series, enacted during this era of social distancing due to COVID-19, offers the same level of power sector industry content which normally happens at the live event. POWERGEN+ is free to register and sessions are available both live this week and archived for one year.
Registrants can see individual sessions or attend all of them, if they want. Go here to choose.
POWERGEN International is still scheduled for March 30-April 1 in Orlando.
In the meantime, parent company Clarion Energy is working on building virtual sessions with learned veterans in the utility, OEM, service and alternative energy fields. The sessions happening Wednesday and Thursday are focused on the clean energy side of the power generation equation.
On the first day, a group of state and national regulatory leaders will detail how their jurisdictions handle renewable energies and integration as an economic development issue. Later in the day, high-level contributors from National Grid, U.S. Light Energy and Standard Solar will show the path they took to developing major community solar projects in New York.
On Thursday, sponsor Nel Hydrogen will underline key factors in why stored and deployable H2 can help both grid resiliency and zero-carbon goals. The second session panel that day, moderated by Energy Cast host Jay Dauenhauer, will include Rye Development, GE and National Grid Renewables (formerly Geronimo Energy) and give the overview and challenges of various energy storage resources.
Both days will be kicked off by welcome messages from Clarion Energy leaders and keynote addressed from renewable and hydrogen sector leaders. The Wednesday keynote speaker will be Robert Jackson, director for solar PV projects for renewables developer Ameresco, while Thursday morning’s keynote will be from David Bow with Nel Hydrogen.
