Balancing Resiliency, Sustainability and Affordability: Can we Achieve it and Still Keep the Lights On?
Balancing Resiliency, Sustainability and Affordability: Can we Achieve it and Still Keep the Lights On?

The industry is undergoing a fundamental change faced with unpredictable climate change and move towards electrification, non-traditional energy sources and providers. But the investments in infrastructure have failed to keep pace leading to catastrophic results in some cases. Electricity has also gone from a novelty to a necessity in the last 100+ years, and we’ve seen a varied response, often dependent on geography, socioeconomics, and the partnerships and vision of individual utilities to address the challenge of re-imaging the very nature of the grid. Utilities must establish a comprehensive and strategic vision to re-building the grid with resiliency, sustainably and with affordability in mind. Integrating modern technologies within existing infrastructure, testing them in real time while maintaining current services. These organizations, historically slow moving and risk adverse must learn to turn (and innovate) fast. At the same time, some utilities are well ahead of the curve, topping the leader board in supporting sustainable energy. However, these frontrunners also serve as our frontline, dealing with the pain of first-time issues and new challenges unique to early adopters. Join us for an insightful panel discussion that will explore the challenges and some real-world examples of how utilities, state and local governments are rising to meet these challenges head on.The industry is undergoing a fundamental change faced with unpredictable climate change and move towards electrification, non-traditional energy sources and providers.

Smart City, a Utility Microgrid Demonstration Project
The Smart City Demonstration project was developed to demonstrate how a utility could use 3rd party/customer- and utility-owned DERs to operate a front-of-the-meter microgrid to enhance resiliency while maintaining safety and reliability. The project leverages distributed control architecture and improved planning processes that include increased understanding of customer technology adoption and increased integration with city planning and DER permitting processes. This presentation will review the learnings from the project including, microgrid site selection, technical design, cost-benefit analysis, and lab/field demonstration.

Leadership Summit
Power Challenges Bigger than Texas: Addressing Resource Adequacy, Resiliency and Security in an Uncertain World with Rick Perry, Massoud Amin & Julia Matevosyan
Power Challenges Bigger than Texas: Addressing Resource Adequacy, Resiliency and Security in an Uncertain World with Rick Perry, Massoud Amin & Julia Matevosyan
The future of energy in Texas and the US is one of carbon-free promise, but numerous challenges face us in designing and operating an electrical system to meet the growing demand for power while ensuring resiliency, reliability, and security. How do we manage these challenges within a changing regulatory regime and with an evolving threat environment? Deepa Poduval, Vice President & Global Advisory Leader at Black & Veatch kicks off the Leadership Summit with a short introduction. Following his remarks will be a conversation with former US Secretary of Energy and former Governor of Texas, Rick Perry, Massoud Amin, professor of Electrical Engineering at the University of Minnesota, and Julia Matevosyan, Chief Engineer at ESIG Energy. This give-and-take discussion will offer a candid assessment of the policy, technology, and cybersecurity issues that are crucial to the bulk power system’s future.

COVID 19 and Winter Storm Uri: Lessons Learned in Residential Energy Resilience in the Age of Home Electrification
Pecan Street collects circuit-level electricity use data at more than a thousand homes in four states at one-second intervals, providing insight into how the pandemic changed the way people use energy at home. In this session we will discuss: The significant shifts in residential energy consumption were observed during the COVID 19 pandemic. Home energy performance during the harsh weather and grid outages of winter storm Uri. The impending full electrification of homes in the form of heat pumps for space and water heating, electric vehicles, electric cooktops, and their impact on shifting consumption baselines and system shocks.
