New Energy Mix

New Energy MixDecentralized power, including flexible gen-sets, CHP and co-generation are evolving to meet the needs of isolated and industrial facilities. These power supply technologies can be found at hospitals, oil drilling sites, data centers and any other site that needs continuous power. On-site power generators used for emergency backup or for primary power are connected to a wide array of sectors that keep the economy going. Gensets also are being installed to provide grid support. The speakers in this Hub will present the latest applications and uses for the versatile gensets available today. 

  • CHP
  • When to go (and not to go) microgrid
  • On-site gas and diesel technologies
  • Energy security and backup
  • Gen-set ratings
  • Hybrid technologies
  • ISO standards
  • Reciprocating engines
  • Load following
  • Responses to regulatory change

Trends in Conventional Power

Trends in Conventional PowerRenewable generation continues to become a larger part of the electricity generation mix. Conventional power, however, remains and will continue to be the biggest contributor to the nation’s energy mix from years to come. Coal-fired plants are retiring, and in many places, natural gas is moving in.  In addition, nuclear power is still a major contributor to the generation mix in the U.S. and other parts of the world and it is carbon free. Learn about the latest trends and technologies that are being implemented to keep this conventional power plants running efficiently and smoothly.
