The Future of Electricity
Wednesday, June 23
Keynote by Brian Anderson, director of DOE’s National Energy Technology Laboratory.
9:00 AM – 9:15 AM CT
The rapid expansion of renewable electric generation capacity, and the retirement of coal and uncompetitive nuclear power stations, is creating electricity market volatility – dramatic time-of-day and seasonal swings in electric power rates. The dynamically evolving decentralized power generation market…
10:30 AM – 11:15 AM CT
The future looks promising for green hydrogen. As both a clean fuel and an efficient energy carrier, hydrogen can help solve daunting decarbonization challenges while revitalizing local economies. For example, instead of going unused by electricity grids, surplus renewable energy can be directed toward…
11:30 AM – 12:15 PM CT
Join the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) and Gas Technology Institute (GTI) for a discussion around deployment of low-carbon resources to support global decarbonization, and the research & development needed to accelerate promising technologies. This session will feature remarks from Neva Espinoza…

As we move closer to a carbon-free energy mix, fossil-fueled energy generation must adapt in order to provide reliable energy. We will discuss these strategies from a policy, technology, and business-focused perspective.
11:30 AM – 12:15 PM CT
Black, White, or Surprisingly Green? Transforming Old Coal to New Green Hydrogen at the Intermountain Power Project
Green hydrogen may very well be the holy grail of the green and reliable bulk electric system that is a precondition to electrification and thus GHG reduction. In just the last year, green hydrogen has gone from the fringes to the center of the energy conversation. Case in point, Southern California municipal utilities…
