SGTech Europe 2019
3-Day Conference, Exhibition and Networking Forum
26-28 March 2019
Amsterdam, The Netherlands

SGTech Europe 2019, the Smart Grid Innovation Forum takes place 26-28 March 2019 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Now in its 3rd edition, this intensive multi-track conference draws together 250+ smart grid technical professionals for a review of 40+ utility implementation and innovation case studies, in the digital substation, next generation SCADA system, utility packet telecoms and cyber-security domains.

Opening with a morning of strategic plenary sessions, power grid digitisation leaders discuss the big trends impacting the evolution of the smart grid. Senior representatives from National Grid, Enedis, Orsted, Stedin, Vattenfall and EDP among others, reveal how they are making technology choices in light of new trends in the areas of IoT, AI, and Blockchain, to become fully data driven organisations.

The programme then breaks into three parallel technical tracks focused on the latest innovations and implementations of digital substations, SCADA systems, and utility telecoms. Day three deep-dives into the cyber-security opportunities and challenges facing smart grid IT and OT colleagues.

Alongside the case-study driven conference programme, there are a number of technology innovation panel discussions, end-user focused round table debates, live demo labs of the latest digitation tools and technologies, a solution zone displaying 20+ suppliers of smart grid solutions, and a networking evening reception open to all participants.

A marcus evans Interview with Kun Zhu
Manager, Resource Retirement at Midcontinent Independent System Operator (MISO)

Speaker at the:

5th Power Plant Decommissioning Operational Excellence Conference
5-7 March 2019
Chicago, IL; United States of America

What is one of the most important things that utilities should do when preparing a decommissioning approval request?
KZ: It is important for the utility to understand the transmission tariff requirements, and be ready for the ‘unexpected’ scenarios: For example, what if study shows that the decommission will cause reliability issues?
How does a System Support Resource – a.k.a Reliability Must Run – impact decision making on retiring power plants?
KZ: A generator deemed as a Reliability Must Run unit by study, will immediately trigger discussions in public forums, due to its cost allocation implications – Who bears the cost of maintaining the operation of the generator; What are the alternatives, and associated costs, to address the reliability issues. Generator owner should be prepared for this becoming a public discussion topic.
What is one way that the Midcontinent Independent System Operator (MISO) is addressing the challenges brought on by the shifting energy production landscape?
KZ: There are many things MISO does relating to the shifting energy production landscape. For example, in the long-term planning realm, MISO is performing a Renewable Integration Impact Assessment (RIIA) study. The goal is to find the integration inflection points of increasing renewable energy, which will help MISO better prepare for the future production landscape.
What is something about your job that we would not know from your Bio or Linkedin Profile?
KZ: I am also heavily involved in Distributed Energy Resource (DER) related tasks.
What are you most looking forward to at the upcoming 5th Power Plant Decommissioning Operational Excellence Conference?
KZ: I am looking forward to meeting other experts in the industry, and learning more about the business decision process from the generator owner perspective.

About the speaker
Mr. Kun Zhu holds a Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from Iowa State University. Kun has18 years’ experience in the Power industry, including 15 years at MISO.

A marcus evans Interview with Jeffrey A. Dunlap
Decommissioning Manager at Exelon Nuclear

Speaker at the:
5th Power Plant Decommissioning Operational Excellence Conference
5-7 March 2019
Chicago, IL; United States of America

What are the most cumbersome challenges you’ve come across when cost estimating decommissioning projects?
JD: The biggest issue with the cost estimation process is striking a balance between accuracy of the estimates and the long term nature of the work. Since most decommissioning projects are far into the future, much of the detailed planning is not yet required, so estimates cannot be calculated to an accuracy level consistent with most projects. As the time frame to perform the decommissioning gets closer, the detailed planning can be incorporated, which creates additional challenges of how to modify the estimate structure to accommodate this detail, without overburdening the analyst.
How could utilities position themselves with environmental liability transfers (ELTs) to curb some of those economic burdens?
JD: The transfer of liabilities can help with this process, as it would allow a company, with more experience in this area to develop the detailed plan of the project, which would feed directly into the cost estimate.
What would be your golden rule when it comes to ELTs?
JD: Do the research necessary to ensure that only technically and financially capable companies are considered for liability transfer.
What is an aspect of your job that we wouldn’t know from your bio?
JD: Many aspects of my job involve long term planning and cost estimation for all of Exelon’s nuclear facilities, not just those nearing decommissioning.
What are you most looking forward to at the 5th Power Plant Decommissioning Operational Excellence?
JD: Learning from real life examples, and bringing back the tools and techniques used in the field to incorporate into our process
