District Energy: Think Global, Act Local
Monday, June 24 n 8:00 am - 4:00 pm
This workshop will focus on District Energy in Cities, Meeting
Green Goals, Enabling Smart Cities and using District Energy as
a Platform for Smart City Growth.
In addition to national goals, local governments, cities and
campuses are setting targets to cut carbon emissions and
strengthen local energy infrastructure. District energy,
combined heat and power, and microgrids are proven platforms
to integrate thermal energy and electricity at scale and can play
a vital role in the path toward low–carbon energy infrastructure
that is also reliable, efficient and resilient.
This workshop will feature a panel to showcase global best
practices. The city of Pittsburgh will present initiatives based
on global learnings and a local action plan. In addition to other
decarbonizing strategies, there will be a special session on
geoexchange, an emerging low carbon option.
Microgrids for Enhanced Resiliency
Monday, June 24 n 8:00 am - 4:00 pm
Resiliency has become a key economic requirement for critical
energy infrastructure supporting cities, airports, college and
university campuses, health care, military bases, and industry.
Microgrids have emerged as a scalable solution that further
enhances operational reliability and energy security and can
serve as a foundation for integration of renewables and other
Workshop presenters and participants will bring practical experience in planning, designing and deploying microgrids, discussing
appropriate technology choices and other strategies to meet
business and operational objectives. With a focus on strategies
to reduce investment costs, microgrid experts will share optimization tools and real-time data management in a real-world
setting. Finally, we will discuss how to structure a facility and
emergency response plan to consider extreme weather events
and other unplanned grid outages. The workshop is intended
to enable boundary-crossing conversations and stimulate the
exchange of ideas.
Registrants will be eligible for continuing education units for both workshops.
Approximately 130 exhibit booths will feature IDEA business partners
exhibiting their product offerings and innovations. Under one roof,
attendees can visit with tremendous technical and business resources
in a marketplace of ideas and solutions, focused on the unique needs
of the district energy community.
