UAS for Utilities: Application and Implementation

Burns and McDonnell Offices
February 28-March 1, 2017
Orange County, CA

UAS for Utilities: Application and Implementation

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) and greater Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) with ever improving equipment, applications and technologies are proving to be powerful tools for utilities in the areas of maintenance inspections and operations, storm recovery evaluations, construction surveying and land surveying/GIS. Utilities are evaluating a variety of UAS application and finding value across many business units to reduce costs, improve responsiveness, enhance safety and foster environmental compliance.

This conference takes a deep dive on UAS implementation with a focus on practical experiences and lessons learned by utilities as UAS program evaluation implementation becomes more widespread across the utility sector. The potential applications for UAS abound, but one major issue is Data Management. In our Data Management Super Session we'll examine best practices for data gathering, management and how to use that data to inform decisions and operations.

Utility Scale Battery Energy Storage: Regulations, Financing and Economics

Law Offices of Mayer Brown LLP
March 14-15, 2017
Chicago, IL

Utility Scale Battery Energy Storage: Regulations, Financing and Economics

Batteries are rapidly becoming the dominant form of energy storage both at the grid and end-user levels, with utilities, project developers and wholesale markets playing an important role in battery technology's further growth. There are a host of applications for battery storage to include: supplying electricity; supplying ancillary grid services such as reserve capacity, surge capacity, load-balancing, or voltage support; supporting the grid by reducing use of existing infrastructure or deferring the need for new infrastructure; and firming variable generation or time shifting generation to match load.

Utilities, energy market participants and large energy consumers are increasingly seeing how storage can be used strategically for system support and market and financial benefits. Battery prices are declining at a rapid rate as utility scale project deployment is increasing.

The growing deployment of commercial scale battery storage presents both an opportunity and a challenge for utilities, project developers, grid operators and wholesale electricity markets. This conference will discuss how industry leaders are meeting those challenges and capitalizing on opportunities related to this emerging technology.

PHMSA Enforcement Trends and Corrective Action Orders

2 Part Webinar Series
March 7 and March 14, 2017
Online

PHMSA Enforcement Trends and Corrective Action Orders

The Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) and many state agencies continue to apply greater efforts to improve pipeline safety and strengthen the nation’s pipeline infrastructure, particularly in light of recent well-publicized pipeline failures, social activism, and political pressure. The goal, of course, is to motivate more rigorous safety performance by the owners and operators of natural gas pipeline facilities and hazardous liquids pipeline facilities, including crude oil pipelines.

In 2016, Federal and state regulators have displayed their dedication to safety through more aggressive enforcement, larger civil penalties, more public outreach and new rulemaking. This two-part webinar series highlights enforcement issues and trends and areas of agency focus.
