Carbon Management for Power Plants 2011
Start Date:28 Jun 11 End Date:29 Jun 11
Carbon Management for Power Plants – clarifying federal and state legislation on carbon emissions for power plants and examining cutting edge technologies and techniques to ensure regulatory compliance
With uncertainty around government regulation of power plant carbon emissions it is vital operators understand the most cutting-edge carbon capture and storage strategies, technologies and techniques to ensure they can cost-effectively comply with regulation in the future.
The Carbon Management For Power Plants 2011 is the only event where VPs from the utilities themselves will demystify power plant carbon emission regulation, explain how to apply newly commercialized technologies to cost-effectively comply with this regulation. Key technologies that will be broken down will include CCS, IGCC, underground goal gasification, energy efficiency technologies and retrofitting coal-powered plants.
On day 1 of the event, SVPs, VPs and directors from leading global utility companies will open the event by clarifying current and future regulation both at federal and state level for power plant carbon emissions. Following this they will analyse the global experience in regulating power plant carbon emissions to understand what lessons the USA could learn. They will then analyze partnership opportunities between power plant operators, suppliers, financial institutions and government bodies and the financial risk if they do not comply with regulation. Furthermore, they will examine opportunities in the carbon offset market and evaluate the current status of the carbon market in the US. Finally, best practice strategies for integrating carbon accounting and reporting into core business planning.
On day 2, speakers will examine practical processes for retrofitting existing coal plants and energy efficiency gains in power plants to reduce carbon emissions. The latest advances and most cutting-edge carbon capture and storage technologies from a real world standpoint will be evaluated for commercial application to reduce power plant carbon emissions. Finally, they will evaluate the process of underground coal gasification in combination with carbon capture and storage.
The event will be the year's only opportunity, focused specially on the utility industry being the biggest contributor to carbon emission across all industries where you can hear the from the leading operators themselves on what strategies and processes they are deploying to ensure they meet regulatory compliance in an uncertain regulatory market.
