Lecturer Mr. Kevin Kampschroer: New Barriers that Face Building Energy Conservation and Consumption
To invest in energy efficiency is often described as being a “win-win”: by reducing the amount of energy used, efficiency measures can reduce energy consumption (and, consequently, impacts of energy use) and save customers money. Examine renewable energy and energy-efficient technologies used in building applications and assessing their emissions reduction potential.
· Identify advanced materials and devices that are used in renewable energy systems
· Analyze and predict trends in the most likely applications
· Pinpoint new materials and devices that are likely to be introduced into renewable energy systems in the next five years and their expected market impacts
Lecturer Mr. Andrew Knox, 24/7 Carbon-Free Electricity -
Learn from The Pentagon's Office of the U.S. Secretary of Defense, as its Special Assistant Chief Sustainability Officer details U.S. Department of Defense efforts to go to market with procurement action for 24/7 Carbon Free Electricity.
Lecturer Mr. Stephen Ambrose
Climate Change in Tomorrow’s World
· Will science and technology innovation save the planet? Some tools in our toolbox.
· What equity means in terms of climate resilience. Can solutions be applied fairly?
· Is adaptation the only way to reduce climate risk in the future? The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change says the “window for action” is closing fast.
Lecturer Reginald Swift Ph.D.
Health and the Environment
As the planet warms, oceans expand and the sea level rises, floods and droughts become more frequent and intense, and heat waves and hurricanes become more severe. The most vulnerable people—children, the elderly, the poor, and those with underlying health conditions—are at increased risk for health effects from climate change. - Learn from scientists on the key areas of scientific advancements, research and funding to counter the effects on impact of climate change on human health.
Lecturer Mr. Gary Lawrence
Make Certain to Attain Sustainable Solutions
Choosing to integrate better sustainability, resiliency, and adaptation ( SRA) in infrastructure planning is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint. This session will explore why it is also important not to just seek an “either/or” solution, especially now when the current need is so severe it needs to be “all/and.”
Lecturer The Honorable William Anderson
- Discuss particular challenges of various transportation modalities that precludes a "one size fits all" solution for the segment - Gain insights into clean power pathways by transportation subsector that maximize effectiveness and environmental sustainability while minimizing unintended consequences
Lecturer Mr. Aziz Ahmad
Maximizing Cyber Security
The importance of securing the grid is as vital as ever, as digital technology have been embedded directly and indirectly into physical attributes. This session will cover the trends and challenges that are shaping the security needs of the power grid, and prevention of cascading event that lead to blackouts, public health, and safety issues as well as economic impact. The focus will be on lessons learned from previous events, framework understandings, assess and implement measures for securing the power grid, while providing real time interactive support for end consumers. We will touch on C2M2, cyber security capability maturity model, smart grid trends, and public notification mechanisms.
