AMO’s Combined Heat and Power (CHP) team is hosting a half-day workshop in conjunction with the Texas Energy Summit on how CHP can enhance the resilience of Texas critical infrastructure on Monday, September 24, 2018. There is also an opportunity to tour the new CHP plant at NASA – Johnson Space Center after the workshop.

Topics to be Discussed:

  • How can CHP and microgrids support critical infrastructure facilities (e.g., hospitals and nursing care facilities) in safeguarding their energy systems for natural disasters?
  • What are some examples of successful programs and policies for CHP and microgrid development that have been implemented at the state level following natural disasters?
  • How have utilities been incorporating CHP and microgrids to ensure local energy grid resilience?
  • What public or private resources are available to help finance investments in CHP and related energy resiliency improvements at critical infrastructure facilities?

What to Expect:

This workshop will offer both presentations and panel discussions by experts from the public and private sector on strategies for using CHP and microgrids at critical infrastructure facilities. Speakers with experience in operating CHP with microgrids and programs that support critical infrastructure energy resilience will share lessons learned and best practices.

Tarla Toomer, AMO technology manager, will present the CHP Deployment Program and Resilience Accelerator.
