IEEE Life Members June mtg: CPS Energy talk: Energy Industry Past, Present and Future

June 21 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

The electric utility industry has long been a place of tremendous innovation, starting from the invention of the Edison light bulb and Tesla three-phase AC generator. Since that time, the arc of the story first moved from decentralized smaller generating facilities to “bigger and better” central plants. It appears that the direction has somewhat changed course in the direction of “decentralization”. Meanwhile, electricity has become vastly more market-driven, and the amount of innovation has been moving in all directions! Wind energy, solar energy, hybrid cars, battery only cars, energy storage – how does that interact with gas turbines, combined cycle units, baseload coal and nuclear plants? It’s a big mess! We’re going to talk about all sorts of things!

Speaker(s): Mike Harris,
