14th annual

Venue: Radisson Hotel Newport Beach, 4545 MacArthur Boulevard, Newport Beach California 92660

ICEPAG (the International Colloquium on Environmentally Preferred Advanced Power Generation) is a three-day international colloquium focused on clean energy systems and covering the topics of: Sustainable Power Generation, Energy Utilization, and Grid Ramifications

What makes this a must-attend event?

  • Comprehensive program: The conference addresses the gamut of clean energy generation, modernization of the grid system, and clean transportation to capture an integrated view of clean energy systems more effectively than any other forum.
  • Objective and insightful: A diverse range of presentations and attendees participate which assures non-biased content and insight on the latest, cutting edge information regarding clean energy technologies and markets
  • Key stakeholder engagement: Attendees are made up of influential figures from industry, academia, and government with a stake in clean energy.
  • Robust dialog: Attendees with a wide range of backgrounds and disciplines share their perspective on clean energy technologies and lessons learned in an effective and well-rounded set of discussions.
  • International constituency: for the past 13 years ICEPAG has been a premier global forum in which clean energy leaders from around the world share and discuss their perspectives
  • Networking opportunities: Attendees will have opportunities to network during an evening reception at the Newport Beach Environmental Nature Center, as well as during several lunches and networking breaks throughout the conference.

Who should attend?

The Global Summit is intended for professionals or students from industry, government or academia who are seeking to stay at the cutting edge of the clean energy discussion. This includes stakeholders involved in the design, manufacture or install electric power generators whether on a small distributed scale, or at a central scale. The content will also be relevant to companies involved in consulting, planning, and development of clean energy utilization systems related to smart grid, microgrid, or clean transportation including hydrogen fuel cell or plug-in electric vehicles and how they are fueled. Finally, the networking and information sharing will be of key interest to regulators, public policy professionals, researchers, technology developers, system integrators, investors, urban planners, and others who wish to understand the potential and challenges currently associated with the generation or utilization of clean energy.

ICEPAG features a plenary session followed by sessions in two tracks. Presentations address the technological, environmental, regulatory and market aspects of the featured technologies, including (1) emerging international activity, (2) development of international markets, and (3) the potential for collaboration among participating countries.

Track Sessions

Track 1:Clean Generation
This track addresses the existing and emerging technologies for power generation at the distributed generation (DG) and central plant (CP) scales.

Session 1-1

DG: Fuel Cell Systems
This session addresses the emerging technologies and commercialization of large stationary fuel cells with emphasis on both small units (proton exchange membrane and solid oxide) and large units (phosphoric acid, molten carbonate, and solid oxide).

Session 1-2

DG: Gas Turbine Systems
This session addresses the emerging technologies and commercialization of gas turbines with emphasis on technologies and systems directed to the distributed generation market including microturbine generators (less than 500 kilowatts) and megawatt class engines (less than or equal to 50 megawatts).

Session 1-3

DG: Applications and Systems Integration
This session addresses the emerging technologies and commercialization associated with combined cooling, heating and power (CCHP) including the engineering for integration into the built environment, controls, and successful operating and economic business models.

Session 1-4

CP: Natural Gas, Coal, Biomass--Brayton, Rankine & Fuel Cell Cycles
This session addresses the advanced systems associated with combined and fuel cell cycles including component technology, systems analyses, and configurations that address the stretch goals of zero emission of criteria pollutants, isolation of CO2 for sequestration, and the co-production of a transportation fuel.

Track 2:Clean Utilization
This track addresses the existing and emerging technologies for (1) energy conversion and utilization for both stationary and mobile applications, (2) buffering the effects of intermittent renewable resources, and (3) the smart grid paradigm.

Session 2-1

Smart Energy, Power: Electric Vehicle Fueling
This session addresses the emerging market of hydrogen and electricity as transportation fuels for fuel cell electric and battery electric vehicles, the impact on the grid in terms of resource allocation and emissions, and the environment (both greenhouse gases and air quality) associated with electric drive-train scenarios.

Session 2-2

Smart Energy, Power: Utility Grid Technologies
This session addresses (1) the challenges facing electric utilities and independent system operators in managing the intermittencies associated with renewable power generation resources, and (2) the various strategies to mitigate intermittency issues at the utility grid scale: energy storage, advanced power electronics, demand response, etc.

Session 2-3

Smart Energy, Power: Microgrid Technologies
This session addresses emerging microgrid technologies and associated strategies including energy storage , controls and management, demonstration projects, related initiatives such as the design strategy for renewable-based communities, and the nexus of energy, water, air quality, and agriculture.
Session 2-4

Smart Energy, Power:Nanogrid Technologies
This session addresses the emerging nanogrid (building level) technologies associated with advanced building design and operations, small scale energy storage, and DG integration especially in the context of the smart future.
