The 14th annual 3-day International Colloquium on Environmentally Preferred Advanced Power Generation (ICEPAG) focusing on clean energy generation and utilization was hosted by the Advanced Power and Energy Program (APEP) in April. The event was specifically designed to facilitate a shared understanding of advanced energy technologies, promote strategic alliances between the world's energy communities, and inspire students to embrace the challenges and opportunities associated with advanced power generation and environmental quality.

Speakers representing leaders in the area of clean power generation and utilization included: the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), the U.S Trade and Development Agency, Southern California Gas Company (SoCalGas) Southern California Edison (SCE), ETAP, MelRok, FuelCell Energy, Polytechnic University of Torino, Inha University, and the University of California, Irvine (UCI). On day three, APEP provided Colloquium attendees a tour of the University of California, Irvine's Tri-Generation demonstration project at the Orange County Sanitation District (OCSD). This unique plant produces electricity, high quality heat, and hydrogen fuel for Fuel Cell vehicles from OCSD digester gas
