COAL PLANT CLOSURE: A DETAILED LOOK, INDIANAPOLIS, OCTOBER 10-11, 2018
The landscape of coal powered generation has changed forever. There have been regulatory pressures and economic influences for non-critical and aging plants making them no longer economically viable. Generation owners have closed many facilities around the country and continue to do so. For those who have not yet done so, what are the steps involved for an owner in the closure of a plant?
This course will provide owners with those steps in the plant closure process by sharing vital information and lessons that have been acquired by the experts involved. The process is a complicated one consisting of multiple specialties across the generation field. The knowledgeable instructors each brings with them years of experience in their particular field giving the course attendees a comprehensive view and interactive setting for which to engage and take back with them as much applicable information as possible. Some of the topics covered will be: stakeholder management, redevelopment and repurposing, regulatory and environmental factors, environmental assessments, financial considerations, scoping and asset redeployment, and site remediation and grading. Multiple case studies will be highlighted including one from Duke Energy that will help to put all the pieces together for attendees.
