POWER-GEN International: ABS Group to Present on Best Practices, Compliance
NEWS ADVISORY--Thomas Adams, ABS Group Vice President of Power Business Development, will present the technical paper "Best Practices for Combined Heat and Power (CHP) Development" at 9:30 am on Wednesday, Dec. 14, at the 2016 POWER-GEN International conference. The event will be held Dec. 13-15 in Orlando, Florida.
"CHP projects offer many benefits to a wide array of energy users, and there's a long history of successful adoption of CHP in diverse industries," Adams explains. "For users considering the development and installation of a CHP project for the first time who may not be fully equipped to handle all of the development tasks and challenges, there are several steps we recommend for each stage of development to help mitigate the risks and maximize project success. Our presentation will provide an overview of these best practices based on ABS Group's decades of practical experience working in the energy, nuclear, renewable and conventional power sectors."
In addition, Robert Parker, ABS Group senior security consultant, will present a technical session addressing safety, risk and compliance management in his presentation "Beyond NERC Compliance: Broader Implications for Safety and Cyber Security in the Power Sector," which is scheduled for Wednesday, Dec. 14, at 1:30 pm.
