 Jan 15 2015
The 36th annual Energy Generation Conference (EGC) fills the Bismarck Event Center Jan. 27-29 with an expanded exhibitor showcase and training for more than 2,000 energy workers from across the U.S. and Canada.

One of the premier energy industry conferences in North America, the EGC offers professional development in all areas of energy production from engineering and environment to safety and support services.

Coordinated by Bismarck State College Continuing Education, Training and Innovation, the conference begins with pre-conference training all day Tuesday, Jan. 27, at the Exhibit Hall and on the BSC campus. The Exhibitor Showcase, the only event open to the public, runs 4:30 to 6 p.m. and features more than 300 vendors.

Concurrent information sessions are scheduled Jan. 28-29 in key areas such as engineering, electrical, environmental, instrumentation, mechanical, operations, safety, support services and professional development.

Topics to be addressed include carbon management options for coal-fired plants and reducing CO² intensity in power plants. Several sessions address current and proposed Environmental Protection Agency regulations on stack emissions, carbon reduction and regional power grid transmissions. Other sessions address new generation resources using wind and natural gas, and the unique design of the Spiritwood Station, North Dakota's newest coal-fired facility.

Keynote speaker Gen. Russel Honoré, a global preparedness authority and commander of Joint Force Katrina, speaks from 8 to 9:30 a.m. Jan. 28 and Jan. 29 on "The New Normal: Leadership and Preparedness in the 21st Century."
