    Program Overview:

    Innovative possibilities arise because of the possible adaptation of varying technology configurations in response to the diminution in the number of fully operating coal-fired power plants responsible for a significant portion of carbon emissions. The key variables in the complex equation include:

    1. the extent to which renewables expand their role in the resource generation mix;
    2. the impacts on the existing transmission grid and local distribution systems of generation mix change;
    3. the feasibility of energy storage at different points in the grid; 
    4. the extent to which coal-fired resources can continue as part of the resource mix, such as for ancillary services and with technologies in place to reduce emissions and as part of overall plans to promote clean efficient power generation management.

    This program is to designed to help lawyers understand how the treatment of these variables can be reflected in the SIP regulations.

    Kim Johnson, the moderator, will outline how a SIP for a state with predominately coal fired generation could meet or exceed CPP goals on a relatively painless transition from baseload coal by using existing coal generation and storage to facilitate and expand the use of renewables in the generation resource mix and enhance grid reliability.

    Bill Holmes will discuss alternatives for the optimal use of storage in grid operations, its feasibility at different points on the grid and its ability to mitigate impacts on transmission and distribution systems of generation mix change.

    Sharon Sjostrom will discuss the extent to which coal-fired resources can continue as part of the resource mix by discussing patterns of coal plant usage and emissions, technologies in place to reduce emissions and the ability for coal units to provide grid support and ancillary services and as part of an overall plan to promote clean, efficient power generation management.

    Bill Holmes is a partner at K&L Gates LLP, a global law firm. Bill advises corporate buyers, developers and utilities in the negotiation of power purchase agreements (PPAs), virtual power purchase agreements (VPPAs), energy project development agreements, and other agreements for the development, acquisition or sale of energy projects, including solar energy, wind energy, hydroelectric energy and energy storage.  Bill is a frequent speaker and moderator at renewable energy and energy storage conferences.  He is listed in Best Lawyers in America® in Energy Law, 2007-2016 and has also served as an Adjunct Professor of Renewable Energy Law at the University of Oregon.

    Presenter: Sharon Sjostrom

    Sharon Sjostrom is the Chief Product Officer of Advanced Emissions Solutions, Inc., a leader in clean coal technology and the associated specialty chemicals, serving the coal-fueled power plant industry. She is Responsible for developing and implementing ADA’s strategic technology development plans. She has over 20 years of experience in managing the development of technologies to control particulate and gaseous emissions from coal fired power plants. An internationally recognized expert in mercury control, Sharon was a key technical contributor to commercialization of mercury continuous emissions monitors and has published over 50 technical papers and is an inventor on 12 patents. Sharon holds a BS and MS, Mechanical Engineering, MBA, and is a Licensed Professional Engineer (P.E.).

    Moderator: Kim Johnson

    Kim Johnson is President and Chief Executive Officer of eBarton LLC, a company that works to support the development and commercialization of clean and renewable energy and fuels companies. Its focus areas include energy storage, waste to energy, natural gas, solar, hydroelectric, biomass, and fuels. Key positions currently held as an independent contractor include Chief Commercial Officer of MADA Power LLC, an energy storage company and Managing Director GEN2, LLC, a waste to energy company. MADA is trying to facilitate a generational leap from a fossil to a largely renewable resource based grid through the pairing of renewables with its energy processing and storage technology backed up by existing coal fired generation. Gen2 is working with a leading South African technology provider on pyrolysis projects that convert coal and coal fines to electricity and fuels. She is the 2016 Vice Chair Programs of the ABA SEER Energy, Infrastructure, Siting and Reliability Committee.
