The Electric Power Reliability Summit will return to Texas on September 17-19, 2019, hosted by the university’s Center for Electromechanics, and will feature expert speakers and practitioners from across the country.
In May 2018, the Electric Power Reliability Summit (EPRS) brought industry leaders, reliability professionals, and experts from several areas of power system reliability together in Houston, Texas. In 2019, the community will relocate to the AT&T Hotel and Conference Center on the campus of the University of Texas.
The 2019 summit will be hosted by the university’s Center for Electromechanics (CEM), the largest university-based electromechanics research and development facility in the country. The CEM is at the forefront of research for electrical and mechanical engineering, working closely with the Department of Energy on projects to improve the grid.
For forty years the CEM has conducted leading-edge research, working alongside the government and industry on collaborative projects including system modeling for microgrids and hydrogen fuel cell development.
EPRS attendees will have an opportunity to tour the center and learn more about the work they do there firsthand.
Participants in 2019’s EPRS can expect to collaborate with peers and focus on leadership. The goal of the summit is to not only develop a reliability plan that will guide you into the future, but to shape organizational culture. September 14, 2018
