Our theme is Plant Resiliency - Lessons from Harvey. Hurricane Harvey ripped through the Greater Houston area in late August of 2017, leaving a trail of destruction with an estimated cost of $125 billion, and disrupting operations at oil refineries and chemical plants. Resiliency – stability of operation – is important not only for production and profitability, but also for the energy efficiency of industrial plants.
Our speakers, from industry, utilities, and government, will share their experiences and lessons learned from Harvey, especially as they relate to industrial operations, resiliency, and energy efficiency. There is no charge to attend the Energy Forum, but pre-registration is required.
PDH certificates will be available for the Energy Forum.
The Energy Forum is brought to you by the Texas Industrial Energy Efficiency Program (TIEEP), and the State Energy Efficiency Office (SECO). We would also like to thank STS-AIChE's event sponsors, TLV and Tracerco.
