Please join us in our inaugural “Women in Energy” luncheon series on Thursday, February 20, 2020. We will have a one-on-one with Jolene Cicci, the only female lineman in First Energy West Penn Power operating company. The luncheon will focus on how she has broken the gender barriers in a traditionally male role, her 29 years of experience working on the lines, and her participation in the utility's diversity and inclusion program. A casual brown bag lunch will be provided by USEA at 12:00 pm with a discussion with Ms. Cicci at 12:30 pm.

Many small towns in the western United States depend on coal mining and the production of coal fueled electricity for employment and tax revenue to sustain the provision of municipal services, including education. Mayor Nathan Duckett will discuss the importance of the coal economy to Farmington, New Mexico and how Enchant Energy’s proposed Carbon Capture Project at the San Juan Generation Station is a model for how to maintain the local coal economy in an environmentally sustainable manner.

In 2014, the State of Wyoming formed a private/public partnership with utilities to construct and operate a one-of-a-kind carbon research facility at Basin Electric Power Cooperative's Dry Fork Power Station, the Wyoming Integrated Test Center (ITC).  Five years later, researchers are working on novel technologies to improve and commercialize carbon capture and utilization methods.  Wyoming's multi-faceted, technology driven approach is advancing not only efforts in the U.S., but how carbon can be effectively managed across the globe.

Active reservoir management (ARM) has the potential to improve the commercial viability of geologic CO2 storage, and has applications to the geologic disposal of fluids associated with energy production and a broad cross section of other industries. Treatment and handling of brine or “high total dissolved solids” waters associated with energy production can be challenging and not readily or economically accomplished using conventional water treatment techniques. These fluids are typically disposed of through geologic injection.
