EnergyTech 2017 will be held October 31 to November 2, 2017, jointly with the Information Security Summit at the Cleveland I-X Center.
EnergyTech, with the leadership and support of primary sponsors INCOSE and NASA, continues to evolve in scope and content as a major System Engineering forum for advancements in Energy, Power Technologies, Security, and Critical Infrastructure. Last year’s conference offered a great opportunity to meet with key leaders and contributors involved in helping us “light the way to a brighter future”.
For the 2017 EnergyTech Conference and Expo, in collaboration with our partners InfraGard and Information Security Summit (ISS), continues to push the boundaries in Energy Systems, including SmartGrid and MicroGrid evolution, as well as Critical Infrastructure and related security concerns. EnergyTech further expands its focus on energy systems to include NASA and Aero developments in aeronautics power technologies and advancements in modern aircraft systems.

Wednesday, November 1, 2017 – Joint Keynote, EnergyTech Sessions
Thursday, November 2, 2017 – Keynote & EnergyTech Workshops
Thursday Nov. 2 Workshops
EnergyTech Workshops are facilitated sessions intended to apply many of the key issues from the conference sessions and permit interaction with peers while advancing practical knowledge and methods in the desired domain
Workshop 1: Autonomous Systems and Controls
- Deep space manned missions with long communication latency times, and collaborating unmanned air vehicles all require autonomous operation with limited ground control supervision. In addition to autonomous operation, vehicle subsystems will employ digital control as replacement for the traditional analog control, allowing the development of dynamic and adaptive power control methods. When employed on-board the vehicle these technologies will change the power system control hierarchy, allowing for migration of higher level functions into smart components and additional diagnostic and prognostic health management within the higher levels.
- Workshop 1 will assess the changes required in the power control hierarchy, the attributes and design issues associated with off-nominal/non-linear system behaviors, and the analytics and simulations needed to enable software development, verification, and validation.
- Autonomous/Intelligent hierarchical control structure including algorithms and functions
- Complex systems engineering for autonomous/intelligent control
- Simulations and analytics needed for design and validation of autonomous/intelligent control
Workshop 2: Community Resiliency
The ET17 Community Resiliency workshop is supported by InfraGard, focused on achieving Local / Regional resiliency under multiple threat scenarios. It will be facilitated by a team of professionals experienced in contingency planning and operations, especially at City/County levels, as well as individuals responsible for business continuity planning. It is intended to engage leading thinkers and decision makers at a “community level” who have direct interest or responsibility in preparing themselves, their families, local neighborhoods and regional communities with the assets and capabilities to ensure their survival when normal food, water and energy supplies are limited.
Workshop sessions will include:
- Communications: the Foundation for Local Governance and Community Resiliency
- Post Disaster response: Restoring Power, Critical Infrastructure & Life Support Services
- Laying the Groundwork: Creating Plans and Assets for Evolving the Resilient Community
