 +**At our general meeting on Tuesday, December 10 we had: **
 +
 +**Speaker: Franco Albi**
 +
 +Franco is the Senior Manager of Strategy Integration at Portland General Electric. His team is responsible for corporate strategy and integrated resource planning, focusing on building stakeholder trust and working with customers to provide the best outcomes for delivering clean energy safely, reliably, and affordably. Mr. Albi has been working in the energy industry for over 20 years leading development and implementation of sustainable resources.
 +
 +Prior to establishing the Strategy Integration group, Mr. Albi lead various projects in power supply and power delivery including development,​ construction,​ and commissioning of the Tucannon River Wind Farm, Boardman Air Quality Controls, and T&D infrastructure improvements. ​
 +
 +Prior to joining PGE, Mr. Albi worked with PacifiCorp and the Bonneville Power Administration. ​ His educational background includes an MBA and Master’s in Civil Engineering and he is a registered Professional Engineer in Oregon and California.

 +**Presentation:​ PGE Integrated Resource Plan** ​ [[Slides For Franco Albi | Slides For Franco Albi]]
 +
 +An integrated resource plan is a utility plan for meeting forecasted annual peak and energy demand, plus some established reserve margin, through a combination of supply-side and demand-side resources over a specified future period. ​ On July 19, 2019, Portland General Electric filed a 2019 integrated resource plan with the Oregon Public Utility Commission.
 +
 +Portland General Electric’s vision for a clean energy future includes measures to **Decarbonize** the electricity provided to customers, **Electrify** the energy economy, and **Partner** with customers to integrate their energy technology choices. Franco will share an overview of PGE’s strategy and some of the key actions they are taking, from bringing more renewables online to modernizing the platform to manage clean energy to enabling transportation electrification to making sure all customers thrive in the clean energy future. ​

 +**At our general meeting on Tuesday, November 12, we heard a presentation from Christopher Dymond, speaking on “U. S. Energy Trends”.** ​
 +
 + 
 +
 +**Speaker: Christopher Dymond **
 + 
 +
 +Christopher is a Sr Product Manager, working for the Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance.
 +
 +He holds a Master’s degree in building systems engineering from the University of Colorado, and an undergraduate degree in Engineering Physics from Oregon State University. ​ He has over 25 years’ experience in energy efficiency of commercial buildings, residential technologies,​ policy development and solar power. Prior to joining NEEA he worked 4 years at EDF Renewable Energy as manager of emerging technologies where he did system design and due-diligence evaluation for both utility and commercial scale solar power projects, and 12 years at the Oregon Department of Energy an energy analyst on efficiency and renewable energy systems.

 +
 +**Presentation:​ NEEA and Energy Efficiency** ​ {{ :​pdf:​engineers_for_sustainable_future_neema_2019.pdf | NEEA and Energy Efficiency Slides}}
 +
 + 
 +
 +NEEA is tasked with securing energy efficiency resources through actions that influence the market by working with manufactures,​ federal standards, distribution and other non-customer facing actions. ​ These have resulted in resources considerably cheaper than building new power plants for the region. ​ Christopher will present some context on about the regional resources mix and role of efficiency followed by a few examples of programs NEEA has been and is currently working on to effect change in the market toward greater energy efficiency. This will include current NEEA work on very high-efficiency dedicated outdoor air systems for commercial buildings and new opportunities in residential heating and cooling systems. ​

 +**At our general meeting on Tuesday, October 8,** we heard a presentation from Jack Kerfoot, speaking on “U. S. Energy Trends”. ​
 +
 +**Speaker: Jack Kerfoot**
 +Slides: ​ {{ :​actions_previous:​us_energy_ev_trends.pdf |}}
 + 
 +
 +Jack Kerfoot is scientist, energy expert and author of the book **“FUELING AMERICA, An Insider’s Journey.”** He has spent over forty years in the energy industry working with scientists, bureaucrats,​ ministers, sheikhs and potentates on energy projects around the world. Jack is the principal of JL Kerfoot Energy Services and has been on numerous national radio and television talk shows to discuss energy issues in America and around the world. He blogs at “Our Energy Conundrum” at http://​www.jackkerfoot.
 +
 +Presentation:​ U.S. Energy Trends
 +
 +The presentation discusses the driving forces and trends for each of the major energy sources (oil & gas, coal, nuclear & renewable energy). It provides multiple reasons (climate change, air quality, economics, rapidly declining supplies of all fossil fuels) for America to rapidly move to renewable energy. ​
 +
 +The presentation shows that wind, solar & hydro are now cheaper than any form of fossil fuel and that it is imperative we look to increase the support for renewable energy, using multiple, irrefutable facts. ​
 +
 +Transportation is now the largest source of greenhouse gases in America. The last few slides show that a transportation revolution is taking place in America and around the world. In Jack’s opinion, 2025 will be the tipping point when more people in America will buy new EVs than internal combustion engines.

 +
 +**On Tuesday, September 10**, ESF will host a presentation on wave energy capture. ​ Wave energy capture is an especially intriguing source for Oregonians as our state has significant potential for its development.  ​
 +
 +**Speaker: ​ Dr. Burke Hales**
 +
 +Dr. Hales is the chief scientist for the wave energy test site that is being developed about seven miles west of Newport on the Oregon coast. ​ Dr Hales is a professor in Oregon State'​s College of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences. ​
 +
 + 
 +
 +**Presentation: ​ Wave Energy Capture**
 + 
 +The Wave Energy Capture project is known as PacWave. It will provide grid connected wave energy testing in an open ocean environment. ​ Oregon State has received a 35 million dollar grant from the U.S. Department of Energy to develop and build out the site.
 +
 +It has been estimated that, globally, the marine energy market could reach nearly $700 billion by 2050.  The World Energy Council estimates that 10 percent of worldwide electricity demand could be met by harvesting ocean energy.  ​
 +
 + 
 +
 +You won't want to miss Dr Hales' presentation on this transformational project occurring right within our own state.
