Originally Presented: July 16, 2015 Course Length: 1.5 Hours Course Credit Hours: 1.5 PDHs Moderator: Robert Bradford, Director of Technical Consulting, Burns & McDonnell Speakers: Fred Terry, Federal Cybersecurity Practice Lead, Burns & McDonnell Ross Roley, SPIDERS Operational Manager, US Pacific Command Course Overview: SPIDERS, not the creepy, crawling, eight-legged insects we fear, but Smart Power Infrastructure Demonstration for Energy Reliability and Security (SPIDERS), is the acronym connecting clean energy and cyber security. SPIDERS is a Department of Defense (DoD) and the Department of Energy (DoE) partnership project designed to keep critical military facilities in operation in the event of grid outages while making use of clean, locally sourced energy. A major challenge of the project is averting military bases away from over-reliance on diesel-powered backup generators and re-directing them toward hybrid systems integrating solar power, hydrogen fuel cells and local energy sources. Learn which cyber security threats affect the grid, supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) and Industrial Control Systems during the July 16th webinar, Cyber security of the SPIDERS Microgrid Network & How It Applies to the Industry at Large, and earn 1.5 PDHs. This webinar explores an overview of cyber security threats, the SPIDERS microgrid, Red Team exercises against the microgrid network. SCADA managers in the Energy Transmission & Distribution sectors, individuals involved in Industrial Control System networks, as well as DoD personnel and contractors responsible for DoD security, will be learning directly from industry experts, Fred Terry, Federal Cyber Security Practice Lead at Burns & McDonnell and Ross Roley, SPIDERS Operational Manager at the US Pacific Command.
ORIGINALLY PRESENTED FEB. 27, 2014 Course Presenters: Robi Robichaud, Senior Engineer, Federal Wind, Deployment and Market Transformation, National Renewable Energy Lab Michael Dungan, Ph.D, Principal, DOD Wind Energy NEPA Specialist, Cardno TEC, Inc. Course Length: 1.5 Hours Course Credit Hours: 1.5 PDHs Course Overview: Join this webinar for an overview of wind energy projects and technology trends, issues, and risks from a technology, market, resource, and environmental perspective. Wind energy continues to be among the most cost-competitive renewable energy when compared to fossil fuels. The industry in the United States has transformed and projects that didn’t make sense years ago may now or soon become feasible. Sign up now and learn from the panel of experts as they distinguish fears from facts regarding wind energy at military installations and identify potential risks and opportunities in wind energy.
In this session, you’ll learn about key terms, such as “conservation” and “sustainability”; energy conservation and why it is important; facts about energy use including that energy use is not just use of electricity; costs of using and wasting energy; and tips, strategies, and opportunities for saving energy. Duration: 22 minutes.
