Feb. 5, 2024 – Speaking at the POWERGEN International conference in New Orleans last month, Sargent & Lundy’s Kevin Lauzze discussed the need to strike a balance between the high costs of implementing decarbonization measures and the higher costs of inaction in mitigating climate change impacts. The presentation was featured in an article, “Decarbonizing power: It all comes down to the bottom line,” in Power Engineering published January 23.
Lauzze was among a six-member delegation from Sargent & Lundy delivering presentations and serving on panels at this year’s three-day POWERGEN exhibition and summit. In the article, he discusses considerations for deploying decarbonization projects and advised taking an “all of the above” approach with a mix of hydrogen, renewables, and nuclear power combined with carbon capture technology for existing fossil fuel plants.
The theme for the POWERGEN conference was Destination 2050 and focused on the transition to cleaner and more sustainable energy sources. Along with Lauzze, the conference featured presentations from Kevin Huberty, Julianna Crumlish, Matthew Heermann, and Marc Prasse. Danielle Flagg served as a conference committee chairperson and led the development of the carbon capture and emissions control track.
