Double Feature: Report on HotChips 2022 and a view of the US National CHIPS Act

Virtual: https://events.vtools.ieee.org/m/332275

Continuing our tradition of giving a report on the semiconductor industry’s annual HotChips conference (in 2022 they celebrated the 34th edition), the speaker will share his perspective on what was new, what was slightly warmed over and what we can really look forward to in the coming years. But beyond this annual conference, there was also intense activity taking place in the corridors of Washington DC and after some hand wringing, the US Congress finally passed the Chips Act of 2022. The second half of the presentation will cover numerous aspects of this, what does it really entail, does it help or is it a drop in the bucket? That depends on who you ask. Not an easy document to digest, and with insights gathered from different personae, the speaker will attempt to give you the skinny on this. Interestingly – in the last 8 weeks, there have been some developments in the chip shortage supply chain. We will squeeze in a couple of items, as this does have implications overall for all industries.

FERC Order 2222: Key Concepts and Ongoing Steps Towards DER Aggregations in Wholesale Markets

Virtual: https://events.vtools.ieee.org/m/332440

FERC Order No. 2222 will help usher in the electric grid of the future and promote competition in electric markets by removing the barriers preventing distributed energy resources (DERs) from competing on a level playing field in the organized capacity, energy and ancillary services markets run by regional grid operators. This rule enables DERs to participate alongside traditional resources in the regional organized wholesale markets through aggregations, opening U.S. organized wholesale markets to new sources of energy and grid services. It will help provide a variety of benefits including: lower costs for consumers through enhanced competition, more grid flexibility and resilience, and more innovation within the electric power industry. The rule allows several sources of distributed electricity to aggregate in order to satisfy minimum size and performance requirements that each may not be able to meet individually. FERC staff will provide an overview of the rule’s requirements and the compliance efforts to date.

VIRTUAL PRESENTATION: COMMITTING TO BEING A HIGH IMPACT LEADER AS AN ENGINEER

Virtual: https://events.vtools.ieee.org/m/330680

Engineers often get a bad wrap as being committed to their profession but not to leadership. Leadership is the number one key to building successful organizations and teams and can also be a key to gaining acceptance of ideas. Leaders are a major influence on the culture in which people work, on how people are treated, and how things get done. Engineers can be excellent, high impact leaders who make a difference in lives and organizations. However, to do so they must be committed leaders as well as committed engineers and become students of how to lead and bring out the best in people, teams, and organizations. This session will provide a practical understanding of the importance of skilled leadership, the impact leaders can have, and the critical skills engineers need to learn to be leaders committed to making a difference. Speaker(s): Dr Don Warrick, Professor of Leadership and Organizational Change, Agenda: 10:00 am - 10:45 am (Mountain Time): Introduction and Presentation by Dr Don Warrick 10:45 am - 11:00 am (Mountain Time): Questions Virtual: https://events.vtools.ieee.org/m/330680
