Background

Michael Huvane, Senior Consultant, and Scott Yenzer, Business Development Director – Middle East, were honored to represent JMJ at the American Clean Power Association’s (ACP) Operations and Maintenance, and Safety Conference earlier this month. The ACP O&M and Safety conference is where the renewable energy industry connects to identify solutions for new and unique challenges in health and safety; operations and maintenance; workforce training and development, and quality assurance. Michael Huvane led a session titled, “Safety Culture and Leadership: Keys to High-Performance Organizations,” alongside Brian Martin, Senior VP, Health and Safety, Smart Wires. 

About the event

To keep the world connected, the power industry needs to also be connected. Teams must work together to maintain efficient and resilient operations, ensure grid reliability and continue to keep safety as a top priority. The ACP event addresses industry challenges around leadership, technology, culture, and solutions.

Key discussion topics

  • 415,000 Americans currently work in renewable energy, a figure that’s expected to double by 2030

    • Turbines (wind)
    • Batteries etc (storage)
    • Smart “valves” (transmission)
