Responsible. Reliable. Power for All.
The 2023 Power R&D Conference invites a global perspective drawn from the world's leading academic and technical research and energy applications centers. The conference will be structured to showcase the newest research into emerging generation technologies and encourage collaboration between industry, researchers, and government in their practical application.
ASME Power R&D Provides Unique Window into the Future of Power Generation Attendees will participate in the:
- Presentations and discussions of emerging generation technologies, and the rejuvenation and the reapplication of existing technologies, to both renewable, conventional generation and hybrid sites.
- Exploration of technologies applicable to the reliable, efficient and economically-viable generation of electricity.
ASME is a not-for-profit membership organization that enables collaboration, knowledge sharing, career enrichment, and skills development across all engineering disciplines, toward a goal of helping the global engineering community develop solutions to benefit lives and livelihoods. Founded in 1880 by a small group of leading industrialists, ASME has grown through the decades to include more than 140,000 members in 151 countries. ASME has successfully enhanced performance and safety worldwide through its renowned codes and standards, conformity assessment programs, training courses, and journals.
The ASME Power Division celebrated its Centennial birthday in 2020. At its founding in 1920, the power industry was young and technically dynamic. Ideas abounded among engineers looking for ways to serve the growing demands for power. Consumers were buying and using all sorts of new labor-saving electrical devices for home and personal use. Power producers were looking for better and cheaper ways to generate and transmit electrical power to everyone who needed or wanted it. Today, we see similar dynamics at work in power generation with new and old sources of power generation meeting in a vortex of innovation as industry and consumers adopt new electric-driven technologies. The Power Division continues today assisting engineers in navigating their career paths and providing a technical understanding of these ever-evolving changes.
