CEMTEK KVB-Enertec’s 2019 NetDAHS Edge™ User Group Conference

We worked, we learned, we networked but most of all, we collaborated on the future enhancements of NetDAHS Edge™. This in-depth collaboration allows us to customize and meet the needs of our NetDAHS Edge Users.

The NetDAHS Edge User Group spanned two days filled with a comprehensive seminar & training that was provided by our NetDAHS Leaders and Guest Speakers who shared their expertise. It also provided a valuable networking opportunity and set the stage for further DAHS business development.

The two days consisted of sessions designed for several industries including power generation, petrochemical/refining, cement manufacturing, steel and glass manufacturing, and many others. Various topics were covered each day including Regulatory Updates, Software Support & Training Updates, Live Demonstration of NetDAHS Edge Software Latest Features and Development Road Map, Reviewing DAHS Values and Configurations, Alarm Configurations, Building Reports, Customer Software Enhancement Suggestion Session, and more!

We had the honor of having many distinguished guest speakers including:
• Chris Worley from the US EPA, Clean Air Markets Division
• Elizabeth Nikki Bickar from DSG Solutions
• Jordan Laster from Alliance Source Testing
• Thomas Batts from DTE Energy
• Daniel Kamler II from OG&E

We celebrated our hard work at the Franklin Institute with a dinner event at the Fels Planetarium. Where we networked in the Space Command Center, had the opportunity to experience Virtual Reality, and enjoyed a fabulous dinner under the stars. We bonded while listening to great music, sharing stories and watching a great show!

Did we mention the Environmental Awards?
CEMTEK KVB-Enertec likes to recognize our clients who excel in their commitment to Environmental Stewardship. During our evening dinner event, we presented two Environmental Awards.

Congratulations to Lower Colorado River Authority for being one of this year’s winners.

• As a steward of the environment, LCRA protects the water and lands of the lower Colorado River basin and educates our customers about water and energy conservation.
• They offer residential and commercial rebates, grants for water-efficiency projects and other resources. • In addition to operating their electric generating facilities efficiently and in an environmentally responsible manner, they have committed millions of dollars to further improve emissions of their power plants.
• LCRA instituted an Energy Investigation Program which teaches school students and their families about energy use, generation and delivery. This program is offered to our wholesale electric customers, who sponsor the program at schools within their service areas.
• They help private landowners become better stewards of their land through the Creekside Conservation Program. • They also participate in many events to further environmental stewardship such as lake and river clean-up to further environmental awareness.

Congratulations to Minnkota Power Cooperative who was also an Environmental Award recipient.

• Some of the ways that Minnkota exemplifies their commitment to the environment are: Minnkota Power is investing in carbon capture and storage technology to reduce carbon emissions from their power plants. Known as Project Tundra, the venture is still in the research and feasibility stages, but it shows promise as a real-world solution to operating in a carbon-constrained world.
• Minnkota has joined with America’s Electric Cooperatives to volunteer time and donate equipment to help build electric systems in rural areas in developing nations. This effort has helped bring this life-changing technology to more than 110 million people. Electricity opens up a whole world of new possibilities: better health care, better education and safer streets. It also helps communities become self-sufficient.

• Most recently, Minnkota sent an employee to Guatemala and donated a high-reach bucket truck to help improve their electric system.
