This presentation provides an overview of the current and prospective methods used to generate electricity. Each generation method is discussed along with its upsides and downsides. An examination where and why various methods (Coal, Natural Gas, Nuclear, Oil, Hydro, Solar, Wind, Bio, etc.) are used follows. With extensive experience of the speaker while working in the area of nuclear energy, visiting Chernobyl power plant site in person, putting few years focus to Fukushima Daiichi etc., this presentation closes with a look at overall trends in the energy sector.
David Vaglia has his roots in the energy engineering. He began his career in the coal mining industry, working as an applications engineer in power distribution, and electric train haulage systems, both above and below ground. He has also worked in the renewable energy sector, investigating new concept wind generation applications and solar thermal systems. Mr. Vaglia transitioned to instrumentation and control working with supervisory control and data acquisition systems, and then to the Man-Machine Interface design of nuclear power plant control rooms. Mr. Vaglia has a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering and a Bachelor of Arts in General Arts and Sciences, both from the Pennsylvania State University, and a Master of Business Administration from the University of Pittsburgh. He is a registered Professional Engineer working in the state of Pennsylvania.
