Agenda Released for the Expanded 2019 Energy Drone & Robotics Summit

The Energy Drone & Robotics Summit, taking place June 12-13 in Houston, Texas at the Woodlands Waterway Marriott, has released the full event agenda, which includes 60+ sessions and will include 100+ speakers over the two days. In addition, the Energy Drone & Robotics Summit will host two workshops and a Flyability Elio 2 demo day prior to the start of the Summit & Expo, on June 10 – 11.

With content sourced from our Energy Drone & Robotics Coalition community and guidance by the industry leaders on the 38-member advisory board, this year’s agenda reflects the growing needs of energy and engineering industries in expanding unmanned systems programs in their operations. Additional sessions, speakers and space have been added to meet these emerging needs.

“Doubling again in participation and size for the third year in a row, this is again the largest and most innovative set of best practice workshops, general sessions, new focused breakout sessions, use / technical / business cases and tech updates / demos that we have ever built for the energy industry,” said Sean Guerre, Director, Energy Drone & Robotics Coalition, powered by InnovateEnergy. “With hundreds of topic submissions and the quality advice of our industry advisory board, we have built an action-packed Summit that serves the rapidly growing industry needs for those scaling their energy & engineering drone & robotics programs to improve safety, security, efficiency, and ROI.”

Just a few noteworthy sessions include:

  • API (American Petroleum Institute) Guide to Developing an Unmanned Aircraft Systems Program: Official Release & Roll Out
  • How Energy UAV / Robotics Programs are Meeting Current and Future Industry and Regulatory Compliance
  • Fugitive Emissions / Leak Detection Panel: OGI-Optical Gas Imaging, Advanced Thermal Imaging and Lasers
  • Energy Robotics Roundtable: Autonomous Operations & Successful Enterprise Deployments – Ground, Air and Water
  • Enabling Energy Enterprises to Monitor & Digitize Critical Infrastructure Assets and Utilizing Data Analytics for Valuable Business Insights

Four breakout session streams focused on key topics in the industry are new to the Summit’s agenda:

  • UAV Operations
  • Robotics / Automation
  • Data / Analytics / AI
  • Industrial Unmanned Security & C-UAS

The complete agenda can be viewed here.

In addition to the expanded conference programming, the 2019 expo floor has more than doubled in size, including 100+ leading innovators in drones, robotics, data and AI; hands-on live demos; viewing of unmanned systems in action at the Drone Zone and Robot Row; and presentations from industry leaders on specific tactical use cases on two learning lab stages.

Attendees will get the opportunity to connect with over 1,000 energy and engineering leaders in drones & robotics from companies including: BASF, BP, CenterPoint, Cheniere, Chevron, ConocoPhillips, CPS Energy, Dominion Energy, Dow Chemical Company, Duke Energy, Encana, Energy Transfer, First Solar, Israel – Ministry of Energy, Phillips 66, San Diego Gas & Electric, Shell, Xcel Energy and many more.
