Explore Huge Growth Prospects in the Southeast Renewable Energy Market with Key Players

The renewable energy market is exploding in the Southeast! With advantageous pricing and solar resources roughly the equal of the Southwest, the demands of corporate and other customers for clean power are driving utilities, state commissions and communities to develop and procure solar power. Likewise, data centers and some cities are looking for delivery of energy from wind farms located outside the Southeast.

Droves of developers are looking to satisfy pent up demand for cheap clean energy. However, tightening PPA terms, the potential for QF contract reform and lengthening interconnection queues mean that developers and suppliers must work closely with utilities, customers and financiers to put together economically viable, innovatively structured and ultimately long-term profitable projects.

Southeast Renewable Energy 2017 is the networking event where the entire southeast renewable energy community gathers to get the latest insights into the market and to meet key players. It is your best chance to:

  • Learn about the key trends impacting renewable energy project development, finance and investment in the Southeast
  • Meet with utility procurement and interconnection managers
  • Engage in networking and deal-making with the decision-makers driving the industry forward

PLUS! Attend the Pre-Summit Briefing, Southeast Renewable Energy Policy, Procurement, and Program Frameworks to assess the markets in NC, VA, GA, TN, FL, SC and AL!
