ABOUT THE SUMMIT

 

Meet With The Mountain West’s Leading Energy Decision Makers to Discuss Upcoming Procurements, Political Developments & Take Advantage of The Vast Renewable Energy Opportunities in the Region

Opportunities for clean energy continue to grow at an exponential rate in the Mountain West. Spurred by the incentives created by the Inflation Reduction Act and the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, utilities, local and state governments, and corporate energy buyers are procuring ever increasing amounts of green power to ensure they meet climate and decarbonizations goals and ambitious RPS targets. At the same time, progress continues towards the development of more formally organized western electricity markets and only those who can keep up with all these developments will be able to take full advantage of incentives and procurement opportunities.

The Mountain West Renewables Summit is where you will hear directly from all of the region’s leading energy decision makers. Local experts from IOUs and municipal utilities, co-ops, and corporate energy buyers will come together with the regions’ policymakers and regulators, cities, and the renewables community to network, exchange the latest information and insights, and discuss their needs, challenges, and the initiatives they have underway to achieve the Mountain West’s climate and clean energy goals.

Connect with leading energy buyers, active market participants, and policymakers driving the regions’ renewable procurement and buildout to:

  • Get the latest on how 2023’s mega trends will impact the region’s energy markets with an up-to-the-minute update on Federal and state legislation, regulations, and mandates and how implementation impacts real-world decision-making on the local level amongst all procurers
  • Obtain the latest information on renewable energy financing in the western states, including how contracts are being structured to shore up supply chain, construction, and other delays and cost issues
  • Learn about the procurement strategies and plans of IOUs, municipal utilities and co-ops
  • Hear what corporates and cities need and the solutions they are looking for
  • Analyze the progress made on integration of renewables in the western states as they continue to look at the potential of forming a Western ISO/RTO.
