Meet 500+ Policymakers, Utilities & Renewable Players Working to Seize the Opportunities and Meet the Challenges of Burgeoning Southeastern Load Growth

An unprecedented expansion of energy demand is in full swing across the Southeast, driven by new data centers and manufacturing facilities. Southeastern states and major utilities are projecting the need to dramatically — and quickly — ramp up their current power generation capacities; in some cases, to double it. And much of this demand is coming from customers demanding clean energy.

However, while this is a huge opportunity for the renewable energy industry, fully embracing that opportunity requires understanding a series of critical issues. How will renewables be affected by plans to rapidly add gas-fired capacity? How can increasing local opposition to siting and permitting of renewable projects be overcome? What strategies can developers adopt to optimize their projects’ status in the growing interconnection queues across the Southeast? How can projects be structured to handle increased interest rates and other macroeconomic trends making financing more difficult? What are the potential impacts of the upcoming election on renewable energy and how are they affecting developer strategies?

Infocast’s 9th annual Southeast Renewable Energy event, is the ONLY cconference covering this burgeoning market that gets “everyone in the room” from across the entire region. Featuring key state policymakers, critical decision-makers, leading utility executives, financiers and renewable energy players, the event does a critical survey of the most dynamic states in the region — including North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Georgia, Tennessee, and MISO South — to provide definitive updates on the issues you will need to understand to seize the very best opportunities.

Join 500+ of the Southeast’s most important renewable industry executives at this profoundly informative event. It will delve deeply into the following questions:

  • How will unprecedented increases in demand be translated to procurements and investments?
  • How do utilities across the region plan to balance their decarbonization commitments with reliability concerns?
  • What are the macro trends affecting the project finance market, and how can developers structure projects to cope with them?
  • How are the new transferability markets being used to deal with tax equity market constraints?
  • Where and how and by whom will standalone and co-located storage be deployed to boost reliability and resilience?
  • How well new are interconnection reforms and transmission planning processes working to ease pressures on queues and the grid?
  • What are the most effective methods to deal with local opposition to siting and permitting?
  • Why is role of insurance in mitigating and indemnifying operational and financial risks becoming both more critical and more difficult?
  • What will the potential impacts of offshore wind, wind, and green hydrogen projects on the market for renewable energy in the Southeast?

Don’t miss this opportunity to network with and learn from key decision-makers, leading players, and your peers about the challenges and opportunities of renewable energy development in what will be a remarkably active market. Please review our remarkable agenda and list of participants and reserve your place today.
