ABOUT THE SUMMIT

 

Meet In-Person the Utilities, Corporates and Other Market Players Who Are Driving the Renewable Buildout in the Southeast

The Southeast Renewable Energy Summit is the ONLY conference covering this burgeoning market that gets key state policymakers, critical decision makers, and leading utility executives and renewable energy players from the most dynamic states in the region — including North Carolina, Virginia, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee, and Kentucky — to provide the most definitive updates on the issues you’ll need to understand to seize the very best opportunities.

This profoundly informative event will delve deeply into:

  • How utilities across the region plan to convert their clean energy commitments into their IRPs
  • What directions are increasingly sophisticated corporate buyers driving both energy policies and procurement strategies?
  • What roles will storage play in assuring reliability and resilience in a region troubled by increasingly violent storms and hurricanes?
  • How are increasing costs and inflationary pressures affecting developer strategies, the M&A market and project financing?
  • How MISO South and more generally transmission system access and development will affect opportunities across the region
  • And more…!

In 2021, over 300 regulators, utility executives, renewable energy developers, financiers, and other active participants joined this remarkably insightful event. We expect the event to be even bigger and better in 2022!

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 this remarkably active market.

RTO Insider

Website

RTO Insider™ is your eyes and ears on the organized electric markets, putting you “inside the room” at PJM Interconnection, MISO, NYISO, ISO-NE and SPP. We provide independent, objective coverage and analysis of the wholesale electric industry’s markets and policymaking, saving you time and ensuring you don’t miss the issues most important to your interests.

Features include:

  • Coverage of key RTO/ISO committee, subcommittee and task force meetings. We’ll be there when you can’t.
  • Coverage of news events impacting the industry throughout the 35 states managed by the RTOs/ISOs.
  • Coverage of state and federal regulatory (FERC, EPA) & legislative news affecting RTO/ISO stakeholders.
  • Issue Briefs: Concise summaries of major issues (e.g., Order 1000, EPA’s 111(d) rule).

What RTO Insider isn’t: We are not advocates or representatives. You can trust that our coverage will not be slanted to the interests of any member or membership sector.

What RTO Insider is: A source for both the big picture (e.g. analyses of major FERC rulings and RTO stakeholder developments) and the details (why is Manual 28 being changed and what does that mean to me?)
