Southeast Renewable Energy - Presented by Infocast

 

ABOUT THE SUMMIT

 

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

This is the ONLY conference covering this burgeoning market that gets key state policy-makers, 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 definitive updates on the issues you’ll need to understand to seize the very best opportunities across this dynamic region.

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, we got over three hundred regulators, utility executives, renewable energy developers, financiers and other active participants to a remarkably insightful event. We expect the event to be 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. Please review our remarkable agenda and speaker lineup, and reserve your place today.

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.

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?)
