Southeast Renewable Energy - Presented by Infocast
  • Explore Major New Opportunities in the Southeast


Meet the Key Players from Development to Finance and Explore Huge Growth Prospects in Today’s Hottest Market!

The renewable energy market is rapidly growing in the southeastern U.S. The abundance of resources and the demand from corporate and other consumers for clean energy are driving utilities, state commissions, corporations and other consumers to develop and procure solar power and other renewables.

Droves of developers are looking to satisfy pent up demand for cheap, clean energy. However, the renewable energy market in the Southeast is currently experiencing significant changes. Major new utility procurements and green tariff programs are rolling out in areas previously developed via PURPA contracts and corporate offtake agreements, while new types of investors and financial structures are significantly changing project dynamics. Developers and suppliers must work closely with utilities, consumers and financiers to create innovative, economically viable, and ultimately profitable projects.

Southeast Renewable Energy 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
  • Meet with utility procurement 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 how legislative and regulatory policy initiatives are driving renewable energy market growth in NC, SC, VA, GA, FL, MS, LA, and AL.
