Get the Latest Insights on How Market Redesign Affects Opportunities in the Exploding Texas Clean Energy Industry!

Load growth in the Lone Star State has exceeded all expectations. Large energy users like crypto, data centers, and post-IRA manufacturing as well as the state’s rising population are creating massive load increases. Despite great uncertainty caused by the impacts of recently implemented reforms, still-to-be implemented reforms, and proposed-but-not-yet-enacted legislation, the situation holds enormous opportunities for renewables development.

To seize these opportunities, however, a deep understanding of changes ongoing in the Texas power markets is required. Business planning has never been more challenging. The best possible comprehension of numerous rule reform impacts on the Texas power grid and Phase 2 of ERCOT market redesign is essential. At the same time, developers, financiers, and other stakeholders need accurate analyses of the consequences of proposed new policies, extreme weather, and price volatility in the ERCOT market.

Infocast’s Texas Clean Energy Summit is the best place to meet and learn from policy makers, as well as the state’s most active developers, asset owners, QSEs, offtakers, financiers, investors, and other key players. This remarkable group will discuss the booming opportunities and looming challenges in today’s renewables environment. This is a can’t miss opportunity to get the most advanced current understanding of critical issues like:

  • PCM and other ERCOT market rule changes, and how they will affect procedures, expectations, and the fundamentals that will drive the market in 2024 and beyond
  • The current market dynamics, business models, and financing environment of wind, solar, storage, and hybrid projects, including how the IRA’s changes affect projects in Texas
  • The new firming requirements affecting wind and solar – will this super-charge the already big storage boom in the state?
  • Today’s strategies for mitigating transmission congestion and basis risk while balancing reliability issues, the integration of DERs & VPPs, and preparing for the future of the Texas grid
  • The needs and expectations of large energy users and other offtaker procurement decisions, as well as how they affect the grid, financeability, load projections, and contract negotiations
  • Proposed new state legislation affecting both power prices and renewables projects – hear expert opinions on timelines, potential stumbling blocks, and strategies to move projects forward
