The Number One Event for the Texas Renewables Market, Where Offtakers and Renewable Energy Developers Meet

Everything is bigger in Texas and the renewable energy market is no exception. Solar is projected to grow by 7,787 MW over the next 5 years. In ERCOT alone, there are over 28 GW of Solar already in the queue. Added to 30GW of Wind in the queue, the state is one of the most attractive places for renewable development in the country. 

Despite the great opportunities, market challenges remain for the development industry: 

  • With 28,000 MW of Solar & 30,000 MW of Wind in the interconnection queue, How many will actually clear the queue successfully? And when?
  • What lessons will be learned from ERCOT’s performance and shrinking reserve margin in the summer of 2019?
  • What are the implications of the forward curve on renewable development & finance?
  • What new demands are corporate buyers and other offtakers making and how are they best incorporated in deal structures?
  • How are developers dealing with growing transmission congestion, and can increasing basis risk be mitigated?
  • What will the step down of the PTC and ITC mean for project economics, and what cost reduction methods are developers using to maintain margins? 

Only those with the best market insight will be able to put together economically viable, innovatively structured and ultimately long-term profitable projects that succeed. 

As the most popularly attended event by project developers, The Texas Renewable Energy Summit is the “place to be” to meet corporate offtakers, cities, munis, co-ops, the financing community, and other key stakeholders to sort out where the market is headed, keep abreast of the latest trends shaping the Texas renewables market, and get the latest insights into the market to chart the path forward to successful projects.
