Please join Ballard Spahr for our 11th Annual Wall Street Energy Briefing on October 15, 2013. We hope you also will join us at a reception immediately afterward.

Our keynote speaker is David Crane, CEO of NRG Energy, Inc.

Since we gathered in New York a year ago, the energy and power business has grown increasingly complex. This year's briefing will focus on evolving business models and how different companies, and their finance sources, are addressing questions such as: 

  • Are the availability and quality of PPAs shrinking?
  • What is the true impact of cheaper gas on power pricing and supply around the country?
  • Can the organized markets be successful with capacity and resource adequacy measures to encourage new construction? 
  • Is the explosive growth of renewables hitting a wall any time soon?
  • Will microgrids and distributed solar change the demand picture significantly? Will we see major utilities and IPPs make a significant entry into these markets?
  • Are the "new" business models financeable? Are the "capacity markets" financeable? 
  • What are the big challenges for non-incumbent transmission projects and investment?

The format for this popular event combines in-depth panel discussions with interviews. The result is an informative and lively conversation on the most pressing energy issues of the day.
