About the Conference

Don’t miss the Premier Energy Conference on the East Coast.  New York State and the Nation continue to be dramatically impacted by changes in energy policy.  Whether the Public Service Commission’s Reforming the Energy Vision, the New York Green Bank, a new NYISO zone, or the roll out of Federal Energy Regulatory Commission Order 1000, the energy landscape is changing.  The conference will examine the impact of these policy changes on the competitive bulk electric market place with associated impacts on the use, development, and pricing of renewable sources of supply.

The Conference will kick off with a Welcome Reception on Wednesday, April 29, and there will be plenty of opportunity for networking.

You will hear from leading experts in the field of energy, technology, academia, government policy and business.  The format of the Conference will allow you learn, meet experts, and ask questions on issues most important to you.  Morning sessions are devoted to establishing a foundation for understanding the current status of the energy market place.  Afternoon sessions will focus on the practical experiences of professionals working in these emerging energy markets.
