Infocast, the leading source in business intelligence and networking events producer, has announced the annual California Energy Summit, scheduled for May 28-30, 2014, taking place in San Francisco, CA.
With the retirement of SONGS and the impending closure of many older once-through cooling plants, the California energy market has entered a new, resource-challenged era. California regulators have responded with a raft of new policies, impacting virtually every aspect of the electric power industry from generation to consumers. Every serious player in the California power market needs to understand the full range of challenges and opportunities.
Infocast’s California Energy Summit 2014 will bring together policymakers, regulators, utility, IPP, renewable energy, energy storage and DR executives to provide the latest information on the opportunities and threats in California. They will also discuss the potential opportunities to solve resource adequacy problems and cover a full, new range of challenges and opportunities in the California energy market, including: How will the new Joint Reliability Plan create incentives for the development of new generation capacity and the procurement of backstop capacity? What will the 1.325 GW energy storage targets mean for the development and structure of a whole new industry segment? How will the Preferred Resources plan, for the first time, look to procure demand response, energy efficiency, storage and distributed generation to meet local needs? How will renewable power be affected by the development of the western Energy Imbalance Market?
The Summit will feature speakers from the California Public Utilities Commission, California Independent System Operator, PacifiCorp, Pacific Gas & Electric Company, San Diego Gas & Electric Company, Southern California Edison, AES Corporation, Calpine Corporation, Competitive Power Ventures, Dynegy Power LLC, Independent Energy Producers Association, Comverge, Inc., EnerNOC, California Wind Energy Association, EDF Renewable Energy, California Energy Storage Alliance, Clean Line Energy Partners LLC, ICF International, Marin Clean Energy, Sierra Club, Energy and Environmental Economics, Inc.

This is the chance to hear a unique gathering of policy-makers and senior executives from the entire electric power value chain discuss the real world implications of the revolutionary new policies for the 6th largest economy in the world.
