Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) July 21, 2014
Facing serious resource adequacy issues, and still reeling from last winter’s polar vortex disruption, major changes are coming to Northeastern power and gas markets. Proposals have been made to provide firm gas supply contracts through the ISOs, revamp central capacity markets to provide more incentives for new generation, establish “energy highway” and similar programs, and to radically change the way electricity is procured, distributed and regulated. With these new rules in the works, opportunities will open up for a wide variety of energy market players.
Infocast has launched the Northeast Energy Summit to address these issues, and more. This meeting will examine how the extreme weather from the polar vortex impacted gas and power markets, and how the lessons learned are driving changes to market rules and regional policies. It will bring policy-makers together with utility, IPP, gas supply and demand response executives to explore the opportunities to solve resource adequacy problems. They will assess how the changing gas flows and supplies from the Marcellus will impact Northeastern energy market, the impacts of centralized capacity market changes on project economics and market operations, as well as whether the contemplated market changes will trigger the massive build out needed. Key stakeholders will examine how DR, microgrids and other potential game-changers will affect the demand side of the market, and whether additional transmission assets and inter-market trading will provide relief. Finally, financiers will provide their perspectives on financeability of projects in the Northeast market.
Connect with key players such as NYISO, ISO-NE, PJM Interconnection, OIESO, National Grid, Constellation, Spectra Energy, NRG Energy, Borrego Solar, GDF Suez, Monitoring Analytics, New York State Public Service Commission, and the Department of Public Utilities for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Attend to receive the strongest and most up-to date details from the most knowledgeable stakeholders regarding regulatory changes, resource adequacy concerns, and future projects in the Northeast.
