“I found the selection and breadth of topics to be highly relevant and the discussion that ensued stretched the bounds of traditional ‘utility’ thinking” - Erik Hitchcock, Treasury Manager, Centerpoint Energy.

Infocast, the leading business intelligence and networking events producer in the renewable energy and finance industries, is excited to announce the return of the ERCOT Market Summit, scheduled to take place February 27- March 1, 2018 in Austin, Texas.

Topics to be discussed include not only power prices and dispatch curve, but also how the changing generation mix will drive opportunities for storage, DR and aggregated DERs to meet market needs.

The Summit will provide a better understanding on how the Bill Hogan/Susan Pope proposals could drive the market. Attendees will be able to reassess resource adequacy and portfolio strategies post-coal plant retirements in Texas, learn the impacts of the solar buildout on dispatch, price volatility and transmission congestion, and explore opportunities in grid-connected storage and fast-responding assets.

This year‘s participating organizations at the Summit include influential industry leaders such as ERCOT, Austin Energy, CenterPoint Energy, Citigroup, First Solar, FTI Consulting, GE Energy Financial Services, and many more.

Key presentations include a market redesign report by Bill Hogan of The Texas A&M University System and Susan Pope of FTI Consulting, commissioned by Calpine and NRG, that will address the market economics disrupting energy sectors outside of wind and solar.
