The strategic landscape for generation owners, developers and investors has shifted. A combination of factors, including new environmental regulations, currently cheap natural gas, and an uncertain outlook for the economic recovery are causing a major re-evaluation of generation asset portfolio strategies. The implications for the future of the U.S. generation fleet, asset M&A transactions, equipment investment, and the development of new generation assets are all profound.
Infocast has brought together a remarkable group of leading industry players to share their insights, compare notes, and lay the groundwork for new generation portfolios in this evolving environment. Our Power Generation Summit: Transitioning to the New Fleet – Replacement, Expansion and Retrofit Strategies will also provide inputs from regulators, financiers, EPC contractors and equipment vendors. You will hear various up-to-the-minute briefings and analyses, including:
-How will the evolution of the fleet impact valuation of generation owners’ current portfolios?
-What are the expansion, acquisition and divestiture opportunities?
-Will the capital market and investors be there to fund the expansion and renovation?

-When and by how much will load demand recover?
