Infocast's Power Generation Summit 2011

Upcoming EPA Rulings Signal a Massive Transition to a New Paradigm for Power Generation

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwire - Oct 6, 2011) - Infocast will present their upcoming Power Generation Summit from November 2-4, 2011 at the Renaissance Dupont Circle Hotel in Washington, D.C. The strategic landscape for generation owners, generation developers and generation investors is shifting and the Summit is a unique forum for leading power industry players to sharing perspectives and strategize on the right generation portfolios for their business.

In recent years, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has proposed rules and regulations that will lead to dramatic cuts in power plant emissions. Due to these rulings, many power plants are making necessary changes to their operations by seeking lower-cost replacement options such as natural gas-fired generation and renewable energy. 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.

Therefore, the Power Generation Summit will provide clarity on the new landscape through insightful discussions with the power sector's leading generation asset owners, power project developers, regulators, financier, and EPC contractors to make deals and advance the transition to the new generation fleet.

The event is being assembled by ScottMadden Inc and Charbourne & Parke LLP, who will headline an exceptional roster of over 40 participating speakers including key industry leaders from American Electric Power, Southern Company, CPS Energy, MINNESOTA POWER (ALLETE), GENESIS POWER, Atlantic Power, Energy Capital Partners, DENHAM CAPITAL MANAGEMENT LP, FORTRESS INVESTMENT GROUP, Tennessee Valley Authority, Goldman Sachs, Credit Suisse, Texas Public Utility Commission, Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission, among many others. The attendees will be provided with a horizontal look at the industry with key emphasis on new solutions and innovations for the future.
