4th Annual Southeast Clean Power Summit
Event Description and Agenda:
The Southeast (SE) U.S. accounts for more than one-fifth of the country's total energy consumption and this share is expected to grow over the next several years. States in the region face increasing demand for electricity driven by rapid population growth and higher per capita energy use. The region has a modest portfolio of renewable energy and demand side options that need to be continually developed to meet current and future electricity needs. Importing renewable energy resources from other states and grid system operators is an important option.
Solar, wind energy, distributed generation and energy efficiency continue to expand as a percentage of consumed power in the SE. The boom in solar power has moved well beyond the rooftops of homes and businesses to large-scale projects. There has been increasing interest in wind energy with the continued development of the Plains & Eastern and Southern Cross HVDC projects (importing wind from SPP and ERCOT, respectively),as well as several PPAs signed by TVA & Southern Company. Energy efficiency improvements are now a critical part of the solution to meet the region's energy challenge too. Finally,development of small-scale distributed generation is reducing carbon emissions and generating electricity from renewable energy sources closer to the point of consumption.
This conference will provide vital information regarding the future of the Southeast's clean power supply and infrastructure. It will feature experts from throughout the region discussing the most current information and what it's likely to mean for stakeholders in the region.
