There is a revolution underway in the way that the world will produce and deliver electricity supplies. Decentralized generation offers numerous economic and environmental benefits and can produce clean and reliable power at a cost that is rapidly falling. The traditional utility business model is being questioned by investors, consumers and regulators.
Join us for a discussion of these cutting edge issues and to explore the commercial opportunities for decentralized energy at the World Alliance for Decentralized Energy (WADE) Annual Conference and Joint Meeting with the U.S. Northeast Clean Heat and Power Initiative.
In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, decentralized power is the key to greater reliability and resiliency for the region and the world. There is no greater opportunity in the world for decentralized energy than in the northeast region of the U.S., where the conference takes place.
The U.S. energy and natural gas supply outlook has never been brighter, with long term abundant supplies and moderate prices. Over 60 GW of older coal fired generation will be retired in the coming years. President Obama has announced a goal of delivering 40 GW of CHP by 2020.
