Transmission Summit East 2016

April 19, 2016

Washington, DC  |  Washington Marriott Georgetown Hotel

ScottMadden, Inc., will join industry leaders as a sponsor and presenter at the Infocast 19th Annual Transmission Summit. This three-day program features two distinct events: The Transmission Executive Forum on March 29 will address transmission’s role in the grid of the future, while the Transmission Summit scheduled for March 30–31 will discuss the biggest challenges and opportunities facing the electric transmission industry.

Transmission Executive Forum

During the Transmission Executive Forum, David Adams, director at ScottMadden, will serve as conference chair.
Panel Discussion:
Meeting Public Policy Goals – Transmission as a Support for Renewable Energy and Reliability
This panel of state energy executives will explore how their renewable and reliability policies are evolving and address:
  • Which technologies are states currently thinking about pursuing to meet carbon reduction goals?
  • What types of generation projects are going to launch and how will they impact transmission?
  • Is adding transmission even necessary in many cases? Or, could reliability be attained through repowering what is left of the oil fleet with natural gas?
Moderator: Kevin Hernandez, Manager, ScottMadden
Panelists:
  • Jared Alholinna, Regional Transmission Planning Strategist, Great River Energy
  • Gerald Deaver, Manager, Regional Transmission Policy, Xcel Energy
  • Bruce Edelston, President, Energy Policy Group
Transmission Summit

During the Transmission Summit, Cristin Lyons, partner and grid transformation practice leader at ScottMadden, will serve as conference chair.
Presentation:
A Survey of the Generation Landscape
