Exploring the Energy Transition in Germany
ScottMadden, Inc., one of North America’s leading energy consulting firms, is proud to join the Solar Electric Power Association (SEPA) to lead a group of approximately 25 U.S. energy industry executives to the bellwether energy market of Germany to exchange information with electricity and solar market leaders who are adapting to change in this dynamic and controversial environment.
This select group of executives will meet with energy industry peers with the goal of returning with insights and practical knowledge that can be applied to planning and business decisions in the United States. The trip, taking place September 14–18, will feature face-to-face meetings with thought leaders and decision makers from the electric utility, transmission, and renewable energy industries; government, trade, and industry associations; and market experts. The program will be interactive and focus on questions including:
- What are the objectives of the energy transition? Have the selected policies been effective in meeting those objectives?
- What unanticipated impacts have emerged? How are they being addressed?
- What new business models can help electric utilities adapt and grow in a market with significant distributed generation penetration and declining revenue?
- What tools are needed to cost effectively shift from a traditional fuel mix to a greater renewable resource mix without sacrificing reliability?
- Who has developed a successful road map for energy company transition?
Chris Vlahoplus, partner and clean tech & sustainability practice leader at ScottMadden, and John Pang, partner at ScottMadden, will attend this event. For real time updates, follow them @ChrisVlahoplus and @PangJohnC.
