A new energy world

What will be the destiny of today’s utilities as the tectonic plates continue to shift towards the new energy world? We will review the opportunities and challenges, given technological development and changing customer needs across thermal generation, renewables, grids and customer solutions. We will consider the changing shape of utilities as they continue to make choices and refine strategies that may be similar or diverge. The programme will include keynote presentations from companies and Moody’s analysts together with a panel discussion.

Why Attend?

The half-day conference is designed for experts in the sector: investors, issuers, intermediaries as well as regulators and professional services.
