POWER-GEN International brings the sharpest minds in the industry together for three days of education, training, fast-track networking and new business negotiation.
With passage of the Energy Policy Act of 2005, the power industry faces many important questions in 2006:
•Will natural gas prices ease as liquefied natural gas supplies come nearer to fruition?
•How many of the 100-plus coal-fired power plants under development will progress toward construction?
•Will the nuclear renaissance sustain and build its momentum?
•How large of a share of the U.S. power mix will renewable energy acquire?
•Will environmental pressures lead to regulations on carbon dioxide emissions?
Beyond such questions, the industry will also be subject to intensifying competitive pressures, leading to further consolidation and cost-reduction efforts.
Get ready. With the industry on the threshold of change, there's never been a more critical time to learn about the latest developments and trends impacting the industry in 2006.
