The Annual Power-Europe Summit | Enabling Power Utilities to Make the Right
Strategic Decisions Regarding the Development of their Power Assets &

Power generation, transmission and distribution infrastructures are becoming increasingly
integrated within market-demand driven and climatic reactive response systems. As a
consequence, the electricity sector is undergoing a dramatic overhaul in terms of the development of
key assets and technologies that will enable the transition to new business models enabling them
to survive and succeed within a new energy paradigm.

As Europe’s most exclusive strategic forum for the power utility industry, the
Power-Europe annually
focuses on the challenges and opportunities facing power portfolio management. Examining the
inter-play between the technological, regulatory and economic trends affecting the development of
conventional and renewable power, delegates gain crucial market intelligence regarding how to
proceed with the development and management of their assets and power portfolio. At the summit
delegates have the opportunity to hear from the most qualified experts bringing the issues to life
using the most recent, high profile and relevant case-studies. Ultimately the 2016 Summit analyses
the key factors to enabling the implementation of an effective strategy to steer your organisation
through the ever changing regulatory, technological and economic environment.

Featuring over 60 industry speakers from leading European power utilities, T&D companies, power
technology developers and financiers including:The European Commission, RWE, Finnish Energy
Market Authority; CEER, ENEL S.p.A, Vattenfall Europe Innovation, TENNET, Elektrilevi, Axpo Italia
