Utilities to Make the Right Strategic Decisions Regarding
the Development of their Power Assets & Portfolio

Power generation, transmission and distribution infrastructures are becoming increasingly

key assets and technologies that will enable the transition to new business models enabling them
to survive an 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.
