The 12th Annual European Power Generation Strategy Summit | Enabling
Power Utilities to Make the Right Strategic Decisions Regarding the
Development of their Power Generation Portfolio

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 part of Europe’s most exclusive strategic forum for the power utility industry (
Power-Europe) the
European Power Generation Summit annually focuses on the challenges and opportunities facing
power utilities regarding the development and management of their power generation portfolio.
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 2019 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
