Meeting the energy demand

The North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) recently published a report that cautions about rising forecasts for upcoming energy requirements and a lack of a definite plan for obtaining the necessary power supply. With the U.S. experiencing a revival in its manufacturing industry, and the growth of power-hungry data centres being built to support artificial intelligence technologies, this combination is predicted to drive a substantial rise in energy consumption, far surpassing previous estimates made by grid operators. Also, the expected increase in energy demand may be difficult to meet due to the retirement of power plants and the challenges in bringing new generation and transmission assets online. In this session hear panellists discuss:  

  • LNG export is booming in the US. What privately financed projects are supporting this sector?  
  • How has the regulatory environment impacted investment opportunities? 
  • What practices should be employed when using reporting frameworks? 
  • What implications do emerging technologies such as AI have? 
  • How is the US energy matrix changing and where are investors finding conventional and renewable power opportunities? 
  • The disruption of global politics and its impact on energy prices. 
  • Impact of climate change and extreme weather.
