Utility Regulation Conference: Rates & Reliability

December 5-6, 2017, The Liaison Capitol Hill, Washington, DC

Produced by the Knowledge Center, an Executive Conference from S&P Global Market Intelligence

The 2017 Utility Regulation Conference is the pre-eminent executive conference for power and gas utility executives focused on their growth and profitability strategies.  This year’s event features the industry’s most influential utility executives, advisers, regulators and investment professionals sharing their perspectives on the overall landscape and financial alternatives in the current regulatory environment. 

Whether you are anticipating a rate case, anticipating the impact of tax reform, monitoring upcoming FERC rulings, or looking for strategies to increase profitability, you will receive essential intelligence necessary to make informed decisions. We won’t focus on high level trends or recent surveys, but rather on tactics you can take back to your organization.

Make plans to attend today.
