America’s energy industry is experiencing increasing pressures for change. Today’s public utilities must map out their power generation and distribution strategies in an increasingly complex web of high-stakes challenges and opportunities.
Key issues include new questions about nuclear safety, the emergence of inexpensive natural gas, implementation of Renewable Portfolio Standards (RPS), the advent of electric vehicles, the rise of distributed energy generation and the need to adopt new technologies to properly deal with them.
Tony Earley, PG&E’s new CEO and one of the energy industry’s most experienced chief executives, will share his perspectives on the major trends that he believes will shape the future of the industry and for PG&E and its 15 million customers.
