Julia Balas will moderate a panel of developers and senior industry professionals to discuss the increasingly problematic outlook for PPAs and how many developers are turning their focus to power markets to try and determine how wind power can play a greater role.

What developers find is that power markets are undergoing transformation. Renewables penetration, baseload retirements, congestion challenges, and market design issues are among the factors driving change. So, what are implications for wind power development? Where are the opportunities and where are the threats for wind? This session will address these questions.

  • What opportunities are there for wind to receive capacity payments as an additional revenue stream?
  • In what markets might forward price curves open opportunities for hedged transactions?
  • What market changes might impact merchant tails?
  • Which markets pose congestion and integration issues?
  • Where might changes impact basis risks going forward?
