Upcoming events

    • 24 Jul 2018
    • 26 Jul 2018
    • Intercontinental Kansas City at the Plaza, Kansas City, MO


    Join SPP & MISO regulators, utilities and developers as they address the ongoing challenges and new opportunities facing the regions

    In SPP and MISO there are big changes afoot. Both SPP and MISO are retiring coal plants which opens the door for additional renewable projects but brings concerns of reliability to the forefront. In addition, the upcoming revisions to the SPP and MISO Joint Operating Agreement raise the prospects of improved interregional planning and market-to-market transfers at the seam for lower energy costs.

    However, as illustrated by the uncertain fate of the SPP’s expansion plans with the Mountain West Transmission Group, the situation remains fluid, and only those with the best and latest information on new developments will be able to take full advantage of the new realities in both of these organized markets. For example, questions remain about the long project interconnection queue backlog in both regions and exactly how the interregional planners will move forward.

    As a result, Infocast’s groundbreaking SPP & MISO Markets Summit will be the very first meeting covering both markets and will deliver a full range of insights from key regulators and leading utilities, municipalities, and cooperatives. They will provide the very latest information on solutions for a revamped Joint Operating Agreement, market expansion, resource adequacy, reliability and resiliency, and T&D investment plans. As SPP and MISO jointly experience their biggest transformation in over a decade, the time is now for IPPs, renewable developers, T&D developers, and smart grid solutions providers to grow with the markets.

    Don’t miss the Executive Briefing, SPP & MISO Markets Conditions and Projections, to get the latest market update including: Generation mix, what’s in the queue, load projections, power pricing forecasts, and more!

    About National Drive Electric Week:

    National Drive Electric Week, September 8-16, 2018, is a nationwide celebration to heighten awareness of today's widespread availability of plug-in vehicles and highlight the benefits of all-electric and plug-in hybrid-electric cars, trucks, motorcycles, and more. They are fun to drive, are less expensive and more convenient to fuel than gasoline vehicles, are better for the environment, promote local jobs, and reduce our dependence on foreign oil. Are you considering going electric? Come talk to owners who have successfully done so.

    Started in 2011 as National Plug In Day with the simple idea to hold simultaneous events across the country on the same day, by popular demand we have expanded to an entire week of events and changed the name to emphasize the thing we all want to do: drive electric. We expect National Drive Electric Week 2018 will again grow to include more events in more cities with more drivers reaching out to share the many advantages of driving electric with the public.
