Welcome to The Annual European Power Generation Strategy Summit
& The Power Project Financing and New Power Technologies Forums
Wednesday 26th - Friday the 28th November 2014
The InterContinental | Vienna | Austria

As Europe’s most exclusive strategic forum for the power utilities industry, the EPG summit annually
focuses on the challenges and opportunities facing power portfolio management. Examining the
inter-play between the technological, regulatory and economic trends affecting the development of
conventional and renewable power, delegates will gain valuable intelligence on how to proceed with
the development of their own assets.


Enabling European Power Generators to Make the Right Strategic Decisions Regarding the
Development of the Power Generation Portfolio

Currently, many energy infrastructure projects are in doubt as investors show reduced appetite for
risk and much more stringent requirements are demanded by lenders, however, there appears to
be distinct regional opportunities for operators that strive to either develop or acquire key assets
despite the difficult economic environment. What is the risk/return profile of such prospects, and how
do technological advances or limitations affect them?

Whether you are the CEO or board member from a leading European incumbent, or the chief analyst
from an IPP, at EPG you will have the opportunity to hear from the most qualified experts bringing the
issues to life using the most recent, high profile and relevant case studies. Ultimately the 2013 EPG
Summit strives to address the critical issues affecting the development of your organisation’s power
assets and enable you to implement an action plan towards effective forward planning for their
portfolio despite the volatile economic climate.

The 2013 Summit Will Address Key Issues Such As:

  • Strategic Planning for Coal, Gas, Nuclear and Renewable Power Generation
  • Thorough Examination of the Ongoing Economic Crisis and the Projections of Leading
    Economists on the Consequences for the European Power Utilities Industry
