Welcome to The Annual European Power Generation Strategy Summit
& The Power Project Financing and New Power Technologies Forums
Wednesday 25th - Friday the 27th November 2015
Boscolo Carlo IV Hotel | Prague | Czech Republic


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

Power generation, transmission and distribution infrastructures are becoming increasingly
integrated within market-demand driven and climatic reactive response systems. As a
consequence, the electricity sector is undergoing a dramatic overhaul in terms of the development of
key assets and technologies that will enable the transition to new business models enabling them
to survive an succeed within a new energy paradigm.

As Europe’s most exclusive strategic forum for the power utility industry, the
European Power
Generation Strategy 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 gain crucial
market intelligence regarding how to proceed with the development and management of their
assets and power portfolio. At the summit delegates 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 2015 EPG Summit analyses the key factors to enabling the implementation of
an effective strategy to steer your organisation through the ever changing regulatory, technological
and economic environment.


The 2015 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
  • Moving Forward with the EU's Single Market for Electricity - Smart Power, Grids and How New
    European Interconnectors Will Impact Europe's Energy Utility Sector
