Fact Finding Mission: Exploring the Energy Transition in Germany September 14-18, 2014

 SEPA will be leading a group of approximately 25 U.S. energy industry executives to the bellwether energy market of Germany to exchange information with electricity and solar market leaders who are adapting to change in this dynamic and controversial environment.We are inviting a select group of executives to meet with energy industry peers with the goal of returning with insights and practical knowledge that can be applied to planning and business decisions in the U.S. The trip will feature face-to-face meetings with thought leaders and decision-makers from the electric utility, transmission and renewable energy industries; government, trade and industry associations and market experts.

The Focus
The program will be interactive and will focus on questions including:

ƒWhat are the objectives of the Energy Transition, and have the selected policies been effective in meeting those objectives?

ƒWhat unanticipated impacts have emerged and how are they being addressed?

ƒWhat new business models can help electric utilities toadapt and grow in a market with significant distributed generation penetration and declining revenue?

ƒWhat tools are needed to cost-effectively shift from a traditional fuel mix to a greater renewable resource mix without sacrificing reliability?

ƒWho has developed a successful roadmap for energy company transition?
