As we transition from uncertainty to a new normal,
S&P Global Market Intelligence is excited to announce the return of our annual 35th Power and Gas M&A Symposium in New York City on March 30th, 2022.

Our 2022 theme – Financing the Energy Transition will provide a framework of critical discussions to understand how the U.S. is turning words into action at COP26 - to achieve 80% reduction in carbon emissions by 2030 and 100% decarbonization by 2035 in the energy sector. While this aggressive national policy could put billions of dollars of coal and natural gas generation investment at risk, it could spur upward of $94 billion annually in clean energy investment to build the 630 GW of wind and 450 GW of solar needed by 2035 to meet this requirement, according to an S&P Global Market Intelligence analysis.

Join top industry-leading experts, utility executives and investment bankers as we discuss these critical issues and challenges.

Movement toward a national clean energy policy is steadily gaining momentum. The recent enactment of a bipartisan $1.2 trillion infrastructure program is a key first step in tackling climate change, with its emphasis on creating a national network of electric vehicle charging stations and investment in power infrastructure to help the U.S. meet Biden's goal of decarbonizing the power sector by 2035.

Identify the key themes impacting the financing of the energy transition, explore the opportunities and challenges of the $1.75 trillion Build Back Better Act, evaluate whether the U.S. has invested adequately in programs to reach 100% decarbonization and understand how FERC will evolve to play a pivotal role in the transformation of the energy sector.

Join us for an exhilarating experience powered by in-person networking sessions and evening cocktails designed to make the most of your day.

Hear from top decision makers as they examine the power space, executive strategy planning, market trends shaping asset portfolio shifts, obstacles and opportunities related to financial, regulatory, and market pressures.

Hear an expert panel of former FERC commissioners and senior executives share their perspectives and insights on major energy topics affecting stakeholders in the natural gas and electric power industries. Topics will include President Biden's clean energy agenda, EPA actions impacting generation owners and the M&A landscape, and FERC policy developments on transmission planning, return on equity incentives and wholesale power market reform.
Smart Electric Power Alliance (SEPA) is dedicated to help US electric power stakeholders address the most pressing issues in their transition to a clean and modern electric future and a carbon-free energy system by 2050. President and CEO, Julia Hamm will share critical insights on a range of challenges faced by her customers including:
  • Can non-utility generation providers build enough supply quickly to meet the increasingly aggressive state renewable portfolio standards and manage demands from their corporate customers who have set net-zero commitments?
  • Is the current push to remove natural gas as a heating source for new buildings going to expand beyond what we see today in local jurisdictions?
  • How to ensure that universal service and environmental justice are preserved without imposing a mandate on some entities to serve all comers?
  • How should regulators address legacy assets that are being retired before the end of their useful lives to make way for renewables?
  • How involved should the incumbent utilities be in deployment of public and private electric vehicle charging stations?
Hear from investment banking’s top dealmakers as they discuss the state of the power and utility sector, including the changing profiles of company ownership, market valuations, shareholder activism and engagement, and the impact of asset diversification on earnings and dividends.
In this session, S&P Global analysts will highlight potential obstacles to the smooth progress of the energy transition. Issues addressed include the impact of energy price volatility, timing of fleet turnover, and the new complexities of stranded investment. While disruptive technologies may sustain the momentum of the energy transition, policy challenges more likely than not will loom large.


Join executives and industry thought leaders to hear their views on the industry, where the next opportunities lie and their vision of the future.
