The State of the U.S. Energy Transition: Opportunities and Headwinds

Key topics will include:

  • Topic 1
  • Topic 2
  • Topic 3

The passage of the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) in August 2022 heralded a boom in the US energy sector. 2023 was a record-breaking year for clean energy deployment in North America, with more wind, solar, and batteries installed than ever before and increased support for technologies like hydrogen, CCS, geothermal, and small modular reactors.  

Despite massive tailwinds, however, significant challenges remain for the sector. Interconnection queues are bloated, investment in transmission is lagging, inflation remains high, and offshore wind projects have struggled to get off the ground. Meanwhile, a combination of load growth from data centers and a challenging investment climate for new thermal has led to questions around reliability in some regions.  

The Aurora Energy Transition Forum 2024 will bring together the biggest utilities, policy makers, project developers, investors, and other main players from across the energy space in North America to discuss the status quo of the energy transition and the steps moving forward. The event will address the impact of the IRA two years on, and will focus on energy investment, battery storage economics, and ensuring capacity adequacy through the energy transition.  

Attend the event to gain crucial insights from our Aurora experts and our distinguished speakers including:  

  • Andrew Flanagan, CEO, RWE US
  • Elliott Mainzer, President & CEO, California ISO
  • Gordon van Welie, President & CEO, ISO New England
  • Mary Anne Brelinsky, President & CCO, Alpha Generation
  • Pablo Vegas, President & CEO, ERCOT
  • Pat Wood III, CEO, Hunt Energy Network
  • Sandhya Ganapathy, CEO, EDP Renewables North America
  • Thad Hill, CEO, Calpine

Following the success of the Aurora Spring Forum in the UK, the Energy Transition Forum aims to become the leading annual gathering of North America’s energy sector and will provide a unique opportunity to meet and interact with the most senior representatives in the energy sector. Join us for an insightful day of debates and discussions as well as plenty of networking opportunities, including a drinks reception and a dinner in the evening.
