More power plants have been closing or announcing their closure in recent years, largely as a result of the economics created by regional markets and competitive pricing mechanisms. These power plant closings–and the attendant plans to repower the site and replace lost capacity–raise a number of legal and practical issues.

Please join us for an all-day roundtable where utilities, developers, and investors in the energy industry meet to discuss key issues and best practices for shutting down and repowering power projects.
