Part 1: The Future of the Energy Market, The Challenges Stakeholders Face and How it Affects Their Interest  / The Retail Energy Supplier Perspective

The broad range of players – utilities, independent generators (both large scale and small scale; traditional utility-grade and distributed facilities), retailers, energy management businesses  – all need to come together to create the framework of the energy supply chain of the future. Failure to do so would play into the hands of monopolistic practices and inhibit growth and innovation.

In light of several policy initiatives, the retail energy markets are under attack. In order to survive the retail energy providers need to adapt by introducing innovative products and services. The webinar will address:  

  • How do you see the framework of the energy supply chain of the future?
  • How has COVID-19 changed the retail energy business, and what will companies need to thrive in the “new normal”?
  • Are there areas of vulnerability that will need to be addressed and by whom?
  • How should retail energy providers prepare for the consumer of the future? What does that new business model look like?

  • Jim Steffes, EVP Corporate Affairs for Direct Energy
  • Kevin Boudreaux, VP Emerging Technologies for MP2 Shell
  • Bill Kinneary, President for NEM
  • Upendra Chivukula, Commissioner at NJ Board of Public Utilities
