Join us for the biannual Energy Exchange event where we'll look at the recent wave of natural gas power plant development in Ohio.

Only a few years ago, there was very little merchant generation development in Ohio. Today, over 6,000 MW of new base load generation is being constructed or actively developed in the state, with the first facility slated to begin commercial operations in early 2017. The new plants represent a direct investment of over $6 billion in Ohio, driven entirely by the competitive market and not paid for by captive rate payers.

Our speakers, including Bricker & Eckler attorneys as well as power plant developers and representatives from the investment community, will provide an overview of this significant wave of investment and its impact. Topics include:

  • The factors making Ohio attractive for power plant developers
  • The economic impact of this development, including new pipeline infrastructure development and increased demand for Ohio's shale gas resources
  • The ongoing capacity market reform debate at PJM Interconnection
  • The conflict between this new private investment and the push by some of Ohio's electric utilities to "re-regulate" generation assets
  • The impact of new power plants on Ohio's broader economic development goals

Energy companies, policy makers, regulators, business owners and investors are invited to learn and discuss these and other current industry issues at this educational and networking event.
