Panel Discussions

Panel #1:
“Perspectives on Energy Suppliers by Large Commercial Real Estate Owners”

In this panel, large commercial real estate owners will discuss their perspectives on energy suppliers and energy brokers, their perceived benefits, and their critique of procuring energy through retailers. This is an opportunity to understand the mindsets and listen to the opinions of actual end users of the energy we market.

Panel #2:
“Renewable Gentailers and the Greenification of Retail Energy”

The push to reduce fossil fuel usage and increase renewables to get to net zero creates unique opportunities in the competitive energy market for innovation. This panel will discuss the evolution and revolution of renewable energy generators who are becoming retailers. We will also discuss the transition and ‘greenification’ and what this means for the competitive energy industry.

Panel #3:
“Consolidation in Retail Energy”

Consolidation is the buzzword right now in the competitive energy market. In 2023 the M&A trend is expected to continue.  With the current commodity price environment, record margins, and equity values, companies are looking to make deals without taking on too much debt. What can companies do to prepare to be purchased by the “Big Six”? What are the big acquirers looking for in a target? This panel will also explore the consolidation going on for the service providers in retail energy. Many of our own sponsors are products of spinoffs or mergers. Is this movement for more and more ‘non-organic growth’ healthy or does it threaten the future of energy choice? Will energy providers in the USA looks more like the Europe model? This panel will explore these trends and discuss further what is going on in our industry.

Panel #4:
“Two-Year Anniversary of a Crisis: What Have We Learned From ERCOT 2021?”

Winter Storm Uri wreaked havoc on Texas communities, claiming hundreds of lives and resulting in widespread and sustained blackouts in freezing temperatures. Suppliers and wholesalers lost hundreds of millions of dollars – with many fine firms forced to close. The retail energy industry will never be the same after that disaster, as we are all still reeling from its effects on pricing, volatility, PSA’s, the lack of grid reliability, the pressure for credit insurance, and many other issues. This session will break out into groups to review the lessons learned and the progress that has been made in the past two years. Have we improved energy resilience and grid modernization? Then the panelist will come back together to discuss what their group decided. A white paper will follow this mini think-tank.

“Panel #5:
“The Broker and Supplier Panel

There is a constant battle on who owns the customer. Is it the broker, the supplier, or the utility? Brokers and suppliers rarely see eye to eye and need to sit down more often to listen to the other perspective. This panel will have both suppliers and brokers do just that. Among other important issues, in this panel, we will debate who “owns” the customer relationship and why it should be one or the other.

Panel #6: CEO Round Table “Striving and Thriving During Turbulent Times”

Six top CEOs of energy retailers will discuss how they are surviving and thriving during turbulent times that include rising energy costs, an industry that has $16 billion in unpaid bills and moratoriums being lifted, the energy crisis that is hitting Europe, inflation as well having to be innovative in the push to get to net zero. What are they doing to stay ahead of it all, and how are they succeeding? Where do they see the future going? What should be the focus of all-sized retailers in the future?
