Panel Discussions

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

In this panel, large commercial real estate owners will be discussing their perspectives on energy suppliers, energy brokers, their perceived benefits and 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:
“The Price is Right”: New Models in Pricing and Products

Unprecedented volatility has redefined the energy markets since Covid. This panel will discuss new pricing models and products that can protect the energy suppliers from extreme weather events. Customers expect more transparency and have become risk averse and less sticky. The best retailers are anticipating these needs and creating products and services to win customers and keep them retained.

Panel #4:
“Bitcoin Mining: Challenges and Opportunities for Retail Energy Suppliers”

ERCOT expects crypto miners to increase electricity demand by up to 6 gigawatts by mid-2023, more than enough to power every home in Houston. This demand will continue to grow as more miners come to Texas, some predictions say up to 17 gigawatts from new miners in the next few years. Miners argue that crypto will make the grid more resilient because operators can quickly scale back to give the system a break when demand spikes for a flexible load. This panel will look at both the challenges that crypto mining brings to Texas and the opportunities it brings for REPs and Wholesalers.

“Panel #5:
“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 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 breakout into groups to review the lessons learned and 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 #6:
“Whose Customer Is it?”–The Broker and Supplier Panel C

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 on 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 #7: 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 includes 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 going forward?
