Gee Strategies Group, LLC, Is Pleased to Offer
A Special Workshop:
FINANCING INFRASTRUCTURE NEEDS
Before the NARUC Summer Committee Meetings
Saturday, July 21, 2012, 2 – 5 p.m.
Hilton Portland and Executive Tower, Portland, Oregon
Electric utilities will need to invest approximately $2 trillion over the next two decades to continue to provide reliable and affordable service to customers. However, this amount excludes hundreds of billions of investment dollars they will require to comply with a wide range of environmental regulations. For this historic level of investment, utilities will need access to significant sources of capital at reasonable terms. Following the financial crisis of 2008 – 2009 and with a slowly improving economy, what is the current status of the financial markets, and what terms will markets require for capital access? What role does regulatory policy play in influencing those terms?
This Pre-Conference Workshop will provide an opportunity for Commissioners and Staff from state commissions to discuss with the financial community and electric utility industry these significant issues.
This Workshop is being held in conjunction with the NARUC Summer Committee Meetings. There is no charge, but seating and room capacity will be limited. Registration and seating will be on a first-come, first-served basis to all NARUC attendees. A wine and cheese reception will follow this Workshop.
REGISTRATION DEADLINE: JULY 2, 2012
