Net Zero Cities: Collaboration in electricity markets

LOVELAND — Colorado electrical utilities are joining forces like never before to match supply and demand across a broader region. Whether this will result in more stable prices — or availability — of electricity remains to be seen.

BizWest’s Net Zero Cities event, held in conjunction with Confluence — Colorado Water Conference, will examine that question in a panel discussion beginning 1:50 p.m. on July 26.

BizWest has combined its Confluence event with Net Zero Cities, a conference that explores key issues about climate change and sustainability. Confluence topics dominate the morning, with Net Zero Cities topics explored in the afternoon.

A panel titled “The Electricity Market” will be led by moderator Steven Conrad of the Colorado State University Systems Engineering. Participating will be David Ivan of Vestas Blades, Michael Rucker of Scout Energy, Brittany Speetles of the National Renewable Energy Laboratory and Joseph Taylor of Xcel Energy.

Event participants can sign up for the day at a rate (through July 21) of $75 or sign up for either of the two conferences individually for $49. The individual conference rate rises to $59 on July 22.

The event will be at the Embassy Suites by Hilton Loveland Hotel and Conference Center, 4705 Clydesdale Parkway in Loveland.Registration and additional conference information can be found here.
