Key PJM Electricity and Gas Market Catalysts

US natural gas supply, demand and exports have exploded, reaching record levels in 2018 — and FERC’s recent Calpine Order is threatening to turn PJM’s $9 billion/year capacity market on its head.

We help industry leaders understand these fast-paced developments and their impact on electricity and natural gas prices — this winter and beyond. Join us for up-to-the-minute forecasts, independent analysis and detailed insights.

Learn about how the future of PJM energy markets — and prices — hangs in the balance at this important energy conference, led by national power and gas expert Andy Weissman and held in an intimate classroom-style setting.
