Calling all leaders in the Power Generation sector-- we want to hear from you!

Energy Central's much-anticipated Special Issue Series continues with our focus now turning to what is really at the center of the electric power industry: Generation

Today and tomorrow's generation world is rapidly looking different from the years past, with new types of generation being constantly added to the grid, the continued growth of distributed generation, and digital tools creating new and interesting opportunities all the time. 

We are seeking contributions to our next Energy Central Hot Topic Special Issue Series: Power Generation - Realities & Trends from Renewables to Hydropower to Nuclear to Hydrogen and Beyond. 

Your access to Member Features is limited.

It can be hard for industry observers and stakeholders who aren't knee-deep in the generation side of things to understand what's going on, trying to separate reality from mirage, trends from noise. How much of the generation developments are hype, and which ones are the real deal? We invite you to share your in-depth insights for this special issue: 

  • What developments do you see taking hold of the power generation sector in utilities?
  • What are the primary market and policy drivers influencing the current wave of changes? 
  • What technologies are going to take over for declining sources of generation in the coming years? 
  • Are the innovations like small modular nuclear reactors and hydrogen power really going to shift the dynamic, or are they not all they're cracked up to be? 
  • How will increasingly available digital tools continue to change the generation world? 

We want to hear from you!
