The landscape of the power sector is undergoing transformational changes that effect the entire energy industry. To help us navigate these developments, we have power/utility energy professionals Brandon Blevins (General Manager of GEMM7) and Keenan Austin (Sr Contracts Development Analyst w/ Xcel Energy). They will discuss the outlook of the utilities/power industry including: renewables as sources for electricity generation, job outlook, evolution of battery storage, and the impacts of tax equity. Also, Keenan will share XCEL’s goals for its renewable transition and the impact on CO and nationwide.  Lastly, Brandon and Keenan will discuss their experience as GEM (M.S. in Global Energy Management, CU Denver) students and how GEM equipped them with the business tools and energy acumen to accelerate their energy careers.

Thanks for sharing, Glenn. What do you think are the best types of actions for stakeholders to take in trying to stay educated and keep ahead of these transformational changes? Attending conferences with their peers? Conducting studies of their own? Investing in R&D?

Hi Matt,

That is a really interesting question. Attending conferences like PowerGen, URTec, ESNA Expo is a great way to keep informed and ahead of these changes. I would also recommend being involved in local professional organizations that connect the utility/power  community. They typically have some breakfast/lunch events with speakers that are industry experts that are informative and thought-provoking.
