The Future for German Power Generation Projects

Start Date:30 Nov 11 End Date:01 Dec 11

In light of the Japanese nuclear incident at Fukushima, the German government announced the intention to phase out nuclear power generation by 2022. Although nuclear power has always been a divisive method of power generation in Germany before March's moratorium, nuclear accounted for 23% of Germany's supply and leaves an energy gap to be filled.

With the relatively small volume of energy currently generated by renewables, Germany will need to consider new gas and coal power projects with little time for delay in agreeing and beginning work on new projects. However, as with any major infrastructure project, new coal or gas plant will present a number of hurdles which industry leaders will need to overcome in order to meet the need for energy whilst complying with emissions guidelines and an ever-evolving political landscape.

This essential industry conference will shed light on the emerging strategies and visions regarding the role conventional power generation will play in the future energy mix in Germany. The event will explore opportunities and highlight challenges, from a political, technological, financial and legal perspective. Furthermore our expert faculty will identify specific current and future projects which offer concrete business opportunities for companies of varying categories in the short or medium term.

The timing of the conference could not be more important, as the next 12 months will represent the catalyst for future projects to be proposed, challenges identified and the key relationships to be built up.

This high-level event is aimed at senior power plant operators, members of the supply chain, consultants and their advisors. Hear from regulators, decision makers and major players in the power generation field on the current and future opportunities and how these will be approached.

Key sessions will address:
• How the German government will contribute to future non-nuclear projects
• The short and medium-term future for new build gas power plants
• The "coal revival" – opportunities and challenges
• The impact of the need to import natural gas to fill the gap
• Assessing the effect of the end of nuclear on Germany's power plant link up and transmission system grids
