POWERGEN International, the world’s largest power generation event, is pleased to announce its 2022 theme of Destination 2050 as well as partnerships with the California Energy Storage Alliance (CESA), Electrical Generating Systems Association (EGSA), Epicenter, and Green Hydrogen Coalition (GHC) for its 2022 event taking place January 26-28 in Dallas, Texas. For the first time, POWERGEN International will be co-located with DISTRIBUTECH International, the leading annual transmission and distribution event.
“It’s clear that the future electricity generation mix is changing, but exactly how it will look is still unclear. Electricity industry executives are faced with the monumental task of balancing today’s energy needs while moving to tomorrow’s goal of net zero carbon emissions. Electric utilities and power generators must keep current assets running while integrating to the future generation mix of renewables, energy storage and more,” said Teresa Hansen, VP of Content for Clarion Energy. “This year’s Destination 2050 Conference Program will feature leaders from electric utilities and power generation companies who will present their strategies on turning aspirations into reality.”
The partnership with GHC will enhance the event’s coverage of Hydrogen and Decarbonization while the partnerships with CESA and EGSA will enhance coverage of energy storage and on-site power, all coming together to strengthen the generation mix to support the future of electricity. In addition, Epicenter will support the Initiate program, which fosters innovation from energy start-ups around the world. POWERGEN will offer member companies exposure to a broad range of energy education, including participation in the event’s content program through thought leadership, speaking opportunities and peer-to-peer discussion platforms. EGSA will also host a pavilion on the show floor featuring vendors and suppliers involved in on-site power.
“Power utilities are getting it from both sides and are under no illusion that the journey to a cleaner 2050 will be easy. They must ensure power resiliency and low cost and respond to both public and government demand
