    OPIS Supply & Transportation Summit: Full agenda

    OPIS Supply & Transportation Summit Agenda
    7:30amContinental breakfast
    8:00amWelcome and opening remarks
    8:15amWhat the price action tells us? An exclusive technical forecast for oil prices in 2017 and beyond

    This year may well be a trader’s market in energy, currencies, equities, and even geo-politics where seasonal patterns could play a more pivotal role than usual. Walter Zimmerman, Chief Technical Analyst, United-ICAP, will detail why 2017 may deliver an environment where the petroleum complex searches for the upper edge of a wide swinging, multiyear trading range and suggest what previous years might be templates for the 2017 action. He’ll comment on the unprecedented volume and open interest that makes it difficult to differentiate from clear signal and cacophonous noise.

    9:00amEnergy trading challenges and opportunities

    Lots of companies exited the energy trading picture a few years ago, but others have expanded and prospered. Hartree Partners has found ways to distinguish between the signal and the noise in paper and physical trading for crude oil, refined products, and even gas liquids. Jason Lemme, Managing Director, Hartree Partners, will give attendees some insight into how individual traders and trading houses can maintain the necessary discipline in wildly volatile markets. He’ll look at how the increase in global financial participation has and will impact futures and options’ action, as well as what might lie in store for markets that now often see liquidity stacked in the near months.

    9:45amBreak
    10:00amThe RFS outlook under a new administration

    Twice this decade, Andy Lipow, President, Lipow Oil Associates, has accurately predicted RIN spikes that have gone on to be known as “RINsanity” in the fuels’ market. Perhaps no topic is more controversial in North American markets, thanks to the volatile prices for ethanol and biodiesel RINs, and the impact those price movements have for refiners, producers, and marketers. Now, there’s even serious talk about moving the point of compliance to the terminal, but advocates and opponents of that action have barely thought about the consequences. Mr. Lipow will give an exclusive forecast as to what might happen to RINs’ trading should EPA radically change or tweak policies, and elaborate on how refiners can stay ahead of an unpredictable EPA under President Trump.

    10:45amMaster limited partnerships: The new and improved future?

    After a short hiatus, it now seems certain that Master Limited Partnerships (MLPs) have a bright future as the Trump administration puts US infrastructure, particularly in the energy sector, back on the front burner. But a robust build-out or restructuring of new pipelines, storage facilities, and other elements of the oil, gas, and renewables’ segments is likely to coincide with a major overhaul of tax laws. Tim Fenn, Partner, Latham & Watkins, will take a look at the next stage in evolution for MLPs, and forecast what the landscape might look like for petroleum logistics. He’ll detail where consolidation makes sense and where shifting back to a normal corporate structure might be a better choice.

        Insight Dinner
        OPIS Supply & Transportation Dinner

        Open to all attendees, excluding media.

        Insight Dinner
        New eras for sustainability?

        The world once looked to developed economies to chart a path to global sustainability. In 2017 that path looks more complex, with contribution levels determined nationally by emerging and developed economies; new leaders and policies elected in 2016 and 2017; and an increasingly active business community of energy consumers, producers, and financial players. Do these changes put the goal of sustainability at risk? Will these multiple new eras of sustainability bring faster and more robust change?

        This session is closed to all media.

        Insight Dinner
        Resilience and cybersecurity: Should we be worried?

        Ensuring resilience of energy infrastructure is a growing strategic and policy priority for the energy industry and governments. Threats to critical infrastructure are on the rise, ranging from cyber to physical attacks. How resilient is the current energy infrastructure? What are the threats—and opportunities—of the rapid adoption of connected technologies and artificial intelligence? What initiatives and practices by the energy industry are being developed to safeguard infrastructure and ensure resilience?

        This session is closed to all media.

        Insight Dinner
        Technological innovation in energy sector—Evolution or revolution?


        Global transitions in the energy sector usually take decades, with fossil fuels continuing to dominate the energy mix. The recent pace of technological change has surprised the industry—from unconventional resources to the rapid growth of solar PV. Technological innovation will be key to decarbonizing the global energy supply while also helping the energy industry remain profitable and competitive. This session will ask where will the next surprise innovations come from?

        This session is closed to all media.

        Insight Dinner
        The global economic outlook: Pro-growth populism or protectionist populism

        The political earthquakes of 2016 have upended conventional thinking about the global economy, while ironically brightening the outlook. With the expectation that the Trump administration will enact sizable fiscal stimulus, optimism has increased about US and global growth with recent improvements in the US stock indexes, interest rates, and US dollar. While IHS Markit believes that the balance of these trends will be moderately positive for global growth, political and policy uncertainties have also increased.

        This session is closed to all media.

        Insight Dinner
        The race for knowledge: Risks, opportunities, and competitive advantage

        Knowledge management is increasingly central to the competitive strategies of energy companies, and a key driver of growth, cost optimization, and risk management objectives. Competitive advantage in the energy industry will be driven by the ability to access, harness, and utilize knowledge—both internal and external. Leveraging knowledge is becoming ever more critical and strategic. How will companies grapple with looming demographic trends such as loss of knowledge through retirement of baby boomers, information overload, inefficiencies such as stove piping of critical content, and protecting information assets?

        This session is closed to all media.

        Insight Dinner
        US energy policy: Post election?

        How will the US energy policy change under the Trump administration, and how will these changes influence global energy markets and geopolitics? This dinner will cover a range of questions from regulations and infrastructure to federal and global politics.

        This session is closed to all media.

          Breakfast Dialogue
          Africa upstream: Renewal ahead—or not?

          Sub-Saharan Africa has been a prolific region for industry-leading hydrocarbon discoveries, but with few projects being developed and low prices, exploration activity has sharply decreased. What strategies are upstream companies pursuing in response to the challenges they face? How are regional governments adjusting to today's reality in order to compete for tomorrow's investment?

          Breakfast Dialogue
          Canada’s changing energy policy landscape

          Since 2014, the Canadian energy policy landscape has undergone dramatic transitions. Commodity prices have fallen, new governments have come to power, and a significant advancement of Canadian climate policy has occurred. This session will speak to these dramatic changes and what this may mean for the future of the Canadian energy and, specifically, the oil sector.

          Strategic Dialogue
          Disclosing carbon asset risk: The shape of things to come?

          The Financial Stability Board’s Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosure (TCFD) issued its draft report in December 2016 and will submit its final report to the G-20 in June. TCFD recommends a framework of voluntary disclosures to quantify financial risks and opportunities arising from climate change. What would adoption of the framework mean for energy companies and financial institutions? Is it possible for companies in different sectors with widely differing business models to provide consistent, forward-looking, “decision-useful” information?

          Breakfast Dialogue
          Future of oil and gas development in Asia

          While Asian oil and gas demand has sharply increased over the last few years, the supply-side outlook is mixed. Local NOCs have decreased upstream investments because of low oil prices, while many IOCs have left Asia to focus on core assets closer to home. As oil price recovers, how will companies and countries respond to attract new investments and partnerships? What role will technology play?

          Breakfast Dialogue
          Latin America upstream: An exploration hot spot

          Despite record cuts in exploration spending, operators have continued to add critical new supply for Latin America: Large, new discoveries have been made in Guyana, Mexico, and Chile, and both Brazil’s presalt and Argentina’s Vaca Muerta are continuing to gain scale. Moreover, a new wave of access is expected, with Mexico and Brazil, in particular, offering large opportunities. Where will the next major discoveries be and how will companies expand the existing ones?

          Breakfast Dialogue
          North American refining: Evolving industry and regulations

          What does the future hold for the North American refining industry? The vantage point of refiners is key—specifically their location and market reach. How will global market conditions and domestic regulations impact market dynamics in the years ahead?

          Breakfast Dialogue
          The business of deep water in a new price era

          Deepwater reserves were expected to provide a significant source of production growth. However, since the oil price collapse, deepwater projects have been cancelled, delayed, and redesigned, impacting future reserves additions. Still, the deep water will receive substantial investment and new supplies will come onstream. How does this future deep water compare with the last 15 years? Deepwater leaders will discuss the transformation of the deepwater portfolio, the sustainability of new models, the growth outlook, and the competitor landscape.

          Breakfast Dialogue
          The new geopolitics of oil: OPEC and non-OPEC

          Non-OPEC participation was critical to sealing the supply agreement between OPEC members and a number of non-OPEC countries, particularly Russia. Was this a one-off agreement or a signpost for new, enduring dynamics between key OPEC and non-OPEC countries?

          Financing the upstream: Recapitalization of upstream sector

          Access to capital was an essential driver of the great revival of US oil production. In today's market, is access to capital changing? Who will provide the capital for upstream investment in the years ahead?

            Strategic Dialogue
            Global refining: Pressures and opportunities

            Global oil demand has been buoyant because of lower prices. But big questions loom that will shape the fortunes of the refining industry in the years ahead. In addition to economic uncertainty, the future use of oil in transport is a big question. But there are also opportunities such as the upcoming change in bunker fuel specifications. What dynamics will influence success for refiners around the world?

            Strategic Dialogue
            International oil company strategies: Positioning for the future

            IOCs have focused relentlessly on reconfiguring portfolios to be competitive in a lower-for-longer price environment. In some cases, IOCs have made wholesale changes in geographic focus, targeted asset types, and proffered return metrics and capital strategies. Many are also testing investments against carbon taxes at different levels. How much of the cost reduction is sustainable? How have portfolios changed? Where can larger E&P companies find scale? Are the new business models sustainable?

            Strategic Dialogue
            National oil company strategies: Positioning for the future

            After two years of significant price decline, loss of revenue, and cost cutting, NOCs are now reevaluating their strategies for the medium to long term. Although price outlook is bullish after the OPEC agreement, there are significant challenges for the future, including lack of capital investments, competition for customers, oversupply in LNG/gas markets, and uncertainty for oil demand. How will NOCs respond to these challenges? Where do they see opportunities? What are the avenues for partnerships between IOCs and NOCs?

            Strategic Dialogue
            Oil price cycles: What are they and where are we now?

            Although the driving force of oil cycles is the same—the reaction of price to demand and supply—the form and timing of the reaction differs with each cycle. But it would be notable from a historical perspective if the current era of abundant supply lasted only several years. The average duration of the past two eras of surplus is 15 years. However, market conditions point to the possibility of an end to the current cycle in the next several years. Will this be a relatively short era of surplus—or not?

              Rethinking sanctions in the new era

              Do sanctions work as a diplomatic tool? US and European energy and financial sanctions on Iran contributed to an international agreement with Iran to restrain its nuclear program, but US discord over that deal may lead to its dissolution. Could a new deal or sanctions be achieved with international consensus? Alternatively, US and European sanctions on Russia for its actions in Ukraine have not succeeded in changing Russia’s policies nor decreased its oil production. Have these sanctions failed? How might the Trump administration affect policy and US and European energy sanctions toward Russia and Iran?

              Service company strategies: Positioning for the future

              The extreme focus of IOCs and NOCs on reducing costs, simplifying designs, and improving operating efficiency has forced service sector companies to rethink their own business models. Many sectors face considerable overcapacity that must be rationalized; many are engaged in mergers and alliances; and others view the industry's structural changes as an opportunity to increase their energy footprint. What are service companies doing to increase competitiveness? Which changes are sustainable? What will the competitive landscape look like in five years?

              The Permian phoenix: Rising again

              The Permian Basin is the world’s original “super basin.” It has produced billions of barrels of oil over its nearly 100 years. Now, after decades in decline, new technologies have rejuvenated the basin, but how far can it run? And how fast? This session explores the basin’s potential from a number of angles—geologic, competitive, technological, and infrastructure—to consider when thinking about its oil and gas future to 2020.

              Upstream performance trends: Enhancing operational efficiency

              Upstream projects and assets struggling to meet economic hurdles in today’s low price environment are, in many cases, turning to lower supply chain costs, leaner designs, and new development approaches to improve their viability. What role can technology play in enabling these new design concepts and operating models, what impact are they having on industry capital and operating efficiency today, and will these effects be sustained as prices start to rise?

                Ride hailing and driverless technology: Oil’s friend or foe?

                Ride hailing services like Uber, Didi, and Lyft are providing millions of new rides per day. This new “mobility as a service” market coupled with driverless technology could significantly impact the whole automotive ecosystem, and particularly oil demand. Will these new miles be gasoline or electric? How personal mobility changes and what powers this change will be critical to future oil and power demand.

                      Border adjustment tax: Implications for oil prices and trade

                      The House Republican plan would transform the corporate income tax into a destination-based cash flow tax – also called a border adjustment tax (BAT) – that exempts the full value of exports but includes the full value of imports in the tax base. What are the potential price and trade impacts of the BAT on crude oil, refined products and other traded energy commodities? What are other potential consequences including from the resulting increase in the US dollar?

                        Projections for global liquids supply over the next five to ten years are being changed by multiple factors, including new investment deferrals, changes in base production decline rates, new upstream openings, and fiscal term adjustments. The need to forecast global liquids production in the near term to longer term, and accurately label and understand the underlying strategic assumptions, both below- and aboveground, is more critical than ever. IHS Markit experts will discuss our assumptions, methodologies, and outlook for key countries.

                        With most Latin American countries experiencing declining liquids production, the opening of several upstream sectors to exploration is accompanied by changes to the competitive landscape. For the first time in decades, Latin American NOCs are not driving E&P. With aboveground risk still a significant obstacle to increasing foreign direct investment, how will regional governments and IOCs, whether partnered with regional NOCs or not, manage risk? What is the 10-year forecast for E&P activity and growth? Do regional NOCs have the financial ability to drive overall investment and exploration activity?

                        Despite an expected additional modest price recovery in 2017, producer governments will remain under significant fiscal pressure in 2017, prompting further adjustments to fiscal and other E&P terms and conditions. These governments will also face competition from frontier countries now positioning themselves to capture new investment spending.

                          Super basins outside the United States

                          The future of oil supply could be transformed if a number of “super basins” such as the US Permian were fully exploited around the world. There are significant challenges to achieving these sorts of results, chiefly aboveground risks and their mitigation. IHS Markit has identified super basins as those having already produced at least 5 billion boe with another 5 billion boe remaining, with multiple stacked plays, typically more than one source rock, available service sector, and infrastructure. We have identified 25 such global basins, plus an additional 24 “Tier Two” basins. IHS Markit experts will discuss methodology and results, and the implications for future investment.

                          The great cost reset: The new competitive dynamic in US unconventionals, global deep water, and the Middle East

                          In the past two years, the oil and gas industry has made drastic changes to reset the cost structure to be competitive in a lower oil price world. Some of the changes are sustainable, others are not. The IHS Markit Costs and Technology team looks at the new competitive dynamic, costs, among the major sources of supply growth—the US onshore, deep water, and the Middle East—which will have important portfolio allocation implications going forward.

                          Upstream capital strategies in the wake of the reset

                          After enduring shock and paralysis caused by the dramatic and sustained drop in commodity prices, upstream companies are now shifting their focus toward the pursuit of growth. However, with limited economic opportunities at this new price paradigm, competition for quality assets will be intense. Having come out of this down cycle with historically high levels of debt, companies will be challenged to execute a winning strategy and must counterbalance their asset strategy with their capital strategy. During this session, companies and transactions experts will discuss the challenges facing Independents, IOCs, and NOCs and their emerging strategies, as well as which companies are in position to execute.

                          Ministerial dialogue: Prospects for the Levant Basin
                          A wide-ranging discussion with Minister Steinitz on the changing regional dynamics and Israel’s emerging role as a natural gas producer. Key topics include natural gas in the Levant: the changing dynamics and Israel’s emerging role; new policies and investment opportunities in Israel's Exclusive Economic Zone in the Mediterranean Sea; and the shifting calculus of Middle Eastern geopolitics.

                          After the Permian: What’s next for North America?

                          The Permian Basin is a magnet for E&P risk capital because of its cost reduction, performance enhancement, and robust overall production outlook. But with the cost of quality acreage climbing, industry players are looking beyond the Permian.

                          Asian gas markets: Reforms, new players, and implications for LNG

                          As the global gas market enters a period of oversupply, the biggest buyers in Asia are adjusting their purchasing strategies. In addition to more aggressive price negotiations, many utilities that have been long-term customers of various national importers (e.g., NOCs) are looking to enter the global market and procure their own gas, creating new dynamics in a fast-changing market. How will domestic market reforms in areas such as infrastructure access and pricing impact future LNG procurement?

                            Does pricing carbon have a future

                            Despite the theoretical case for pricing CO2 emissions, carbon pricing regimes have not delivered strong results in practice. Going forward, China and Canada plan more use of carbon pricing, while the EU may be losing faith in the ETS and the future of US regional systems are also in question. What is the outlook for more effective pricing regimes and how might carbon pricing incentivize efficiency and new technology?

                            Breakfast Dialogue
                            The promise and challenge of growing LNG demand in a period of oversupply

                            LNG market fundamentals point to a sustained period of looseness in the coming years due to large capacity additions, coupled with demand weakness from many existing markets. However, a significant number of countries do not import—nor have plans to import—LNG. What key risks and factors need to be addressed to bring more of these countries into the LNG market? How can project developers actively support their development?

                            Ihs Markit Expert Discussion
                            LNG cost and innovation

                            An impending global LNG oversupply will lead to an ever-competitive market. New project developments will require a cost advantage in order to remain competitive against other fuels and other gas supplies. Can LNG survive? This session will explore some of the innovative solutions that have been proposed—from mini- and small-scale, traditional cost-control to novel approaches to liquefaction—their advantages, disadvantages, and likelihood of transforming the industry.

                            Breakfast Dialogue
                            North American gas: Going oily and arriving late

                            Low natural gas prices have largely restricted North American production growth to Appalachia and associated gas. Low oil prices subsequently reduced associated gas production. Concurrently, delays to pipeline infrastructure expansions out of Appalachia have driven a tighter and more volatile natural gas market. With oil activity disconnected from gas prices and pipeline project in-service dates increasingly uncertain, how do gas buyers, sellers, and transporters manage through a less predictable and increasingly volatile market?

                            Breakfast Dialogue
                            Solving Southern Cone’s natural gas trade puzzle

                            Natural gas is a growing component of Southern Cone’s energy mix. Significant and diverse supplies around the region remain constantly challenged with meeting rising demand. Recent changes in the regional energy landscape bring new challenges, requiring new strategies from countries and market participants. What is ahead for the regional gas markets following recent changes in Argentina and Brazil? What are the opportunities from the changing regional landscape? What role will LNG play and what are the signposts for future changes?

                            Breakfast Dialogue
                            Supplying gas to Europe: Capitalizing on a growing, flexible market

                            Europe is a major traded gas market with a growing requirement for imports, but where will these imports come from? Russia will remain a major supplier and LNG supply will grow, but will there be space to absorb the coming surge in LNG supply? How will Russian gas be transported to Europe? What is the potential for new suppliers to enter the market?

                            Strategic Dialogue
                            The future of exploration

                            IHS Markit forecasts minimal growth in global exploration spending through 2020. While new discoveries outside onshore North America have been in decline since 2012, there are exploration “hot spots” and critical wells that will define the potential for new areas. As some companies pull back from conventional exploration, others see it as an opportunity. How are exploration strategies changing in the evolving business environment?

                            Economic reform in the Middle East: Opportunities and challenges

                            As oil and gas producers in the Middle East assess products for major shifts in demand, what are their strategies for economic diversification, and what are the prospects for success? How critical are changes in domestic policies to reflect global energy prices, incentivize efficiency measures, and align national spending patterns with resource constraints? What are the risks for political unrest? Do regional wars and conflicts constrain the capacity of nations to manage their own domestic reforms?

                            Follow the money: How do coal producers meet demand?

                            What role will coal play in the global energy and steel production mix of the future? Recent events have driven renewed interest in the coal industry, highlighted by a wave of IPOs. Yet financing a coal project in today's environment is deeply complex and challenging. Markets remain volatile, highlighted by the recent unexpected dramatic price increases for premium coal. Meanwhile, removing regulatory constraints on coal is high on the agenda for the new Trump administration. What are the prospects ahead for coal markets, investment, and industry strategies?

                            India: The emerging energy powerhouse?

                            India is one of the fastest growing economies in the world. Energy is key to this growth continuing. With aspirations to reduce dependence on imported oil and gas, provide 24/7 power to every citizen, and reduce carbon emissions, the Modi government is reducing bureaucracy and incentivizing international private investments in energy infrastructure. This panel will examine the entire value chain and ask what polices are needed to accelerate energy infrastructure investments. Can gas and renewables play a bigger role in India’s energy mix? Where can international companies invest and earn competitive returns?

                            Strategic Dialogue
                            Is a global liquids supply gap looming?

                            In 2013–16 global exploration spend fell by over 60%, while new development projects were cancelled and delayed. While US activity is rising again in 2017, many regions anticipate lower investment. The lack of investment and projected shortfalls may result in lower production outlooks post-2020. What is the potential for a global liquids supply gap or a resurgence of US unconventionals, continued growth in Middle East production, and the resilience of liquids supplies from Russia and other locales?

                            Strategic Dialogue
                            New gas supplies

                            In the second half of this decade, the global gas market is expanding significantly as a new wave of supply comes online: indigenous production, pipeline gas, and most notably LNG. Beyond this, many more projects are competing to supply new gas to meet expectations of rising long-term demand. However, there are a number of challenges to bringing these developments to FID, including oversupply concerns and financing challenges. This panel will explore the drivers behind successfully delivering major new international gas projects.

                            North American gas demand: Go abroad or go home?

                            North American gas supplies remain plentiful, and market development efforts remains critical in the face of competition from renewables in the power sector, potential of cyclical weakness in export markets, and longer-term efforts to limit carbon emissions from all sources. This panel will explore the prospects for demand development, and how companies are addressing these challenges.

                            Strategic Dialogue
                            Prospects for LNG hubs

                            The Atlantic traded gas hubs took about 20 years to have sufficient liquidity and depth to be a price reference point for gas and LNG traded over various forward time horizons. However, a truly liquid traded gas or LNG hub in Asia has yet to be established that would create a truly global gas market. This session explores current initiatives for LNG hubs in Asia and elsewhere and asks, Is it possible to establish a truly global gas market?

                            The role of gas in the low-carbon transition

                            Gas once seemed the bridge fuel of choice. But concerns about methane emissions, pipeline leaks, fracking, and infrastructure lock-in have brought regulation and mistrust. What should be the role of gas in the future energy mix, and what are the key enablers and constraints?

                            Strategic Dialogue
                            Upstream and infrastructure finance

                            The current low oil and gas prices have introduced new financing challenges for oil and gas upstream and midstream projects while potentially creating new opportunities. Although domestic US gas prices rose somewhat in 2016, they remain low and LNG oversupply concerns affect prospective liquefaction projects globally. With gas capex budgets being slashed and the sovereign financing capability of key gas-producing countries being reduced, this low-price environment may allow investors to develop strategies that evolve to finance tomorrow's needs and take on higher levels of risk.

                              Coal’s evolving role in Asia’s power future

                              Economic development and expanding energy access are driving Asian power demand, while energy affordability remains paramount to fuel choices, causing many Asian countries to rely on coal-fired power additions to boost supply. Some markets that traditionally relied on natural gas or hydro face challenges ramping up these fuels, creating a large opening for coal in countries such as Vietnam, the Philippines, and Pakistan. Other coal-dependent markets, such as India, Indonesia, Malaysia, and China, continue to see coal as a critical fuel. What are the future drivers and challenges for coal use in power?

                              Breakfast Dialogue
                              European power markets: The market design and climate imperative

                              Europe has transitioned further toward a lower carbon future than other developed economies. The power sector has seen the greatest transformation, adding over 130 GW of renewables and severely challenging the profitability of thermal assets. A number of governments are now implementing different forms of capacity support to ensure the security of power supply. Europe is also considering the options to meet the 2030 targets defined in 2015, but what are the options for Europe’s new power market design? What design is best suited to the low demand, high renewable power market that is developing in Europe? What future investment will be required to meet Europe’s climate goals and ensure security of supply?

                              Breakfast Dialogue
                              The future of solar

                              Solar PV will account for nearly half of the over 3,000 GW of new gross renewables capacity to be added by 2040. With costs declining at a faster pace than other competing generation sources, solar PV emerges as a key technology for utility scale, distributed generation, self-consumption, and off-grid electrification. What opportunities will growth of solar PV will bring to developers, owners, and consumers?

                              Breakfast Dialogue
                              The new panorama of Latin America power

                              Traditionally dependent on large hydro and thermal backup, Latin America has begun to diversify its generation mix. Renewables, including wind and solar, are becoming dominant in auctions across the region. Meanwhile fewer large hydro sites and their difficult development conditions mean the need for more flexible backup is becoming increasingly dire. New sources for dispatchable thermal, including shale, LNG, and offshore production, will play a key role. How will the region balance its vast potential for renewables with the need for additional stability and flexibility for its power grid?

                                Distributed resources: Generation, demand-side flexibility, and storage

                                Distributed energy resources (DERs)—including solar, battery storage, and load management technology—have been heralded as an inexorable evolution of the power grid, and a range of companies are experimenting with new business models built around these options. We are seeing the birth of a new wave of energy services companies (ESCOs) that have evolved substantially since the decades-old ESCO model. Still, most DER deployment remains dependent on policy support, such as net energy metering, leading to intensifying political debates over cost and value. What are the policy, technology, and economic factors shaping the distributed energy landscape?

                                The track record of building competitive electric generating plants involves financial losses and bankruptcy reorganizations. Over the past 18 months, competitive generators have lost half of their market value while power plants have been selling at a 50% discount to replacement costs. Yet, capital continues to flow into these businesses. Will the future be different based upon lessons learned, or is the winner’s curse an ongoing characteristic of the competitive generation business?

                                  Future of the global renewables market

                                  Renewables are projected to be the fastest growing source of new power generating capacity through 2040, accounting for half of the net new generation capacity added globally. This growth will be driven by continued policy support at a global level and technology cost reductions resulting in an increasingly distributed opportunity. Which markets offer the greatest growth opportunities? What will be the role of distributed generation and off-grid electrification in different markets? How will players capture an increasingly atomized opportunity?

                                  The 2016 price boom: Does this change the outlook for global coal?

                                  The international steam coal market’s changing dynamics are moving closer to being in a position of rebalancing with higher prices. This session will focus on 2016’s high prices and how the market responded. What conclusions can be drawn about the real proximity of a balanced market and on the market’s ability to respond to it when it comes?

                                  Greater penetration of electric vehicles is transforming traditional paradigms for managing power demand. Because electric vehicles are mobile and have the ability to draw and inject power into the grid, utilities are being forced to rethink how they deliver power and the commercial mechanisms available to recover their costs. How will these technologies reshape the city of the future?

                                        The North American shale gas resource base continues to expand and drop in cost. Shale Gas Reloaded, IHS Markit Energy's reassessment of the North American resource base, concludes that 1,400 Tcf of natural gas is recoverable at a breakeven Henry Hub price of $4/MMBtu or less. This represents a 66% increase from our 2010 estimate that more than 900 Tcf could be produced at a $4/MMBtu breakeven price, after accounting for the 176 Tcf of gas produced during 2010‒15. What are the long-term producer and consumer implications for North American and global natural gas markets?
