About the Annual Spring Conference & Showcase... 

Our spring conference regularly attracts well over 100 energy industry executives, policy makers and members of the financial and legal communities. The Draft New York State Energy Plan and ongoing Energy Highway initiatives pose many potential changes that will affect the way business is done in New York. This year’s conference will focus on the integration of distributed energy resources and how that will impact system reliability, consumers, and competitive energy markets in this state.

The Showcase affords attendees, exhibitors, and sponsors alike the opportunity to engage a wide variety of individuals and groups, including representatives of businesses and organizations, public officials, members and future members of the Independent Power Producers of New York, Inc. 

The Showcase provides an excellent way to market your products and services, while maximizing your exposure to attendees. Over 250 people attend this event each year, and with more than 15 exhibitors on display; the opportunities clearly increase your corporate exposure!
