Lunch and Interviews with Keynote Speaker Zaid Ashai, CEO of Nexamp and Priscilla Lu, Partner & Managing Director of DWS - Building the Utility of the 21st Century
Date & Time
Tuesday, May 2, 2023, 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM
Zaid Ashai Nico Johnson Priscilla Lu

Join us during lunch for a compelling series of fireside chats on how renewable energy asset owners are spearheading the creation of the utility of the 21st century, and local developers and solar & storage industry professionals are in the perfect position to benefit. Distributed energy will be the new normal, and ESG metrics are driving adoption faster than anticipated.  But, with geopolitical pressures and supply constraints driving rapid adoption, it's time to rally together against the incumbents, who have mounted a lobby that will be difficult to confront with our current resources and approach. 

Hear an exclusive executive discussion on your role in building the 21st Century Utility, and the actions required for us to truly realize a world where everything is electrified and powered by clean electrons. Gain valuable insights on forming a narrative that captivates consumers and satisfies financial market concerns, and learn how to overcome the challenges posed by incumbents and skeptics.
