NIPPC Annual Meeting

September 14+15, 2020

Alderbrook is going virtual!

Due to the ongoing restrictions created by the COVID-19 situation, NIPPC has made the hard decision to change our Alderbrook conference to an online meeting for 2020.

Company travel bans, people’s notable discomfort with gathering in groups and Washington State’s scaling back of it’s reopening plan have led us to the inevitable conclusion that it will not be possible to meet in person this year.

But NIPPC still promises to bring you as much of the program as possible, over two sessions on the mornings of September 14 and 15, including four panel discussions, three keynote addresses and networking opportunities.

If you have already registered for the conference, you don’t need to do anything: we will convert your registration to the virtual event and refund you the difference.

If you have been waiting to register, please go ahead and sign up soon, using the link below.

Conference Program

Now in our 17th year, the NIPPC Annual Meeting is the Northwest’s premier energy policy conference, bringing together key players from across the energy industry to debate the policy issues that matter most.

The power industry is facing unprecedented change. NIPPC acts as a facilitator and a problem solver, with a clear voice on ongoing competitive power issues, as well as the larger structural changes happening in the market.

Our annual conference brings all of this together, as we spend two days creatively exploring the issues facing the power sector.

Register today and join in the conversation with the shapers of national and regional energy policy including:

    • Elliot Mainzer, Administrator, Bonneville Power Administration
    • Richard Glick, Commissioner, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission
    • Steven Wellner, Director, OEMR Division of Electric Power Regulation-West, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission
    • Mark Rothleder, Vice President, Market Policy and Performance, California Independent System Operator

Networking Opportunities

NIPPC is proud of the fact that the value of our conference is as much in the networking & socializing as it is in the formal program. While it will be hard to recreate that online, NIPPC is committed to providing members and colleagues with opportunities to gather less formally during our event.  See the Schedule page for more details.
