  8. 8. Executive Roundtableexecutive Roundtable: Renewable energy from the utility PerspectiveTuesday, September 20 - 4:00 PM - 6:00 PMPower generation is now a mix of sources that includes both fossil and renewable fuels. the past fewyears have seen many changes in that mix through a variety of drivers, including regulation pricing, sit-ing and transmission constraints. Current events such as the congressional balance of power, nuclearchallenges in Japan, and turmoil in the Middle East make the business of operating a power generationcompany more challenging than ever.today, electric utilities must navigate through a complex landscape of regulations and keep a lookoutfor price volatility as they meet consumer energy demand of customers. aging power plants, a shiftinglandscape for fuel costs and public opinion add further complexity to this landscape. Competing priori-ties of state and federal mandates and the needs of shareholders and customers also contribute to thechallenge of creating a clear vision of the best path forward.Moderator: Bryan Hannegan, Vice President, Environment and Renewables, Electric Power Research institute (EPRi)Panelists: Diana Drysdale, Daniel Foley, Vice President - CEo, aCCiona Renewables, PsEg Energy north Energy holdings america Corp.
