Welcome to the fifth annual GCPA MISO South Regional Conference. Once again, this conference will focus on the ongoing challenges to MISO South, including southeast Texas and the Louisiana area, and how some of these regional perspectives stretch beyond state borders.  

We welcome back MISO President and CEO John Bear to provide his annual look at how things are progressing with market integration and what challenges remain. Following this keynote, we have a look at Louisiana industrial development. Are the petrochemical refineries still expanding, and what about LNG terminals? The next session will look at weather issues, from both the near term and long-term perspectives.  

After a New Orleans style buffet, the afternoon begins with a keynote update from Entergy Louisiana President Phillip May.  We then take a look at the future of the energy business. How are technology, consumer options and grid resiliency redefining relationships in the electric market place? After the networking break, a discussion of experts regarding the MISO market, issues that happened in April 2017 and market reforms. To wrap up the day, we investigate and discuss state and federal regulatory intersections.

What would a GCPA event be without networking? You will have the opportunity to meet with many of your peers in the electric power and industrial sector all day, but plan on staying for the reception after the presentations. Mix and mingle, make new contacts, re-establish former contacts and make post-event dinner plans to continue the conversations.

All of this is happening in New Orleans. We hope you will join us.
