NEW YORK, January 05, 2024 – Evercore (NYSE: EVR) will host its 10th annual Utility CEO Conference in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, January 11-12, 2024.
Evercore’s annual Utility CEO Retreat One-on-One Conference brings together 30 leading companies spearheading the multidecade-long electrification of the U.S. economy. The event provides unique access to the most influential U.S.-focused utilities, the decision makers driving the nation’s energy transition through solar, wind, nuclear and energy storage.
Evercore ISI Director of Research Marc Harris said, “Decarbonization of the U.S. economy is expected to translate into trillions of dollars in investment opportunity through 2050. Sustainable energy and the broader energy transition is a top priority for Evercore, and as utilities will be core to this transition, we are delighted to host this event and support critical dialogue between companies and their investors. We have 30 companies attending this year, with the majority represented by their CEOs.”
“Renewable generation is projected to increase significantly from ~300 GW currently to over 3,500 GW by 2050,” said Durgesh Chopra, Evercore ISI Managing Director, Power & Utilities. “That, along with the need for grid resiliency, ‘smart grid’ and electric vehicle-related spending should drive at least $100 billion of transmission and distribution investment per year. In addition, U.S. data center-driven electric load is expected to more than double to 35 GW by 2030, when compared to 2022 levels. We are delighted to host DigitalBridge CEO Marc Ganzi as our keynote speaker to discuss the soaring demand from data centers.”
