Chris Reeder will moderate, "Understanding Wind Development & Repower Opportunities in Today’s Project Execution Landscape," at Infocast’s Texas Clean Energy Summit on Wednesday, August 30, 2023.

TX is the largest wind energy producer in the US, but changing market design and shifting market forces have upended many assumptions for wind in the Lone Star State. The IRA, inflation, equipment, and construction delays, capital cost increases, local siting issues, and congestion changes from LEUs have affected projects in unpredictable ways, while getting wind energy from generation to load remains an eternal question. This panel will explore key trends shaping the wind project execution landscape, analyze the new opportunities and challenges, and strategize lessons learned moving forward.

  • 10 years of tax certainty: How are the IRA’s tax credits and provisions influencing TX wind? How is the IRA changing new project development assumptions? What about repower?
  • How is load growth affecting the wind market? Is congestion and basis risk more or less predictable than in previous years, and would offshore wind completely change the game? 
  • Are prices, inflation, and supply chain issues affecting corporate offtake agreements, and what are the risks offtakers are willing to take on today?
  • What is happening with existing wind projects that suffered economic hardships from Uri?
  • What has the past year taught the industry, and how will it continue to evolve?
