Critical Human Infrastructure: Financing and Current Trends
The next New York Power Industry Briefing will be held on Thursday, February 7th. The session will be held with registration beginning at 4:30, presentations from 5 - 6:30, and a networking reception from 6:30 - 8 pm. Our speakers will address the pressing issue around the ability to finance global infrastructure and discuss the current trends affecting the electric, water and gas industries.
Ability to Finance Infrastructure
By the year 2030, it is estimated that the world's middle class population will grow from the present 2 billion to over 5 billion. That growth will inevitably and dramatically create demand for improved and expanded water, power, transportation, and telecommunications infrastructure. Much of the demand is expected to come from countries and regions without an established credit track record. As Chairman, President and CEO of Black & Veatch, a global consulting and infrastructure construction company, Len Rodman will offer his perspective on the outlook for basic and advanced infrastructure development in the US and abroad, and the implications for global markets and project financing.
Major Trends in the Energy, Water and Gas Industries
From aging infrastructure to regulatory uncertainty to the natural gas revolution, Black & Veatch clients identified the key issues and trends that are shaping the future of critical human infrastructure. Black & Veatch Management Consulting Division President, John Chevrette, will discuss the results and analysis of our 2012 energy, water and gas industry reports. Black & Veatch offers quarterly updates on the hottest topical issues facing utilities through its Power Industry Briefing series of networking events.
