CPV CEO Egan to Offer Blueprint for Repowering America's Coal Heartland with Clean Natural Gas

EnergyBiz Insider Webinar This Thursday 12:00 p.m. Eastern Time

Silver Spring, MD, April 18, 2011 - Join Competitive Power Ventures, Inc. (CPV) CEO Doug Egan as he participates in a debate about the Future of Coal Generation on Thursday, April 21, 2011 from 12:00 noon - 1:00 p.m. EDT. Energybiz Insider Leadership Series will host this opportunity by way of a free webinar.

Doug will discuss how natural gas-powered generation is expected to have the largest growth of all the fuel types over the next decade and how replacement of generation from coal-fired facilities with generation from natural-gas fired facilities has accelerated over the past decade. Egan will be discussing how companies like CPV can help the Midwest make the transition from legacy coal to natural gas.

Others on the panel include: Kenneth Green of the American Enterprise Institute and Mark Griffith from Black & Veatch's Power Market Analysis Practice. Ken Silverstein, editor-in-chief of EnergyBiz Insider will moderate.

CPV believes that energy companies can be agents of change for a cleaner world and a healthier economy. The company has embarked on an aggressive development program over the past decade to build clean, natural gas-powered generation facilities; both combined-cycle and peaking units. In addition, CPV has a wind power development portfolio of nearly 5,000 MW.

CPV views the deployment of these cutting-edge technologies as the bridges to our clean energy future in regions across the U.S. and Canada. In creating these projects, CPV balances the demands of system reliability, project economics and close working relationships with our project neighbors. CPV does not shy away from markets with rigorous permitting and operational criteria - frequently the markets with the greatest need for efficient, reliable state-of-the-art capacity.
