Joseph Kelliher, Executive Vice President of NextEra Energy (and former FERC chairman), was the opening keynote speaker on November 20; while James Robb, President & CEO of NERC, was the concluding keynote speaker on November 21. Among the other speakers were: David Hang of Orsted U.S. Offshore Wind; Karen Iampen of Repsol; James Judge of Eversource; Leonard Kula of the Ontario IESO; Eric Martel of Hydro-Quebec; Ian Robertson of Algonquin Power & Utilities Corp.; James Torgerson of Avangrid; Elizabeth Turnbull Henry of the Environmental League of Massachusetts; Gordon van Welie of ISO-NE; Rudy Wynter of National Grid; and many more.
