Fall Reliability and Security Summit

September 16 - September 18

Formerly known as the Fall Workshop, the 2024 Fall Reliability and Security Summit will take place Sept. 16-18, 2024, in Indianapolis.

We’ll dive into the intersection of energy policy with reliability and security, as we navigate the challenges of a changing generation mix. We’ll have speakers from state government, including an energy policy legislator panel featuring:

  • Maryland State Sen. Brian Feldman
  • Delaware State Sen. Stephanie Hansen
  • Indiana State Sen. Eric Koch
  • Ohio State Rep. Dick Stein

Coordination, collaboration, and cooperation are critical to this great energy transition, and we will also have speakers from industry, academia and ReliabilityFirst.

The summit will kick off with our annual Awards Ceremony and reception on Monday night, followed by a full day of panels and presentations on Tuesday. Wednesday morning will include additional presentations, concluding with industry committee meetings.
