Rethink What’s Possible

Over the last century, our industry built the largest system ever made by mankind—the electric power system. In the process, we proved electric power can be dependable and economical. Today, aging assets, supply chain security, emerging technologies, and regulation create new challenges for power systems worldwide.

The SEL Modern Solutions Power Systems Conference fosters open discussion and knowledge sharing amongst a variety of industries and disciplines working together to rethink what’s possible for modern power systems and discover new opportunities for the next 100 years.

Join the discussions. Be part of the solutions.


This year's conference discusses integrating new energy sources, developing secure supply chains, solving energy storage, managing critical assets, accelerating workforce development, and more.

The conference is grounded in the practical considerations of today’s technical challenges and managerial constraints, while taking a comprehensive look at different strategies, technologies, and solutions.

View the Agenda


Each year we invite speakers from a variety of industries to explore topics from different perspectives and to ultimately identify opportunities, develop strategies, share best practices, and envision solutions for power systems now and in the future.

The format of MSPSC encourages candid discussion, interactive learning, and invaluable networking opportunities.
