The Energy Market in 2021: From Crisis to Opportunity | Decoding the Future Value of Behind-the-Meter Load for Cryptocurrency and Computing


The energy market has undergone significant change in the past 12 months, with even more on the horizon. Join us for a webinar series as we explore how these changes have shaped—and will continue to impact—the energy industry, including discussions of what’s to come.

On May 5, McDermott partners Ed Zaelke and Chris Gladbach will host Dave Perrill and Jeff Jackson of Compute North, as well as P.J. Lee of EverStream Energy Capital Management, to discuss the relationship between the rapidly expanding computing and cryptocurrency industries and the power sector – including how Compute North’s ability to co-locate its computing facilities on power project sites is satisfying the computing industry’s need for cheap power and creating enormous opportunities in the independent and renewable power sectors.

During this 30-minute complimentary webinar, we will cover:

  • What the computing and cryptocurrency industry is and its growth potential
  • The relationship between the power sector and the rapidly growing computing and cryptocurrency industries
  • How Compute North’s co-location strategy is creating unique opportunities in the power sector
