ScottMadden to Release Winter 2013–2014 Energy Industry Update


WEBWIRE – Tuesday, January 21, 2014

Atlanta, GA. - ScottMadden, Inc., one of North America’s leading energy consulting firms, will soon release its latest edition of the Energy Industry Update, a semi-annual report received by more than 10,000 industry leaders nation-wide. Themed “Here Comes the Sun,” this issue will feature ScottMadden’s perspective on significant events and emerging trends in the industry.

This edition of the Energy Industry Update will focus on a number of strategic issues, including a look at issues facing electric utilities and regulators as distributed generation converges with slowing growth in kilowatt-hour sales.

“Public utility commissions and, as a consequence, utility executives are looking at various options in the structure of rates and changes in the regulatory compact to accommodate new technologies and energy choices available to customers, including distributed energy resources,” said Rick Starkweather, partner and regulatory practice area leader at ScottMadden. “The degree and pace of change and the need to ensure adequate funding of grid reliability and other policy initiatives like energy efficiency and renewable portfolio standards make this problem complex for policymakers who are trying to ensure proper price signals and an equitable allocation of costs for customers.”

For more than a decade, the ScottMadden Energy Industry Update has served as the catalyst for strategic discussion, debate, and decisions. More than 10,000 industry leaders rely on it for the most important trends and thought-provoking insights. Click to download the prior issue, the Early Fall 2013 ScottMadden Energy Industry Update.
