ScottMadden Inc., one of North America’s leading energy consulting firms, recently released The Energy Industry Update. This semi-annual publication features our view of recent significant events and emerging trends in the energy industry.
Themed “Managing with Uncertainty Fatigue,” this issue profiles key regulatory developments, ranging from smart grid deployment—a flashpoint for consumers and utilities in some jurisdictions, to tightening environmental requirements for coal-fired power plants, to possible shifts in transmission investment returns.
“The ratemaking environment continues to be challenging, given the slow-growth U.S. economy and the level of investment that utilities are going to make," said Rick Starkweather, partner and head of ScottMadden’s rates and regulatory practice.
For more than a decade, the ScottMadden Energy Industry Update has served as a catalyst for strategic discussion, debate, and decisions. Thousands of industry leaders rely on it for the most important trends and thought-provoking insights.
