    ScottMadden Provides a Management Guide to Coal Plant

    September 8, 2016 - ATLANTA, GA – (September 7, 2016)


      ScottMadden, Inc., one of North America's leading
      energy consulting firms, has released a new report focused on coal plant decommissioning.
      This report explores the drivers of coal plant closures and recommends the approach
      generation companies should use to ensure equity and management control throughout the
      decommissioning process.

      A large number of coal plants are expected to retire within the next five years. Generation
      companies that operate coal-fired facilities must carefully make and execute the
      decommissioning decision to ensure more than just financial prudence. The human element of
      retiring an older coal plant requires careful consideration and execution to ensure employees
      are treated fairly, regulators are provided adequate notice, and the company's public
      perception is not harmed. How do you plan a successful plant decommissioning? What key
      components should be included in the plan?

      "Closing a coal plant is a big decision for a generation company. These are very large assets
      that have operated in the local community for decades and have large staffs. Companies need
      to be intentional about their business operations while concurrently sensitive to multiple
      stakeholder groups, including the staff, unions, and community. Successful generation
      companies ensure line-of-sight management over the process while executing via an
      integrated project plan," said Todd Williams, partner and fossil practice co-leader at

      ScottMadden has assisted multiple generation companies to effectively analyze, plan, and
      execute plant decommissioning projects. Let us help you with plant decommissioning and
      other fossil generation initiatives
