    ScottMadden’s Energy Industry Update Encourages Utilities: Don’t Stop Believin’ in the Grid

    October 30, 2018 - ScottMadden


      ScottMadden, Inc., one of North America’s leading management consulting firms specializing in energy, has released its latest edition of The Energy Industry Update (EIU). Themed “Don’t Stop Believin’,” this EIU explores grid modernization efforts around the nation, including some common themes, and what utilities should consider for their own programs.

      There is no one-size-fits-all definition for what grid modernization is or what investments comprise grid modernization initiatives; however, there are common themes around enabling customer engagement, enhancing reliability and resiliency, and more efficiently using grid assets. This Update addresses how states and utilities are testing the waters.

      “As customer expectations are set relative to other services and technology advances and as distributed energy resources become more prevalent, utilities are focusing on what capabilities they’ll need to adapt to a new environment and what investments in their systems are needed to get there. This report examines what those investments are and how they are justified and recovered, which varies by utility,” says Chris Sturgill, manager at ScottMadden.

      We encourage you to join ScottMadden for our interactive webcast on Friday, November 2, 2018, from 11:00AM–12:00PM EDT for an in-depth examination of key topics covered in this issue. During this complimentary session, our industry experts will share their views and field questions related to these key topics. See highlights in this new video.
