    ScottMadden’s Latest Energy Industry Update Explores Non-Wires as Non-Traditional Solutions to Grid Constraints


    June 20, 2019 - ScottMadden, Inc.

     

      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 “How Soon is Now?,” this issue of the EIU explores how non-wires alternatives (NWAs) are being introduced across the country as a potential alternative to building utility infrastructure.

      Over the past few years, NWAs have emerged as an alternative to traditional investments in the electric transmission and distribution system. NWAs may be a cost-effective resource to provide benefits to utilities and customers, while also being a clean and non-carbon emitting resource. This edition of the EIU considers the future of NWAs and how they could provide important lessons in the coming years.

      “NWAs present both an opportunity and a challenge to utilities. As utilities consider adopting NWAs, they must address questions regarding cost-benefit calculations, governance of planning and, operations, and procurement of third-party resources. The answers to these questions will vary depending on the utility’s structure and the state regulatory environment,” says Chris Sturgill, manager at ScottMadden.

      For more information about these issues and why more states are turning to NWAs as a solution to grid constraints, hear from Mr. Sturgill in this new video.
