ScottMadden Insight: Five Strategic Priorities for Generation and Transmission Cooperatives

ScottMadden, Inc. - 01.09.2012

ScottMadden, Inc., one of North America's leading energy consulting firms, recently published "Five Strategic Priorities for Generation and Transmission Cooperatives." This is the first installment in a series that examines critical issues that G&T cooperatives must be positioned to address in the future, specifically:

  • Managing generation assets
  • Ensuring grid security and reliability
  • Gaining access to capital markets
  • Improving the effectiveness of stakeholder management
  • Fostering economic development

“Our utility clients are facing a complex set of challenges on all fronts,” said Brad Kitchens, president and CEO of ScottMadden. “While G&T cooperatives face many of the same issues as other electric utilities—including aging infrastructure, shifting demand patterns, and substantial investment needs—these clients have their own unique set of constraints and objectives. Our goal is to help them prepare for the future by providing specialized and practical insight.”

ScottMadden has helped many of the country’s largest and most notable public power, municipal, and cooperative energy utilities succeed, despite an increasingly dynamic landscape. These organizations continue to value the deep energy knowledge, practical business acumen, and collaborative approach of ScottMadden’s experienced consultants.

“Cooperatives are special organizations that have played an essential role for a very long time,” said Marc Miller, who leads the public power, municipal, and cooperatives practice. “We are very excited to continue helping them tackle their toughest challenges.”

For nearly 30 years, ScottMadden has been a leader in energy consulting, serving more than 200 energy organizations, including 90% of the top 20, and has completed thousands of successful projects.
