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). This issue of the EIU explores evolving federal policy toward wholesale energy infrastructure development, including emerging issues in power transmission and gas pipeline projects.

While there is significant electric transmission infrastructure planned, completing those projects is becoming even more difficult. Gas pipeline projects face opposition as well, as interest in greenhouse gas impacts and resistance to gas as a “bridge fuel” pose as hurdles to continued development. This Updateaddresses how utilities are responding to these recent trends.

“Stakeholders are actively participating at all levels of the regulatory process. Projects are facing increased regulatory, legal, and compliance costs, as well as longer lead times,” comments Jennifer Nelson, director at ScottMadden.
