ScottMadden, Inc., one of North America’s leading management consulting firms specializing in energy, will soon release its spring Energy Industry Update. For more than a decade, the ScottMadden Energy Industry Update has served as a catalyst for strategic discussion, debate, and decisions. More than 10,000 executive leaders rely on it for the most important trends and thought-provoking insights.

Themed “How Soon Is Now?,” this issue will focus on the growing mix of voices advocating for change in the energy industry—whether that is transitioning away from coal, increasing renewables, deploying distributed energy resources, or decreasing reliance on natural gas. How quickly can we make the changes without compromising reliability, resiliency, affordability, and the financial viability of the industry’s key players?

In this Update, ScottMadden will address how the industry is answering the call for change related to:

  • The reversal of progress made in CO2 emissions reductions due to nuclear-generation retirements
  • Smart cities for improved quality of life and the role an energy utility can play in supporting smart city development
  • Interest in non-wires alternatives, considerations for their planning and procurement, and where we might see them next

“As we listen to stakeholders in the energy industry, change needs to happen on many fronts, right now,” says Cristin Lyons, partner and energy practice leader at ScottMadden. “The question is, how much can change, dramatically and immediately, given long-lived assets and established regulatory constructs? This EIU considers critical changes in the industry today and asks the question, ‘How Soon is Now?’”
