ScottMadden to Release Energy Industry Update: Here Comes the Sun

Energy Industry Update

Online PR News – 14-January-2014 – Atlanta, GA – In its upcoming Energy Industry Update, ScottMadden, Inc., one of North America’s leading energy consulting firms, will examine strategic issues, such as evolving utility business models in the face of slower energy demand growth and increasing penetration of distributed generation, especially solar.

This upcoming issue is themed, “Here Comes the Sun.” In it, ScottMadden will offer insights on how utilities are responding to the growing penetration of distributed solar as well as:

• Lessons and observations for North America from Germany’s energy transition from traditional fuels to a significantly larger proportion of renewable power resources
• Merger and acquisition trends, drivers, and impediments
• The natural gas price outlook and implications for midstream development and exports

“As rooftop solar takes off in various regions, whether due to policy, declining costs, or customer preferences, utility executives are seeking ways in which to participate in this growth and still ensure adequate and fair allocation of the costs of the grid among all customers,” said Brad Kitchens, president and CEO of ScottMadden.

For more than a decade, the ScottMadden Energy Industry Update has served as the catalyst for strategic discussion, debate, and decisions. More than 10,000 industry leaders rely on it for the most important trends and thought-provoking insights.
