Distributed Resources and Utility Business Models – The Chronicle of a Death Foretold?

September 2013

While the industry may be facing profound changes to the manner in which electricity is produced and delivered, there is an opportunity for utilities to begin to integrate new resources in a way that leverages existing infrastructure and ensures (and even improves) reliability. The white paper also profiles strategic and tactical implications of customer self-supply.
