Utilities, Municipalities And Others Seek To Meet Their Own Needs
Chuch Ross of Electrical Contractor writes, “It’s a complicated time to be an electricity-generating company in the United States. Volatility in the natural gas market is forcing utility planners to rethink fueling options, and new emissions regulations are adding even more questions to their long-term forecasts. Now water is becoming a critical component in plant siting and relicensing, as well, and its importance likely will rise should current drought conditions continue. ”
Chris Vlahoplus, partner and clean tech & sustainability practice leader at ScottMadden, said, “We see longer term water issues beginning to be a concern, but not universally. The industry as a whole is beginning to awaken to the broader issue and only now beginning to get its arms around this bigger picture.”
