ScottMadden’s Energy Industry Update Webcast – “Take It to the Limit”

June 18, 2020

Complimentary Webcast | 1:00PM EST–2:00PM EST

ScottMadden’s latest Energy Industry Update (EIU) explores how the energy industry could be “taken to the limit” by long-term trends and challenging business-as-usual approaches. It has been published at a unique time in the world, as a whole, and within the energy industry. The COVID-19 pandemic is changing everything, and no one is sure how the industry will look later this year, let alone in the long-term. What is certain is that customers will continue to need reliable and affordable electricity and natural gas.

The way that electric and gas utility service is delivered has been heavily impacted by COVID-19. Notwithstanding these dramatic changes to daily utility operations, it is likely that the broader trends we observed prior to this pandemic will continue to manifest in some form.

This free webcast will be based on ScottMadden’s latest Energy Industry Update. It will also provide ScottMadden’s perspectives on how COVID-19 may impact aspects of our industry. This is a great opportunity to take a step back and consider what is happening, what it means, and where our industry is headed.
