The American Council on Renewable Energy (ACORE) released a new report titled, “Evolving Business Models for Renewable Energy: 2014 Industry Review.” The member-authored publication explores key issues and provides recommendations related to evolving utility business models through the integration of renewable energy. A contribution from ScottMadden provides an overview of current utilities’ responses to distributed generation and a course of action for the future.
The ScottMadden analysis finds that despite some rhetoric to the contrary, utilities will continue to exist and play a vital role in providing valuable services to customers. Therefore, utilities must have room to become valuable partners to ensure that distributed resources become a long-term, positive enhancement of the electric grid.
