ScottMadden, Inc., one of North America’s leading energy consulting firms, developed a research article which is now featured in the February 2017 edition of the Natural Gas & Electricity Journal titled, “Regulatory and Legislative Changes Affecting Rate-Case Strategies.” This journal is a publication available through the Wiley Online Library, which is one of the largest and most authoritative collections of online journals, books, and research resources.
Rick Starkweather, partner and regulatory practice leader at ScottMadden, developed the featured article to provide a comprehensive look at the evolving regulatory framework for utilities. The article examines key industry drivers, evolving business models, and some of the changes in state jurisdiction regulations around distributed energy resources before delving into rate-case strategies to respond to these changes.
“We are seeing a broad spectrum of responses from state regulators as they seek to adapt the traditional regulatory constructs in their state to facilitate the integration of distributed energy resources, such as renewables,” said Mr. Starkweather. “These range from a purely market-based approach in Texas to more comprehensive, central planning frameworks in California and New York.”
