ScottMadden, Inc., one of North America’s leading energy consulting firms, recently sponsored the American Gas Association (AGA) Financial Forum. This conference connected industry experts to assess the outlook for the energy industry and individual companies. Ed Baker, partner at ScottMadden, attended the event.
“Gas LDCs have worked hard to replace leak-prone pipe. As they do so, and subsequently expand the rate base against low or no growth, they may have to more aggressively address cost to offset increases to customer bills,” stated Mr. Baker.
Cost-reduction efforts often struggle because companies cannot easily compare operations and identify improvement opportunities across different LDCs or jurisdictions. ScottMadden understands this challenge and has partnered with clients to deliver a repeatable process that allows a utility to identify and implement efficiencies and best practices across its gas LDCs. View this report to learn about our workload-based assessment and how the comprehensive approach supported a gas efficiency study at a large, vertically integrated utility with multiple natural gas LDCs.
