ScottMadden to Release Semi-Annual Energy Industry Update and Host Free Webcast to Highlight Key Topics

April 5, 2016

ScottMadden, Inc., one of North America’s leading energy consulting firms, will release its semi-annual Energy Industry Update in April. This publication offers our inside view of major events and emerging trends in the energy industry and is received by more than 10,000 industry leaders.

Themed “Neither Fish nor Fowl,” this issue will focus on strategic drivers that are propelling, and challenging, our industry. We will offer insights on topics like the energy transitions in Texas and Hawaii, the role of the utility, and cybersecurity:

  • A review of the energy transitions in Texas and Hawaii. We will examine how increasing amounts of distributed resources are affecting the traditional electric utility business model and operations. How can utilities anticipate and respond to evolving customer interest? We will discuss what is happening on the ground in these states based on our recent fact-finding trips with senior utility executives
  • Insights on the role of the utility, looking at the traditional functions of the utility. What could be changing? What are the implications for customers and the utility business?
  • A look at cybersecurity as information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT) networks are converging. What are the challenges for this model? How can companies address these challenges?
