ScottMadden, Inc., one of North America’s leading energy consulting firms, recently sponsored and presented at S&P Global Market Intelligence’s 30th Annual Power and Gas M&A Symposium. This premier event provided a unique platform for leading industry professionals to share insights about energy utilities in the financial markets.
During the event, Stuart Pearman, partner and energy practice leader at ScottMadden, presented insights from ScottMadden’s Energy Industry Update, a publication received by more than 10,000 industry leaders. The breakout session, “What Would Yogi Berra Say?” provided attendees with an insider’s perspective on the strategic issues and opportunities facing the industry today.
The lively discussion focused on a broad range of topics including the “duck curve.” ScottMadden performed original research employing five years of CAISO data to examine the duck curve and its causes. “Our research confirmed that the 2013 duck curve prediction made by CAISO is coming true and faster than expect. But, it also revealed some surprises about what is causing the duck curve and, therefore, how to manage it,” said Mr. Pearman.
