ScottMadden, Inc., one of North America’s leading management consulting firms specializing in energy, has released its latest edition of The Energy Industry Update (EIU). This issue of the EIU explores current thinking about electrification, which is of increasing interest to the electric and gas industries, stakeholders, and policy makers.
The electric industry foresees a growth opportunity in efficient electrification, but certain hurdles could restrain widespread electrification. Utilities and policymakers will need to carefully analyze technology applications, potential adoption rates, customers’ economic trade-offs, and grid and resource implications to assess costs and benefits, both financial and environmental. This Update explores potential electrification scenarios across all major sectors of the U.S. energy system.
“Different stakeholders have different expectations and interests in electrification. What we are seeing from recent projections is that the reality—when it comes to load growth, emissions reductions, or other expected outcomes—is dependent on a number of variables that could point to the limitation, or the significant opportunity, of widespread electrification,” comments Justin Stevens, director at ScottMadden.
If you were not able to join our Energy Industry Update webcast, the complimentary recording is now available. Hear what our industry experts have to say about changes to grid modernization efforts around the nation, evolving federal policy toward wholesale energy infrastructure development, and opportunities for and possible trade-offs with increased electrification in this session replay. You may also hear more about their original analysis in this new video.
