As distributed energy resources become more prevalent on the grid, the business model for utilities is changing. Utilities must now consider how to create value for customers alongside these new models. Incentives, alternative rate designs, and new revenue models are being piloted with varying levels of success. New utility business models are needed to respond to the evolving needs of customers, policy changes, and challenges to grid resilience.
At ScottMadden, we are helping utilities and others in the evolving energy ecosystem determine how best to address their regulatory, operational, and business model questions. We have helped plan and implement pilot programs and have assessed the revenue and regulatory implications of the numerous alternatives being discussed today. We can help you select, pilot, and implement the strategy or model most appropriate for you.
