Tigercomm_Insights on Utility Model Reform

 

We’re proud to have hosted the editors of six leading clean economy news sites last month. It was the first time they’d convened to discuss trends in the sectors they cover. In our most recent post, we summarized trends the editors followed pre-pandemic and their predictions for how clean economy companies emerge post-pandemic.

However, the panel also focused on the emerging business model for utilities. That topic has received attention from Vox’s David Roberts (here and here), former FERC Chairman Jon Wellinghoff and Stanford’s Mark Jacobson, to name a few.
