This semi-annual publication features our view of recent significant events and emerging trends in the energy industry. In this issue, ScottMadden observes that aging plants, shifting demand patterns, continued growth of renewable resources, and costly environmental regulations are driving substantial investment needs.
“Our utility clients are seeing some developments that can help moderate rate increases, such as relatively inexpensive natural gas,” said Brad Kitchens, president and CEO of ScottMadden. “But the energy sector still faces a new round of investment requirements and will need to find ways to fund this build-out.”
The Energy Industry Update also includes:
• The possible impact of the Fukushima Daiichi release of radioactive material on the global nuclear industry, from new plant development to changes in emergency preparedness standards and processes
• The continuing ramifications of “game-changing”
• The outlook for coal-fired generation in the wake of substantially tighter EPA restrictions on emissions and water usage
