ScottMadden, Inc., one of North America’s leading energy consulting firms, is pleased to sponsor and present at the upcoming Edison Electric Institute (EEI) Strategic Issues Roundtable (http://www.eei.org/
on Wednesday, October 3–Friday, October 5 at the Conrad Hotel in Chicago, Illinois. This meeting is designed to encourage discussion and interaction on the key issues facing the electric power industry.
Rick Starkweather (http://www.scottmadden.com/bios/32/Rick-Starkweather.html
), partner at ScottMadden, will present “The Impact of Regulation – Simply More (and More) Restrictions on Our Business or Does It Also Provide Strategic Opportunities?”
This interactive discussion focused on over-regulation will highlight the history of utility regulation, industry events that caused the (perceived) need for more regulation, and impacts—has it really ended up being as bad as we thought?
“We are looking forward to an interactive dialogue based on a topic requested by EEI utility members—whether the industry is being ‘strangled by regulation,’”
said Mr. Starkweather. “Specifically, what do we believe the regulators are trying to accomplish or avoid in various areas through newly introduced regulations?
More importantly, can companies achieve strategic advantages from specific responses?”About ScottMadden, Inc.
