ATLANTA - Dec. 10, 2013 - PRLog -- ScottMadden, Inc., one of North America’s leading energy consulting firms, is partnering with the Solar Electric Power Association (SEPA) to conduct a benchmarking study on renewable energy organizational structure within North American electric utilities.

The objectives of the study are to benchmark key renewable energy activities and functions within participating utilities and examine how different utilities organize their renewable energy groups and functions. The analysis will also provide a baseline for annual research to track changes in utility best practices over time.

“This work is occurring at a critical juncture as deployment of renewable technologies continues to grow,” stated Chris Vlahoplus, partner and clean tech & sustainability practice leader at ScottMadden. “Over the long term, it will be critical for renewable energy functions to be well integrated into utility planning and operations. We know that utilities are looking for this type of benchmarking information, and we do not believe that this data is readily available.”

Utility participants will receive a detailed report upon survey close. In addition, summary results will be presented at SEPA’s Utility Solar Conference ( to be held April 28–30, 2014, in Newport Beach, CA.
