Climate Change and Regulation: Going Green II (PRE-ORDER)
Climate change is real, and playing the blame game is a costly distraction. Energy utility regulators are forced to the frontlines. This book expertly examines many challenges regulators face.
- How can they jump-start energy efficiency—and this time include smart things for customers?
- How should customer-owned distributed energy resources (DER) be integrated with utility operations? Or should it? And who pays for stranded costs?
- How will batteries, an internet-of-things, electric vehicles, and more be accepted and encouraged?
- What is the future structure of the industry and role of the energy utilities?
The most daunting hurdle for regulators is how they will accommodate what policy insiders from both political parties predict are inevitable expensive carbon fees that likely increase rapidly overtime. The new fees affect utility choices and will sharply increase utility bills.Utility regulators, utilities, their customers and competitors need to respond. This book helps them get ready and become proactive.
