In a Public Utilities Fortnightly article, utility leaders discuss their pathways to a clean energy future with Guidehouse
Utilities are heavily invested in decarbonization for the communities and customers that they serve. As more utilities set net-zero targets by 2050 or earlier, they will need to change their strategy, investment and divestiture plans, business and regulatory models, products and services, and operations and people to capitalize on the opportunities of their decarbonization journey.
In a Public Utilities Fortnightly article, Guidehouse’s Jan Vrins, partner and leader of the global Energy, Sustainability, and Infrastructure segment, and Dan Hahn, partner, spoke with three inspiring CEOs on how their utilities are helping customers decarbonize, the impacts they are seeing, and pathways they are taking toward a clean energy future.
Patti Poppe, CEO, CMS Energy; Steve Malnight, CEO, Duquesne Light Company; and Maria Pope, CEO, Portland General Electric each shared their perspectives and tangible actions their companies are taking to meet their decarbonization goals and those of their customers.
“It’s clear that the industry executives are shifting their thinking about what’s the most attractive business model longer term,” Vrins said.
