Regulated utilities must strike the right balance between cost-effectively managing business-as-usual activities and investing for the future—while complying with ever-changing regulatory requirements.
Utilities are implementing multi-pronged strategies to safeguard and evolve system reliability and protect against climate-related events and cyber threats. At the same time, they must meet Environmental, Social, and Government (ESG) and decarbonization goals by ramping up renewable energy sources. Developing investment plans that accomplish these objectives takes innovative thinking and rigorous planning to satisfy and earn trust from internal and external stakeholders.
