Letter from the Community Leader:

Today's utility industry is more dynamic and fast-moving than it's been at any other point in our lifetimes: New technologies are changing what's possible; customers are expecting "Amazon" like experiences from their utilities; the global world is demanding utilities to pivot to clean energy and meet carbon-neutral goals; wildfires and extreme weather events are affecting resiliency and reliability; and the regulatory landscape and marketplace are shining more light on the entire energy system.  

The business operations side of running a utility can be daunting, intimidating, and ever-changing. And that is why we decided to put a laser focus on the Business Side of Running a Utility in 2022 for our February Special Issue Edition.

Your access to Member Features is limited.

In this Special Issue edition, you'll find a compendium of submissions from our esteemed Energy Central Community members as they opine, look back, and forecast forward on what the business side of utilities looks like in today's ever-changing landscape. I hope you take some time to read through these articles.

And finally, I will also note that the release of the Special Issue isn't the end of the topic but just the beginning. Let's make this Special Issue as interactive as possible: all the authors who submitted articles encourage you to leave comments, questions, and ideas in the comments section to which they can respond. 

I look forward to seeing you in the Community! 

Audra C Drazga

VP of the Power Industry Network
