When most of the professionals in our industry were coming up and making their way to leadership positions, the landscape of the utility industry looked pretty uniform: centralized power generation at scale that would then be transported to end use many miles away. Thanks to the advent of new technologies that paradigm has outright shifted and distributed energy has become just as critical as central power plants.
From batteries to small- and large-scale renewable generation to smart meters to digital technologies, we're truly living in a new utility industry compared with our predecessors. In many ways, though, the business of utilities has been slow to truly adopt and embrace this new normal. Part of that comes from inertia and an old way of thinking, part of it comes from the challenge of operating new technologies amid a legacy system, and part of it comes from the need for further education and sharing.
