Calling all thought leaders, industry insiders, and writers!
We are seeking contributions to our next Energy Central Hot Topic Special Issue Series, which happens to be our most popular one each year. We invite you to contribute to our multi-part issue that will stretch from January to February 2021 on the State of the Utility Industry via Predictions and Trends.
If ever there was a time to emphatically turn the page and look forward with optimism and excitement about the new year, it undoubtedly has to be our march into 2021. The utility sector has been put through the wringer recently. However, it's already coming out the other side more resilient, intelligent, and ready to tackle the future than ever before.
With that in mind, we're asking the Energy Central Community to look into their crystal balls to tell us what your predictions are for 2021 and what you expect the major trends and landmark stories will be in the coming year.
- Do you have programs that are set to deploy in 2021 you want to discuss?
- Are you anticipating market trends shifting in a new and intriguing way?
- Are coming policies and regulations set to change the way your utility approaches operations in 2021 and beyond?
We want to hear about it!
Our goal for this issue is to gather insights on what utilities and stakeholders across the grid are expecting, with the final digital publications resulting in an amazing crowd-sourced view on the state of the industry.
Share your predictions, your hopes, and your goals for the utility sector in 2021, and your contribution may be featured in Energy Central's most popular newsletter of the year!
