We want to ensure that Energy Central is always your go-to source to tap into the pulse of the energy sector-- which includes local, state, national, and even international trends. Well, one of the prevailing stories you're likely reading about and hearing from your colleagues is the attention being given to the current situation related to natural gas availability, rising prices expected for the upcoming winter heating season, and overall supply/demand challenges that are hanging over all of these topics. 

But at Energy Central, we want to go beyond the headlines that you're seeing in the mainstream news and get to the heart of the matter from the utility perspective. How much is this attention a source of hype for the news cycle and how much of this is a real trend that utility leaders need to get ahead of now before the impacts are felt more widely?

With that in mind, the amount of conversation already happening in the Energy Central Community regarding the 2021 Energy Crisis warrants attention, and we want to call for additional thought leaders in our community to weigh in-- whether that's with original blog posts, sharing breaking news they come across in the industry, or active discussions on the problems, impacts, and potential solutions in the comments of all of the above. 

So when submitting your thoughts on this critical topic, be sure to use the Hot Topic Tag  '2021 Energy Crisis' and your content will be eligible to be included in a critical newsletter we'll send out to the wider community highlighting the most can't-miss Energy Central Conversations on the topic. And if you want to read all that's been said already, click on the '2021 Energy Crisis' topic tag to see all content pieces surrounding this emerging and quickly evolving area of focus.


Looking forward to the continued and productive conversation from our experts, thought leaders, and community members!
