I hope you all have been keeping up with the Energy Central Power PerspectivesTM Podcast in recent weeks, as we've had some dynamite episodes with unbelievable guests: from the CTO of Ameren to the General Manager of Customer Operations at Con Edison to the Acting Director of DOE's Solar Energy Technologies Office and many, many more. 

Your access to Member Features is limited.

Is it time to add your name to the list? 

We're starting to fill out our calendar of guests for early 2022, and we want your help. Whether you'd like to be a guest, you know someone in your organization who would be perfect, or even if you have a recommendation of an industry leader you'd love to hear us interview, we want to hear from you!


Who Can Be a Guest?

The goal of the Energy Central Power Perspectives Podcast is to reach our utility professional audience with stories from their peers in the utility sector. So guests on the podcast should be those working at utility organizations today. Specifically, we want to feature leadership at these utilities: CEOs, GMs, VPs, CMOs, and other C-Suite executives at utilities, winners of recent awards for the utility sector, speakers at upcoming utility industry conferences, and people whose work is getting referenced and cited widely in mainstream utility industry news coverage. 

If you aren't a utility professional yourself, but your organization is working directly with a utility on a major noteworthy project, we'd also encourage you to reach out about a podcast episode that can feature someone from your organization and the utility partner as co-guests. 

Note: There is no cost for interviews scheduled with guests from utilities, IPPs, RTOs, regulators, and government agencies. For solution providers and industry vendors, the Energy Central Power Perspectives Podcast offers a unique opportunity to reach our listeners: utility executives and decision-makers, marketing processionals at utility organizations, energy industry leaders and influencers, and more. To learn how someone from your company can be featured in the podcast, or how you can become a podcast sponsor, please get in touch with a client representative at or you can download our product guide. We're open to utility-focused topics that will allow your representatives to shine as podcast guests, so we'd love to chat with you today about how to make that happen.


What Topics Are Poised to be Covered on the Podcast in 2022?

In particular, can you or someone you're thinking about that aligns with the above guest types speak to any of the following topics we plan on featuring in upcoming episodes:

  • Investing in the grid
  • Where newly acquired infrastructure spending from the federal budget will be going for utilities
  • How are utilities dealing with mounting quantities of unpaid bills
  • The production and manufacture of batteries for grid-scale applications
  • The potential for high-voltage direct current transmission
  • Hydrogen blending into natural gas resources
  • The importance of diversity & inclusion in the utility workforce
  • Issues at power providers related to procurement and supply chain
  • Utility rate structures and rate cases
  • The story of the men and women working as utility lineworkers
  • The under-discussed downsides of any renewable technologies (e.g., end of life, resource mining)
  • Breaking into utilities as a new graduate or amid a career change


If any of the above topics or profiles line up with you or a potential guest you're thinking of recommending, please reach out to us! Email with the subject line ‘Podcast Guest 2022’ and include a few quick notes on the guest you're suggesting, the topic you'd like to see covered, and what that potential guest's background in that field is. 


Thanks, and I'm looking forward to hearing you on the podcast waves!
