Utilities Grapple with a 'No Load Growth' Future
The utility business model historically has been tied to load growth. But despite a 9% increase in U.S. gross domestic product since 2008, electricity use in America has remained the same. What might the absence of load growth mean for the future of the utility as we know it?
Is It Already Time To Discuss Peak Shale Gas?
Canadian geoscientist David Hughes suggests that the flush of shale gas is likely to peak
by 2020, then decline. If true, the decline will hit right after completion of
many capital projects funded based on the assumption of
long-term robust natural gas supply. Could the U.S. be headed for a repeat of the LNG import projects of the 2000s?
The Future of Energy
Despite Low Oil Prices, Don't Dismiss Electric Vehicles
Current market conditions might not indicate it, but electric vehicles (EVs) are changing the energy landscape. Ten states have mandates that require a certain percentage of vehicles sold to be electric or fuel-cell powered. Additionally, some major technology players are joining in the EV development scene. Could EVs be the electricity industry's ticket to a revolutionary breakthrough?
