Utility Regulation 2.0: Empowering What's Possible, Portland, OR.

CUB's seventh annual policy conference is specifically designed to educate analysts, attorneys, advocates, regulators, utility executives, and others working in and around the energy industry. Utilities are in a tough spot in 2017. Traditional utility regulation encourages investment in large long-term assets like power plants. But many people, including regulators and customers, believe that the future will be built around energy efficiency, demand response, distributed generation, and flexibility. It is perhaps an understatement to say that the utility business model of today is balancing precariously on a precipice. The question is: Do we give it a quick shove, send it tumbling into the ravine of history, and start over? Do we pull it back from the edge and apply regulatory first aid? Do we leave it alone and see what happens? Can we maintain traditional regulation but get different results or do we need a change in the regulatory approach?  more
