1.0 Overview CPE credit | Specialized Knowledge

The electric power industry has faced rising costs amid slow demand growth for more than a decade. Given recent inflation, increasingly extreme weather, potential cyber and physical threats, and grid complexity, can electric companies advance the clean energy transition while maintaining affordability? We’ll discuss:

  • Key trends impacting electric company spending and electricity consumption
