Getting to Know Today’s Electric Utility Industry

Is it right for you?

Are you new to the industry?  Do you work for an electric utility, regulatory agency, or policy-maker? Let’s get you up to speed. Are you part of a clean tech company, non-profit, or utility supplier? Then this is the class for you. Maybe you are an experienced professional just looking to keep up with the changes and disruptions in the industry. You’re welcome to join us, too.

When you’re done you’ll know…

So much more than you ever thought you were missing! You can tell all your friends about the basic principles of electricity, and share your knowledge of the many types of generation. Everyone will be impressed when you explain the different monopoly business models. When someone asks, “What’s a NERC?” you’ll know, and you’ll also know what a FERC is. Wow them with your grasp of the North American grid organization, and explain why disruption has the industry in an upheaval. PURPA will no longer keep you up at night, and you’ll rest easier knowing that unbundling and deregulation are occurring all across the country. If all of that wasn’t enough, we’ll throw in some customer trends and choices! And you thought electric utilities were boring.
