why focus on electricity
Why Focus on Electricity?
  • Electricity is one of the largest and most capital-intensive sectors of the economy.
    • America’s electric assets exceed $800B with 60% invested in power plants, 30% invested in distribution and 10% in transmission facilities.
    • There are 3,100 electric utilities and more than 2,000 independent power companies and customer-owned distributed-energy facilities.
  • Annual electric expenditures total over $250B annually (and increasing).

Why Focus on Electricity(continued)
  • Benefits outweigh risks of not doing anything.
    • Rising fuel prices and uncertain access to fossil fuels.
    • Electricity demand projected to increase by 30% to 2035. (USDOE)
    • Global warming and the harm to the atmosphere.
    • Poor utilization of economic capital.
    • Updating of 100+ year old technology.
    • Momentum of Sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility.
  • The Electric Power Research Institute estimates that while the Smart Grid will cost $165B between now and 2025, the ROI (savings) will be 4 to 1 or nearly $800B.
  • New business models are still being developed
  • Standards for collection of data need to be formalized
  • Training around new devices, services, processes and procedures is required
  • Consolidation must occur – realignment of existing infrastructure and assets
  • Regulatory environment in question
  • Best practices around security of information and compliance with regulation are still being developed
what s next
