The Future of Utilities: Utilities of the Future, Fereidoon P. Sioshansi (ed.), Published by Elsevier in April 2016, 466 pp, $100.00, ISBN: 978-0-12-804249-6. Paperback.
Rapid technological advancements plus falling costs of distributed energy resources (DERs) — which includes energy efficiency improvements plus distributed generation — is turning an increasing number of consumers into prosumers, eroding utility revenues and threatening the historical business model.
Equally important are rapid advances in energy storage, electric vehicles, micro-grids, intelligent home energy management, demand aggregation, and demand response, all pointing to a different future with a different role for the incumbents.
Future of utilities: Utilities of the Future, which includes contributions from experts with different perspectives from different parts of the globe, examines the implications of these developments on the electric power sector.
