State of the Electric Utility

2015 Annual Survey Report

EXCLUSIVE SURVEY

UPDATE: Click for the 2016 edition of this report.

Electric utilities are faced with a future of tremendous change and uncertainty, largely triggered by advancements in grid technology, new regulatory models and heightened customer expectations. Utility Dive surveyed more than 400 utility execs to reveal how utility leaders plan to address these challenges.

Sample Findings:

  • While 88% see distributed energy resources as an opportunity, 63% of those same respondents are not sure how to build a successful business around it.
  • Concern over emissions standards doubled from last year’s survey to 25%.
  • Only 7% of survey respondents were under 30, and more than 75% of respondents were over the age of 40.

"Utility executives clearly see immense opportunities in energy efficiency, rooftop solar and the customer relationship. They just aren’t sure what to do about it."
