Southeast Energy Insecurity Stakeholder Initiative Webinar: Understanding Utility Business Models

Location: Webinar

Date: August 5, 2021

Thank you for participating in the Southeast Energy Insecurity Stakeholder Initiative, a project of the Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions at Duke University, Appalachian Voices, and the North Carolina Justice Center. The purpose of the Initiative is to facilitate a broad, collaborative discussion among stakeholders to explore the opportunities for reducing energy insecurity in the Southeast.
Over the last few months, stakeholders have begun to identify areas of interest where subject matter expertise would be useful to our ongoing working group discussions. One of these areas was the different types of utilities that exist in the Southeast and their respective business models, including how utilities operate, how they are regulated, and what is possible with respect to reducing energy burdens and improving energy security. To help us all gain a better understanding of this topic, we have put together a subject matter expert webinar on Wednesday, August 4, from 2 to 3 p.m. EDT.
Speakers include:
  • Therese Griffin, Dominion Energy
  • Patricia Housand, Santee Cooper
  • Lynda Shafer, Duke Energy
  • Jeff Smith, Southern Company
  • Mike Smith, Electric Cooperatives of South Carolina
Please register in advance for the webinar and feel free to forward on to colleagues who might be interested. The webinar will be recorded for those unable to make it live.
