A recent article by Greentech Media dives into the possible ways that utility companies can improve the results of their renewable energy initiatives. The success of renewable energy is inherently dependent upon the active engagement of these utility companies, companies that have the capital necessary and the interest in securing portions of the emerging U.S. solar industry. Below are some important points addressed by Greentech:
- The “old guard” skeptic management of utility companies must integrate themselves with new, young, and intelligent employees.
- Utility companies must better manage pilot technology by not committing themselves to large projects that utilize new and unproven technology, but also by running with emerging technology that has proven its worth.
- Multi-stakeholder involvement must begin early. The insular nature of utility companies must be replaced with active outreach to tech companies, consumers, regulators, and environmentalists.
