Why We Need to Reform Energy Regulation

By Pete Pedersen, Managing Principal of Brightfields

Renewable Energy World

The evolution of electric generation technology has quickly outpaced the ability of traditional regulatory control mechanisms to ensure we enjoy its benefits. During the past century, we have transitioned from a monolithic fossil fuel-based energy core to a generation mix that includes everything in the kitchen sink. Along this trajectory towards diversification, state and federal regulatory authorities have often been at odds about how to maintain reasonably priced and reliable power supply in the face of a federally granted monopoly. The result has been reactive policy implementation and a regulatory framework that continually lags behind our constantly changing utility industry. As new technologies compete with established generation facilities, and as transmission and distribution systems continue to expand and improve, we must upgrade the rules guiding the production, transmission and delivery of electricity.
