- Pub. Date:
- Springer US
Leaving the burning wreckage of California and similar disaster behind them, economists and other professionals from electric utilities, consulting companies, and other businesses forge ahead with new issues the industry must tackle as it shifts its allegiance from users to investors. Among them are defining a sustainable value proposition for customers that builds on but does not rely on price, developing a cost-effective customer-acquisition strategy, investing in office systems for management and billing, coming up with a pricing strategy for the transition period, and developing a portfolio of supply contracts.
