About the Working Group

As sponsors for energy innovation by investor-owned utilities, public power, and cooperatives,  the Smart Electric Power Alliance (SEPA), Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI), Gridwise Alliance, and Grid Forward (Consortium) are pleased to sponsor a new forum for utility members and their strategy leaders. Members will participate in monthly virtual sessions where they will discuss innovative business model constructs, and hear from energy companies and organizations who have demonstrated success in assimilating new technology into financially viable business models. Topics include, planning and designing a model for prudent clean, resilient, or renewable energy investment, revenue regulation or cost mitigation, and new policy directives.
