What Is the SEPA Utility Transformation Survey?

Formerly the Annual Utility Survey

SEPA is embarking on the most comprehensive assessment ever of utilities’ efforts to transform the electric industry. The survey is the core part of the SEPA Utility Transformation Challenge, which goes beyond specific renewable and technology markets, such as solar or energy storage, to capture a more holistic view of how utilities are driving the evolution of the U.S. grid and the large-scale transformation of the energy system.
