How Utilities Fit Into the Evolving Energy Landscape

How Utilities Fit Into the Evolving Energy Landscape

One of the biggest questions that utilities face is how they can better serve their customer. In most deregulated markets it can be the deciding factor in maintaining their customer. To better understand consumers' thoughts and positions on distributed power, PennEnergy conducted a distributed generation consumer survey. More than 250 respondents from around the U.S. answered a series of questions regarding their thoughts on distributed energy sources and how utilities will continue to fit into the evolving energy landscape.

Full Speed Ahead
 
Today the House of Representatives passed the Advanced Nuclear Technology Development Act by voice vote. Sponsored by Rep. Robert Latta (R-OH), the bill is a replica of the version introduced in the 114th Congress, and will "foster civilian research and development of advanced nuclear energy technologies and enhance the licensing and commercial deployment of such technologies." The legislation requires DOE and NRC to "collaborate to provide certainty for the development of advanced nuclear technology."
 
Another set of nuclear legislation regarding waste and storage has also been introduced in the House. 
 
 Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC) introduced the  Sensible Nuclear Waste Disposition Act, which "prevents the Department of Energy from constructing a new defense waste repository until the Nuclear Regulatory Commission has made a final decision regarding the outcome of Yucca Mountain."

 Reps. Darrell Issa (R-CA) and Mike Conaway (R-TX) also introduced the  Interim Consolidated Storage Act . This bill "would allow the Department of Energy to use interest from the Nuclear Waste Fund to contract temporary storage facilities for spent nuclear fuel and could have the federal government begin collecting waste from nuclear facilities across the country in as little as 5 years."
 
Both bills have been referred to the House Committee on Energy and Commerce, the first step in the legislative process.
