Transforming America's Power Industry: The Investment Challenge 2010-2030

§  The U.S. electric utility industry faces the greatest challenge in its history. The demand for electric services to meet the needs of our growing population and to power our increasingly digital and connected economy continues to rise.

§  To chart the magnitude of this challenge, The Edison Foundation asked The Brattle Group to examine the total investment that would be required to maintain today's high levels of reliable electric service across the United States through 2030, net of the investment that could be avoided through the implementation of more aggressive energy efficiency and demand response (EE/DR) programs.
