  • Contents

Ninety percent of the success of your relationship with any ESCO is your ability to select, quantify, contract with, and measure the results you expect to accomplish. In his new book, industry expert and consultant John M. Studebaker, Ph. D., explains what ESCOs are, how they are evolving, and how they can benefit any electric power and natural gas utility user.

Structured from his actual experiences in working with various ESCOs as deregulation in both electricity and natural gas has continued to evolve, Studebaker explains how most retail customers will become involved in the direct purchase of these commodities, whether you want to or not. ESCOs can provide the expertise you need to make the right decision—one that best fits your needs.

The electric power industry is undergoing the greatest transformation in its 100-year history. In readable, concise fashion author Denise Warkentin explains how the electric industry works! After briefly tracing the history of the industry, she details shareholder-owned, consumer-owned utilities, as well as rural cooperatives and independent power producers. Other issues addressed include deregulation, the emergence of energy marketers, and the flurry of mergers, acquisitions, and consolidations now ongoing.
