Fundamental Course: Energy Utility Basics
Co-Sponsored by the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners
October 26-30, 2009
This is an annual foundation course, updated each year as technology, regulation, competition and markets evolve. The WPUI Basic Course for Energy Utilities was first offered in 1983. The Institute is proud to present this exceptional course.
Over four and a half days participants will receive an introduction to the electric and natural gas industries, insights into regulatory decision-making, and an analysis of the current issues facing both industries.
Who Should Attend
The energy industry has undergone substantial change—not the least of which is the hiring practice. 20 years ago new utility staff would start out learning the ropes by working up through the ranks. Now the industry finds hiring staff from other industries to be advantageous in this fast moving business environment—but this often means that they don’t have the full picture of the industry. This course is intended for anyone working in the energy industry including public interest groups, legislative staff, regulatory staff, state and local government personnel. It is intended for energy professionals who would like a better idea of how all the physical, financial and political pieces fit together.
Attendees will obtain practical, non-technical knowledge of the operations and technology of the natural gas and electricity industries from the ground to the customer’s bill.
