  • ElectricityGas Fundamentals for Power Markets: Supply, Storage, and Transport

    In recent years, electric systems traditionally dependent on coal power have seen a number of coal units shut down and replaced with natural gas. Unlike coal units that store coal onsite, gas units are dependent on gas pipelines and markets to deliver supply as power plants are dispatched. Yet many individuals involved in the electric industry don't have a basic understanding of how gas systems and markets function and the various tariff rules and gas industry practices that impact gas availability. Gas Fundamentals for Power Markets: Supply, Storage, and Transport provides detailed knowledge that helps participants evaluate what is required for obtaining reliable and cost-effective gas supply and what the factors are that determine when gas is, or is not, available to power generators.

  • ElectricityHow Your Utility Makes Money

    Unbelievably, most people working at utilities have no idea how their utility makes money. This four-hour course was developed for a utility that was concerned that rate hikes arising from a long-delayed rate case would cause customers to think the utility was making huge profits. The course is customized to a specific utility (we now teach it at five) so participants understand specifics on how their own utility makes money. The target audience is broad and includes field people, managers, administrative assistants, and any others who can benefit from a better understanding of how their utility makes a profit.
