As traditional utility models in the energy sector continue to fall short in meeting global economic, environmental and social challenges, is there space for a different kind of utility? Can the Sustainable Energy Utility (SEU) model co-exist with traditional utilities to help bridge these gaps?  What lessons can we learn from the implementation of the renowned District of Columbia Sustainable Energy Utility (DCSEU)? Can the DCSEU model be adapted to suit the operating conditions of cities in emerging economies? Please join us for an event to discuss the above questions.
