Presented by David Hurlbut, Markets & Policy Analysis Group in NREL’s Strategic Energy Analysis Center

The electricity business is changing fast and radically. A deep evolution is at work, never apparent in headlines or social media unless you know how the clues fit together. The old world is quietly giving way to a new one--disrupting the traditional utility culture, creating greater choices for customers, even affecting the industry’s response to global warming.  Join David Hurlbut, a member of the Markets & Policy Analysis Group in the Strategic Energy Analysis Center (SEAC) at NREL's Power Lunch Lecture Series to learn about trends he discusses in his new book, Creative Destruction and the Electric Utility of the Future.

Dr. Hurlbut’s areas of expertise include regulatory policy, electricity market design, economics, legislative analysis, econometrics, and cost-benefit analysis.  He leads NREL’s support to the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation on issues relating to the closure of Navajo Generating Station, a major coal-fired power plant located on the Navajo Reservation. His research interests focus on economic incentives and market behavior affecting energy efficiency and renewable energy deployment, competitive electricity markets, and renewable energy infrastructure.
