TransActions – July/August 2017


What’s Trending

ExplorerNew trends can emerge, current trends can change subtly or abruptly, going in different directions than what was originally anticipated when key decisions were made. These changing and emerging trends add to the challenge of navigating the landscape of energy and utility markets. With every day, every month, and every year, decisions need to be made, analyses are performed, models are run, and meetings are held.


The Electricity Use Flatline

ExplorerChanges in forecasted residential consumption can be attributed to behavioral and technological adaptations as well as evolving industry standards. The EIA expects electricity usage per household to decline by nearly 18 percent from 2017 to 2050, and about half of that decline is expected to occur by 2025.
