Washington, DC /PRNewswire/ - Environment & Energy Publishing LLC is excited to announce a major expansion of EnergyWire's scope of coverage - they will now bring subscribers in-depth coverage of the various forces reshaping the electric utility industry. And that is in addition to their groundbreaking reporting on the game-changing growth of unconventional fossil fuel production. (For a limited time EnergyWire is available outside the paywall and free to review.)
EnergyWire is the established leader in comprehensive, daily coverage of the issues surrounding unconventional energy - from environmental concerns to energy security to the infrastructure necessary to support this massive new resource.
Among the major consequences stemming from unconventional energy development is the huge increase in domestic natural gas production, an event that is dramatically reshaping the electric utility industry as gas becomes the go-to fuel for base-load power, displacing other sources. Other factors, from expanded solar energy utilization to "smart grids," are also changing the traditional electric utility model, and the expansion of EnergyWire will bring all these elements together in one premier daily service, staffed with some of the best reporters in the business.
"EnergyWire will continue to be the leading source for unconventional energy coverage," said EnergyWire Editor Amy Carlile. "But with the addition of a half-dozen proven reporters - from Bloomberg News, Platts, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution and theSt. Louis Post-Dispatch - we'll now bring readers detailed insight on the factors transforming the electric utility industry.
New coverage areas for EnergyWire include grid security and stability, flat or declining power demand, new infrastructure requirements, the growth of distributed generation, net metering of electricity use, microgrids, the battle over renewable portfolio requirements, the retirement of existing base-load generation and much more.
E&E's ultimate goal is for this additional coverage to provide readers with unparalleled information about the rapid transformation of the energy sector.
EnergyWire is a huge success for E&E and its readers. The additions they are now putting in place will dramatically build on that strong base and deliver unparalleled coverage of the transformation of the energy sector.
