This is an incomplete set of True or False questions that should be asked to innovators, DOE, IOUs, and state regulators, participating at the EnergyBiz Leadership Forum to show that there is an urgent need for reform of the power industry.

  1. Is it true that customers in the US are expending an additional 50 cents for every dollar billed by utilities to lower their costs for lack of IOUs service performance?
  2. Is it true that the large value destruction is a signal that the business model of winning rate cases to the regulator is obsolete?
  3. Is it true the value destruction is widely differentiated among customers, which is against the assumptions underlying regulated rate cases and in favor of markets?
  4. Is it true that there is a need to open the industry to alternative business models to let differentiated killer applications evolve into business model innovations as it happen in the information and communications technologies industries?
  5. Is it true that most of the industry value destruction, in the additional 50 cents of every billed dollar, that creates value at the Edge (in the customer side of the meter), results in IOUs shooting themselves in the foot by holding onto their obsolete business model?
  6. Is it true that the Edge is generating an Everyone For Himself (EFH) market that is destroying immense value that could result in large coordination savings if demand could be integrated to power system planning, operation and control.
  7. Is it true that the stimulus funds will increase even more the EFH market unless reform is enacted to enable the coordination savings?
  8. Is it true that the whole emerging highly complex system is the combination of an increasingly value added Edge system and the traditional IOUs system?
  9. Is it true that the whole can be easily separated into two cohesive less complex systems,that are loosely couple among themselves, leading to the EWPC basic innovation?
  10. Is it true that the two EWPC systems are an unregulated business system and a regulated power transportation only system?


how do i get support from doe ? they are o hard to get a handel on .

Get DOE and other powerful entities to enable a reform to open the industry wholesale and retail business to business model innovations, while keeping regulated the physical integrated transmission and distribution and its system's planning and operation. To do that, the old force of attraction of the investor owned utilities paradigm is shifted to the new force of attraction of the electricity without price controls (EWPC) paradigm.
