    • Utility Core Drivers y “All politics is local” • Politics - Utilities -> Regulators -> Politicians -> Consumers - “Reliable service at low cost” - Reliability = both generation and distribution • Managing political and financial risk - Over-build - Own and control - Avoid headlines • Ratesetting - For expenses, dollar-for-dollar recovery - For rate base, capital recovery plus ROE (IOUs only) - Higher sales = higher profitsSlide 4 Copyright © 2011 eMeter Corp.

    • Current regulatory drivers g y • Policy goals - Economic growth/cleantech - Energy security - Utility efficiency and reliability - Global warming g - Reliable energy at low cost • Policies that drive smart grid adoption - Renewable resource targets, including distributed generation - Energy savings targets - State/national deployment mandates - Financial incentives for utilities - Electric vehicles • Th These policies are l li i largely i place l in lSlide 5 Copyright © 2011 eMeter Corp.
