Sanem Sergici to Present at Smart Grid Consumer Collaborative Members Meeting & Interactive Workshop

Brattle Principal Sanem Sergici will participate in the Smart Grid Consumer Collaborative’s (SGCC) 2016 Members Meeting & Interactive Workshop, taking place September 21-22, 2016 at ComEd’s headquarters in Chicago, IL.

The program will feature Anne Pramaggiore, President and CEO of ComEd, who will illustrate the company’s plans for future smart grid programs for consumers. Panels and presentations will also cover industry topics such as: customer engagement successes, exploring SGCC’s strategy, smart grid market trends, today’s energy consumer, and utility pricing structures.

Dr. Sergici will present during the session, “Changing Utility Pricing Structures: What's Better for Consumers: Residential Demand Rate vs. Volumetric Flat Rate vs. Time Varying Rates.” She will discuss alongside other panelists her point of view about the best way to approach issues related to changing how customers pay for electricity. Questions for debate include: should customers who use more expensive power during the day pay extra; and how can low-income customers be protected from expensive electricity prices while the industry makes needed reforms to price electricity accurately?
