The Solar Electric Power Association (SEPA), an educational non-profit focused on helping utilities integrate solar electric power into their energy portfolios, is partnering with the ScottMadden Management Consultants to conduct a benchmarking study on renewable energy organizational structure within North American electric utilities.

SEPA and ScottMadden will be studying how much work effort utilities put into management renewable energy and how strategic development and tactical execution is impacted by organizational chart structures. The analysis will also provide a baseline for annual research to track progress and evolution of utility best practices.

"This is a first-of-its-kind study that will examine how different utilities organize their renewable energy groups and functions," said Eran Mahrer, SEPA's Executive Vice President of Research & Strategy. "The hope is that we can provide best practices on how these two areas can be optimized for maximum efficiency."

Utilities participating in the benchmarking study will receive a detailed report and all SEPA members will be provided an overview of the findings. Summary results will also be presented at the Utility Solar Conference, taking place April 29 – 30, 2014, in Newport Beach, California.
