International Journal of Environment and Sustainable Development (IJESD), Vol. 12, No. 1, 2013

Abstract: This research examines the possibility of the US electric utilities' transition from closed to open systems, while taking steps towards new market orientation. By employing an inductive approach, it observes recent developments in two fronts: first, it observes that more renewable energy sources have been added to the power generation mix, and that utilities advertise their renewable energy related efforts through their websites. Second, it looks at the business environment from the perspective of market orientation. For this, the shifts in the business environment were put under the lens of four driving factors: customer support, regulation, competition, and technology.
