In this episode we look at the energy transition from the perspective of one of its key players—the Consumer Advocate. My guest is Elin Katz, Connecticut's Consumer Counsel and the current president of NASUCA, the National Association of State Utility Consumer Advocates. We first explore broadly what the consumer's interest is; then we look at energy storage and electric vehicles; and we close by contemplating the convergence of utilities such as electricity and telecom, and how the focus of the Advocate may continue to evolve in the future.
