Dennis Arriola is the CEO of AVANGRID.
Dan Hahn leads the Energy Providers practice within Guidehouse’s global Energy, Sustainability, and Infrastructure segment.
Utilities are heavily invested in a decarbonization journey as a pathway to a clean energy future for their customers and the communities they serve. More utilities are setting net-zero targets by 2050 or earlier. They will need to change their strategy, investment and divestiture plans, business and regulatory models, products and services, and operations and people to capitalize on the opportunities of their decarbonization journey.
Recently, we, meaning PUF's Steve Mitnick and Guidehouse's Dan Hahn, talked with an inspiring utility CEO about what he is doing to help customers decarbonize, the impacts, and the most promising paths to decarbonization for the companies and customers.
We heard from AVANGRID's CEO Dennis Arriola, on his perspectives and tangible actions the company is taking to meet decarbonization and customers' decarbonization goals. We hope you find the conversation interesting and meaningful as you think about how you are helping your customers decarbonize for the future. - Dan Hahn of Guidehouse
PUF's Steve Mitnick: What's exciting in the AVANGRID world?
Dennis Arriola: I joined the company at a strange time in our nation's history. It's been an atypical onboarding process because during the first month before I relocated, we managed by Zoom and Teams videos.
