As large utilities evolve and modernize, a new type of professional is emerging to oversee the transition. Strategic innovation professionals help drive utilities’ adoption of innovative technologies and business models.
Hilary Pearson, key manager of energy and environmental policy at Exelon Utilities, works in the field. Exelon serves 10 million people and operates six utilities in Illinois, Maryland, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware and Washington, D.C.
Pearson works with stakeholders inside and outside of Exelon to guide high-level policy developments that can help the utility decarbonize.
