Kevin Haley of the Rocky Mountain Institute, Heather Mulligan of PSE, and Celina Bonugli of the World Resources Institute drew doodles to describe their conception of future utility business customers. Kevin sketched a restaurant-inspired “Corporate Buyer’s Menu”; Heather showed us the relationship between utilities, their business customers, and renewable energy projects; and Celina illustrated a comic strip of a company getting help from its utility to reach renewables goals. So how well did Kevin’s, Heather’s, and Celina’s doodles capture their perspectives? Check out clips from their talks in the videos below!
