Webinar – SoCalGas Case Study: Integrating Environmental and Social Justice into Asset Investment Decisions

Southern California Gas (SoCalGas) is the largest natural gas distribution utility in the US, delivering clean, safe, and reliable energy to 21.1 million customers as the primary provider of natural gas in Southern California.

New and evolving regulatory requirements related to Environmental and Social Justice (ESJ) mean utilities must consider a wider set of criteria in their decision-making processes to develop more equitable asset investment plans.

In this webinar, Maya Menon, Asset and Data Strategy Manager at SoCalGas, Ning Chou, Program Manager at SoCalGas, and David Wu, Pipelines Practice Lead at Copperleaf, discussed:

  • How the current regulatory environment is impacting utilities, and the increasing need to demonstrate positive ESJ impacts of investment decisions
  • How SoCalGas’s Enterprise Asset Management team plans to use asset data and an enterprise value framework to help business units develop investment plans that meet regulatory requirements and ESJ-related objectives
