The second Annual Utility Decarbonization Report is here, ranking the decarbonization efforts of the top 47 US IOUs.  In collaboration with Visual Capitalist, the National Public Utilities Council (NPUC) developed the Decarbonization Report, to serve as a comprehensive benchmark for public utilities that will drive the energy transition forward. The report provides utilities,  investors, and customers a data-driven snapshot of the state of clean energy transition among U.S. utilities.
