A world beyond recession

In the space of the past 12 months, utility companies have found themselves in a very different world with a series of momentous events – the collapse of giants of the banking system, the credit and wider financial crisis, the reversal in demand and price growth, and outright recession in many major markets.

A world beyond recession looks at the impact of the events of the past year, through the views of senior utility company executives, and ahead at the world that lies beyond the downturn.
