Many regulators and political decision-makers are considering policy initiatives for reducing GHG emissions from the energy sector. But too often they seem to have tunnel vision on the various technology pathways available to achieve GHG emission reduction goals, favoring a particular set of technologies above others.

The Western Energy Institute, a prominent industry organization including all major electric utilities, gas utilities and pipelines in western North America, recently hosted a panel discussion on the topic of "What are the best decarbonization pathways for our customers?" The discussion was featured on the cover Western Energy magazine this spring. The article summarizes and draws conclusions on points of policy consensus across the utility industry on the decarbonization set of issues.
