Obama Vs. Romney: Sizing Up The Electric Industry's Winners And Losers


Shared on August 16, 2012 written by Doug Houseman via Smart Grid

Having looked at the Energy Policy Guidelines on both President Barack Obama's website and that of former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, the one thing that is for sure is that they lack details. But that said, it's still worthwhile to sort out the winners and losers in the electric industry under each person as president (assuming that they could get all of their energy policy in place).

The results are pretty stark. The positions of both candidates, while light in detail, point to very different winners and losers. It is slightly surprising to see how different the policies really are when you look at them in a winners/losers context as I have done below. (In all cases, the winners and losers described here focus on U.S. based companies. What will happen to foreign companies and their exports to the U.S. is not part of this analysis.)
