Matt Mooren, an energy markets expert at PA Consulting Group, discusses M&A activity in the utility sector. 

The article notes that the industry saw $68.2 billion of acquisitions in 2017, the most in a decade, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. 

Matt says: “It’s difficult to have a publicly traded, independent-power producer because of the focus on short-term earnings from a Wall Street point of view.”

He adds: “With low gas prices and renewables entering the market, that has made the earnings environment a bit more difficult.”
