LONDON,  March 20, 2013  /PRNewswire/ --

The utilities industry faced significant challenges in 2012 due to increasing
pressure to meet environmental regulations and to upgrade their existing
infrastructure. Utilities such as CenterPoint Energy Inc. (NYSE: CNP), Exelon
Corporation (NYSE: EXC), Public Service Enterprise Group Inc. (NYSE: PEG),
Ameren Corp. (NYSE: AEE), and Just Energy Group Inc. (NYSE: JE) are expected to
see an increase in costs as they upgrade their infrastructure. Meanwhile, it
will be interesting to see whether utilities continue their shift from coal to
natural gas for power generation. Utilities ended mostly higher on Tuesday even
as the broad market struggled amid concerns over  Cyprus's  bailout agreement.
