Power & Utilities - Top Firms

Hey Everyone,

First time poster here, so please excuse if I may have overlooked any past relevant threads. 

I am in the process of developing a deeper understanding for the IB and Developer opportunities within the Power & Utilities industry. What are the key players within this sector and what is the best strategy for penetrating associate position opportunities within such firms? For background, I am a Project Engineer (Engineer/Project Management Role) for a leading Engineering Consultant firm servicing the Power & Utilities sector. My ultimate goal is to transition to a role targeted to support the business strategy & financing of large infrastructure projects. 

This is a very high-level and preliminary question, but to further expand on my first question: What Associate/1st Year opportunities in this sector are there for MBA graduates from a top 10/25 ranked school? I'd like to start creating a list of key firms rooted in this industry and target roles for post-MBA employment.

Wells Fargo's Energy and Power coverage group is also phenomenal, definitely one of their strongest coverage groups per league tables as long as you don't mind working in Charlotte/Houston.
