In the aftermath of the hurricane season and the disruptions in international energy supply, the energy industry continues to undergo more changes than any other industry in America. The future of our economy, environment and national security depends on our energy independence. As an energy professional, you need the latest information to help you cope with changing regulations, rising costs, supply shortages, and the resulting challenges you face every day. You also need to be fully aware of new technologies that can help you improve your job performance as well as meet (indeed... exceed!) your organization’s mission-critical energy goals.


Energy industry colleagues have developed a professional development forum, encompassing two days, which will attract top energy experts from around the nation to help you learn the best ways to do your job.   Featured Speaker:  Tim Unruh, Director, Federal Energy Management Program, DOE.
