The primary goal is to provide a networking and professional development forum for mid-level staff of energy utilities serving California and neighboring states who are responsible for developing and implementing customer programs related to energy efficiency, renewable energy, key account management, customer service and demand response.

Who should Attend? Utility managers, utility marketers, energy managers, energy services directors, marketing managers, key account representatives, and other interested parties who need to know about the latest trends in the re-regulated utility industry.
