Energy Policy Officials, Suppliers and Technologists Discuss the
Convergence of Energy, Telecom and Digital Technologies and the Benefits
The National Energy Marketers Association (NEM) is pleased to announce
that it will convene its first New England Energy Policy Summit in
Cambridge, Massachusetts on October 12-14, 2015. New England energy
policy officials together with leading energy suppliers and distributed
energy resource providers, technologists, and academicians will convene
to discuss innovative, reliable and affordable ways to meet the current
and future energy needs of both large and small energy consumers.
“The convergence of energy, telecommunications and digital technologies
in competitive energy markets is set to bring a seismic change in the
array of energy product and service offerings available to consumers as
well as yield significant growth in consumer value. This phenomenon is
driven by the demands of the increasingly mobile lifestyle of the modern
consumer, coupled with the desire to empower and increasingly engage
consumers in their energy purchasing and usage decisions. Consumers are
also increasingly concerned with being good stewards of the environment.
NEM is pleased that its members are on the cutting-edge of meeting these
consumer demands and that they will share their valuable insights at the
Summit,” said Craig Goodman, President of NEM.
“Our nation is also facing significant utility infrastructure
constraints. Technology is the key to achieving a cost-effective,
reliable upgrade to our energy delivery infrastructure. NEM’s New
England Energy Policy Summit will gather a diverse group of policy
officials, energy suppliers and technologists to identify innovative
solutions to meet this “reliability gap” and how to forge an exciting,
growth path that lies ahead for our industry,” said Goodman.
The National Energy Marketers Association (NEM) is a national,
non-profit trade association representing wholesale and retail marketers
of natural gas, electricity, as well as energy and financial related
products, services, information and advanced technologies throughout the
United States, Canada, and the European Union. Additional information
