 The symposium was developed for business managers, purchasing managers, energy managers and facilities managers and designed to provide the information necessary to help these disciplines understand the options available within the market.

 “The symposium program was very useful in part because it helped form a basis for dialogue within the member organizations and companies to formulate or improve energy management efforts and saving money,” commented Mr. Parker. “We presented the perspective of an unbiased advisor and highlighted the value an advisor can bring to an energy purchaser.”

 Also speaking at the symposium was the governor of Rhode Island, the Honorable Lincoln Chafee, and a representative of ISO-New England.
