BURLINGTON, Mass., March 26, 2012 –- The CEO of Delaware Electric Cooperative, Bill Andrew, will be a featured panelist at DNV KEMA's fifth annual Utility of the Future Leadership Forum, “Pathway to excellence.” Andrew will participate in the panel, “Engaging Customers in Sustainability,” during the DNV KEMA forum, May 14–16, 2012, at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Washington, DC.
Andrew will share insights on customers in the cooperative segments and will also highlight methods to further engage customers in practicing sustainability effectively.
"In the cooperative world, our customers are our owners, which provides them with a natural incentive to engage in all programs, especially those which save them money and make good business sense,” said Andrew. “Whenever I can discuss energy, customers, and our business opportunities, it creates an exciting learning opportunity."
The 2012 Utility of the Future Leadership Forum features one and one-half days of discussions about the dynamic changes facing the utility industry and the paths that innovators have taken toward a sustainable energy future. Two CEO panels will explore the challenges of building the future utility in very different economic environments, while other panels will feature topics such as customers at the helm, sustainable power supply, and innovation and the future. Throughout the forum, there will be high-level networking opportunities to share perspectives, collaborate, and engage in dialog.
Senior executives are invited to join their peers in the Utility of the Future discussion to share ideas and discover opportunities that can help shape a more sustainable, reliable, and profitable utility of the future. Register and learn more about the 2012 Utility of the Future Leadership Forum.
