SUGAR LAND, TX--(Marketwire - May 9, 2012) - Written by John Egan for Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas) -- The outlook for capital and maintenance spending in North America's Electric Power Industry has been shifted dramatically over the last 12 months by legislative and regulatory decisions, operational issues and fuel prices, Brock Ramey, Industrial Info's manager of research for the North American Power Industry, said in an exclusive "Navigating the Currents of Change" webcast. These changes likely will affect billions of dollars in power-related project spending and reshape the U.S. generating fleet.
It's been a busy year, Ramey said: Assumptions have shifted, regulations have been issued and the Power Industry faces a future very different from the one envisioned only 12 months ago. That's why Ramey encourages industry participants to attend two important industry events:
- Electric Power 2012, May 15-17, in Baltimore, Maryland. Members of the Industrial Info team will be at Booth 1313.
- WINDPOWER 2012, the national conference of the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) (Washington, D.C.) will be held June 3-6 in Atlanta, Georgia. Industrial Info will be exhibiting at Booth 6640.
"During uncertain times like we have now, it is more important than ever to network with your colleagues so you stay current on critical strategic issues," Ramey said. "Electric Power and WINDPOWER are two events that should be on every power professional's calendar. That's why we're going to be exhibiting there."
