With the recent signing of the Energy Policy Act of 2005, Itron Inc. will host two online seminars to help understand some of the sweeping legislation in the policy. The measure includes directives that relate specifically to time-based rates for electricity, demand response, and the metering technology required to support the initiatives.
The energy policy will have a significant impact on utilities and will change the relationships between utilities and regulators and will change how utility customers are served. Itron has scheduled two online seminars to help utilities understand, prepare for, and manage these directives. The free 60-minute presentations will be hosted by Ben Boyd, director of regulatory affairs at Itron, Emmett Kelly, vice president of Itron’s regulatory affairs, and Randi Neilson, vice president of marketing. All three have followed the issue for the past few years.
The first seminar was held Tuesday, August 30th, and will be repeated on Tuesday, September 13 at 1 pm Eastern Standard Time. Online registration is available.
