Facility owners and corporate officers will learn what to expect on the energy front and how to develop effective strategies to compete in 2002 at an upcoming address to be presented by Richard Costello, principal of Energy Consulting Services for Siemens Building Technologies, Inc. The keynote address will kick off “Facility Strategies 2002 – Energy,” an invitation-only symposium to be held in Baltimore on Mar. 7, 2002.

Titled “National Energy Outlook,” the presentation will encompass key market factors, such as natural gas supply, storage and demand, commodity pricing trends, legislative and regulatory directions for utility industry restructuring, and purchasing methodologies and their potential impact on large energy user organizations. Costello will also unveil strategies to help uncover new opportunities for energy and cost savings, and to better prepare organizations to manage uncertainties and risks. Senior executives, vice presidents, directors, and key decision makers interested in developing energy cost containment strategies are invited to attend this event.
