Dear readers,

Welcome to the September Energy Management e-newsletter. I've just returned from Energy Excellence 2008 (ENEX08), which took place at Stage West in Mississauga. We had a packed program, and a packed house for this inaugural event focused on energy efficiency in manufacturing. If you weren't able to make it this year, watch for coverage of the event in the next issue of Energy Management, and announcements about ENEX09 soon!

If you have any comments or questions about what you see in the magazine or in this e-newsletter, please don't hesitate to contact me at
