Dear Readers,

The month of April was packed full of conferences. Peel Region's Energy Matters Summit and the Green Real Estate Conference were two highlights for me — check out the coverage in this month's e-news and on the website. The sessions I attended reminded me that to create energy efficient businesses requires teamwork, innovative thinking, and a really good base knowledge of your assets. ENEX09 will help you bolster this knowledge. Visit the website for updates on the conference program
