Can't see the here.


Dear readers:

As the new Editor of Energy Management, I welcome all EM readers to my first e-newsletter.

My first week as Editor has been an exciting one. In Ontario, possibilities in community power and renewable energy are starting to open up as the provincial government's Green Energy Act and Feed-in Tariff program go full steam ahead. This was the central topic of discussion at the MaRS Community Finance Power Forum held in Toronto, an event that introduced entrepreneurs to energy innovators. For more on this and other recent stories, check out the news items below.

If you have any editorial suggestions or ideas on how to improve the EM website, feel free to contact me. I am eager to hear your comments.
