Conference Covers Facility Maintenance, Power Distribution

Finding solutions to energy and power distribution challenges can be difficult, but Square D Services from Schneider Electric is addressing those issues at its annual Energy, Power Distribution and Control Conference, to be held Sept. 11-13, 2007, at the Sheraton Raleigh hotel in Raleigh, North Carolina.

The conference is geared toward anyone involved with facility maintenance or power distribution,and will cover a host of new technologies and service solutions that can help cut facility costs, reduce equipment downtime and keep employees safer. Continuing Education Units (CEUs) will be available upon request.

“The Energy, Power Distribution and Control Conference is a unique, non-competitive learning environment where power distributors and end users can come together to discuss the latest energy, power distribution and control issues and solutions,” said Mike Rice, director of Square D Services. “Presenters are specialists in fields as diverse as electrical distribution, equipment modification, engineering solutions, energy management, automation and control products, and arc flash safety.”

Up-to-date information is crucial to help businesses increase safety, lower life cycle cost and maximize power system reliability. That’s why the Energy, Power Distribution and Control Conference is broken up into several educational tracks geared to provide the latest tips and techniques, tapping the knowledge and experience of specialists from user and supplier organizations through formal and informal sessions. There will also be an element of fun, as an outdoor barbeque with a special Western theme and bluegrass music will be held the evening of Wednesday, Sept. 12.

“Conference attendees benefit in several ways – professional development and advancement, increased recognition of their function’s importance, and exposure to new ideas, contacts and resources,” Rice said. “First-time attendees often discover that many companies face similar, if not identical, technical and organizational problems in their quest for better power systems. They learn there are many common problems, with solutions clustering around universal ideas and attitudes.”
