Every year, new energy and power distribution issues arise as technology evolves, new laws are enacted, and safety requirements change. Yesterday’s solutions to electrical issues might not be current today. That’s why Square D Services by Schneider Electric has created 2010 Energy & Power Distribution Conference Sept. 14-16 at the Hilton Atlanta Airport Hotel in Atlanta. This learning environment will bring industrial, commercial, and utility end users can come together to discuss the latest energy and power distribution issues and solutions.

The conference will cover a host of new technologies and service solutions that can help cut facility costs, reduce equipment downtime, improve equipment reliability, and increase employee safety. Knowledge will be shared through a variety of ‘real world’ case studies, white papers, equipment studies, and new solution presentations. By involving the many specialists from user and supplier organizations with formal and informal sessions, the experience and open dialogue is sure to be rewarding and enjoyable for all who attend.

This conference is designed for anyone involved with facility maintenance, power distribution, or energy management — facility engineers, facility managers, electrical engineers, energy engineers, plant managers, safety officers/managers, consulting specifying engineers, or distributors.

Attendees and their organizations benefit from the conference because new information is critical to help businesses better manage their energy, increase safety, lower life cycle cost, and maximize power and plant system reliability. Attendees will also have an opportunity to network with other professionals in similar companies/industries with like problems.

Conference attendees benefit in three ways: professional development and advancement, increased recognition of their function’s importance, and exposure to new ideas, contacts, and resources. First-time attendees often discover that many companies face similar, if not identical, technical and organizational problems in their quest for better power and control systems. Those still unaware of this often view their situations as unique. However, they learn there are many common problems with solutions centered around mutual ideas and attitudes.

The Square D Services conference will provide insights into new technologies, laws, and safety requirements that can affect your job and your business. For more information on the event, a full agenda and registration please visit: www.regonline.com/epdc2010.

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
