    Why:   Learn best practices for managing energy risk


    Purchasing energy has always carried some level of risk, but the forward
market movements we've seen in 2008 have made energy purchasing even more
challenging. As such, it's never been more important for businesses and state
and local governments to carefully consider their risk management strategies
and insulate themselves from continued market volatility.
    You're invited to attend World Energy's complimentary webinar as Bill
Yeager, Market Director and Certified Energy Procurement specialist, discusses
strategies for mitigating risks associated with fluctuating commodity prices.
Bill will also identify other risk factors inherent in energy markets such as
administrative, credit and physical risks and cite specific examples of how
organizations have successfully managed them.
