HOUSTON, Dec. 12, 2000 (PRNewswire) PennWell Publications, a leading energy industry publications powerhouse, announced today the launch of its newest magazine, The New Energy Economy, a bimonthly publication covering energy's latest pioneering news and views in the electronic world of networked technologies in both the upstream and downstream markets.
The magazine, which will publish and distribute its inaugural Jan./Feb. issue beginning in 2001, offers valuable industry-insider insights and savvy bottom-line business support to anyone currently participating or considering participation in energy's e-commerce and network technologies arenas.
The publication's coverage will include breaking business-to-business (B2B) news, top-level executive interviews, special industry reports, and bimonthly upstream, generation, trading and retail articles written by the industry's most respected oil, natural gas and electric reporters and professionals.
Heading up The New Energy Economy is veteran energy journalist Roxane Richter. With over a decade of reporting and editing experience, Richter brings her energy-specific industry expertise in digital exchanges, trading, risk and information technology (IT) systems to the publication and its readers. As the former Energy Marketing and Customer Systems Editor for PennWell's Electric Light & Power magazine, Richter promises to report only on relevant, newsworthy issues and help industry professionals uncover the "hidden values and views" of network IT systems and participation in energy's upstream and downstream online marketplaces.
The magazine's launch is a targeted response to the energy industry's overwhelming support of the "Energy Economy" conference held in September of 2001. PennWell will again offer this successful industry gathering in September in Houston. A record turnout of more than a thousand utility and energy industry leaders from IT/IS, e-procurement, financial, supply chain, digital exchange, e-CRM/CIS and e-leadership positions are expected to attend the e-commerce up- and downstream sessions and special events.
