Retail energy aggregator, broker and consultant Atlas Retail Energy, an Iapetus Holdings company, announces Matthew Stasium, Director of Strategic Relationships, will be a speaker on the Energy Marketing Conferences’ (EMC) EMC19 on “The Broker and Supplier Panel”, to be held March 20-21, 2023 at the Hilton Post Oak in Houston, Texas. The Theme of EMC19 is “Surviving and Thriving During Turbulent Times”.
EMC, the largest and longest-running gathering of retail energy executives in North America, brings together hundreds of energy companies, utilities, marketers, vendors, and suppliers in the retail energy industry to engage, educate and empower the competitive energy market and help shape its future. The Energy Marketing Conference's (EMC) mission is to provide the competitive energy industry with exciting conferences and build a community. Every year, EMC takes place in Houston and New York City. The spring and fall two-day packed agendas feature more than 50 thought leaders who speak on over a dozen sessions and panels. Hundreds of energy industry professionals gather to network at the annual energy conference. The EMC trade show and exhibitor hall count over 40 exhibitor booths.
On the “Broker and Supplier Panel”, representatives from the broker, the supplier, and the utility perspective will discuss the customer focus and collaboration to move the industry forward. Stasium’s fellow panel speakers include Andrew Barth, Partner at CSD Energy Advisors, Jeff Colvin, EVP Sales, Shell Energy, Geno Cortina, SVP at Freepoint Energy Solutions and Trent Stout, Senior Managing Director, Priority Power. The panel’s moderator will be Ananda Goswami from VertexOne. This year, the EMC19 keynote speaker will be David M. Black, CEO of Shell Energy Solutions.
Stasium stated, “I am honored to sit along fellow leaders in the industry leveraging an extensive history and wealth of knowledge in the space. The energy markets are extremely fluid in recent times. It takes innovative and thought-provoking discussions like the one EMC has put together, to find the best solutions for the clients of the future. Working together, collaborating on ideas, and pushing our industry forward has always been a key focus for me and the Atlas team. I know this panel will be exciting and one the attendees won’t want to miss.”
As reported by Infocast, deregulated markets, also known as competitive energy markets, have opened generation for competition from independent power producers in 24 states, such as California, Texas and most states in the Northeast. 18 of these states plus Washington D.C. have also introduced “retail choice”, which allows residential and/or industrial consumers to choose their own electricity provider. Customers benefit from more competitive rates and generation options, including renewable energy.
In the words of Atlas Retail Energy President, Steve Roberson, “Deregulated markets offer many options when shopping for an energy supplier. Commercial and industrial customers ideally should have a clear understanding of how to optimize their energy mix, the terms they’re committing to and how to efficiently leverage green alternatives. Price is important, yet all the factors should be weighed when making decisions around energy, often one of the highest and most volatile operating costs for most businesses. At Atlas Retail Energy, we thrive on being on the forefront with fellow thought leaders on how to set customers up for success in their energy choices.”
