PORTLAND, Maine – Smart Energy Decisions (SED), the first web-based information resource dedicated to addressing the information needs of large power customers, last week held the spring edition of the Net Zero Forum in San Antonio, TX.

“Net Zero Forum Spring showcased just how critical peer learning, up-to-date industry information, and the right vendor relationships are for advancing energy and sustainability professionals’ Net Zero goals,” said Wes Doane, Vice President, Smart Energy Decisions. “It was great to see the connections made between buyers and suppliers throughout the event.”
