2006 ESRI Electric and Gas User Group Conference Coming to Albuquerque, New Mexico

Energy Information Group Meets to Discuss GIS for the Industry

September 25, 2006 -- Redlands, California—The 2006 ESRI Electric and Gas User Group (EGUG) Conference is scheduled to take place October 9–12, 2006, in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The EGUG conference is sponsored by ESRI, the world leader in geographic information system (GIS) technology and attended by GIS users who provide utility services, including electric, gas, and water, from generation to distribution. Those attending the conference will learn how they can use GIS to leverage their databases, expand their business systems, and automate workflow processes to improve business practices and decision making.

New Mexico governor Bill Richardson is slated to share his vision about national energy policy in our changing world. Governor Richardson has been credited for implementing the most forward-looking clean energy agenda in the nation. He has been a key supporter of the Clean Energy Development Council.

Public Service Company of New Mexico (PNM) is hosting this year’s event. Joel Ivy, PNM’s vice president of Technical Services, will be presenting at the plenary session. His experience in transmission engineering and operations will lend practical insight about the role technology plays in the future of utilities.

EGUG conference chair Gathen Garcia of PNM says, "GIS gives us the ability to show complex information geographically both within the organization and to our customers. Being members of EGUG helps us stay abreast of what other companies are doing to support/promote GIS efforts within their organizations."

Participants will see GIS solutions that apply to all phases of the energy industry life cycle from generation to distribution and from engineering to marketing. EGUG president Nargis Ladha of Hydro One says, "EGUG serves as an excellent forum for GIS professionals to share GIS experiences and lessons learned across a broad crosssection of gas and electric business disciplines. Through this sharing of ideas and actual implementation experiences, EGUG members can apply what they’ve learned to their own GIS strategies. This approach helps our members adopt best practices and ultimately leads to successful business and technical implementations."
