Constellation Energy Resources COO a Featured Speaker at KEMA Utility of the Future Leadership Forum 2010

Kathi Hyle to Offer Insight Into Balancing Generation Assets, Emissions and Environment for a Sustainable Energy Future

BURLINGTON, MA--(Marketwire - June 15, 2010) -  Constellation Energy Senior Vice President and COO of Constellation Energy Resources Kathleen Hyle will be a featured speaker at KEMA's third annual Utility of the Future Leadership Forum, "Strategic Choices -- Striking Equilibrium." Hyle will join energy and utility industry CEOs on a panel discussion on achieving a balance across prime fuels, conversion technologies and environmental pressures at the KEMA forum, being held June 23 - 25, 2010 at The Four Seasons, Washington, DC.

Hyle oversees the operations and strategic direction of the company's commercial businesses and its non-nuclear and renewables generation fleet. This includes the nation's leading customer supply business, Constellation NewEnergy, which provides energy services and solutions to wholesale and retail customers, a commodities portfolio management and trading operation and a diversified fleet of generating units located in the United States and Canada.

Constellation Energy is a leading supplier of energy products and services and a major generator of electricity. It has a balanced strategy to generate power through a national fleet of plants, and to distribute power through BGE, its regulated utility in Maryland, and through its national competitive supply business. The Constellation Energy generation fleet is strategically located in markets across the country and is diversified by fuel type, including nuclear, coal, gas and renewable sources.

"The very nature of electric generation intrinsically links our business closely to natural resources and environment," said Hyle. "Constellation Energy has made major environmental investments and improvements at its generation facilities -- spending more than $1 billion over the last few years on emission-reducing equipment and upgrades at its facilities and continues to evaluate new technologies to make our air cleaner. Setting the vision forward and achieving a balance across our generation prime fuel base, conversion technologies and environmental pressures are at the heart of successfully moving ahead into a sustainable energy future." 

KEMA's annual Utility of the Future leadership series is gathering industry executives, senior financial analysts, government officials and other utility stakeholders to discuss strategic directions in balancing changing customer expectations, technologies and environmental policies and regulations. Leaders and innovators across the energy industry will take part in discussions focused on customer engagement, investment strategy, regulatory policy and the state of carbon and environmental issues, and they will explore strategic views of what a sustainable, intelligent infrastructure will look like.

Senior executives are invited to join their peers in the Utility of the Future discussion to share ideas and discover opportunities to shape a more sustainable, reliable and profitable utility of the future. Throughout the event, forum participants will have high-level networking opportunities to share perspectives, collaborate and engage in dialogue.
