Global Power Industry Facing Many Challenges Entering 2009, a Feature of "Navigating the Currents of Change" on

SUGAR LAND, TX--(Marketwire - December 1, 2008) - Researched by Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas) -- Over the past several years the global Power Industry has maintained strong and steady growth in project spending. This growth has been driven by the constant worldwide increase in demand for electrical power, more stringent environmental regulations in the United States and abroad, as well as by healthy spending programs dedicated to the modernization and maintenance of the existing generation fleet. With the world facing an economic downturn and possible recession, power producers are in the midst of developing the most viable strategies to address changing load-demand projections. The landscape for environmental compliance project spending is taking new shape as even tougher regulations seem inevitable.

In this week's "Navigating the Currents of Change" webcast, Industrial Info will present a discussion on leading Power Industry trends with two of Industrial Info's industry experts: Shane Mullins, Vice President for Product Development; and Britt Burt, Vice President for Research for the Power Industry. During this time, they will discuss the key driving factors behind project spending for the industry in 2009 and beyond. Key points of discussion will include the growth in renewable energy sources, the outlook for development of new coal-fired generation and nuclear energy sources, the ever-changing environmental landscape and other challenges the industry faces for the future.
