Premier Alliance Selected to Present at 2013 World Energy Engineering Congress in Washington, D.C.
CHARLOTTE, NC, Jul 16, 2013 (Marketwired via COMTEX) --
Premier Alliance Group, Inc., (OTCQB: PIMO) a leading provider of
business performance, compliance and energy management solutions,
today announced that its Energy and Sustainability Division has been
selected to present at the 2013 World Energy Engineering Congress
(WEEC) in Washington, D.C. in September.
A paper authored by Premier Alliance's engineering team and lead by
Rob Davis, Senior Vice President of Energy Services, on the
scalability of Demand Response applications was submitted to the
Association of Energy Engineers (AEE) during its call for papers for
the 2013 WEEC. The paper was accepted and Mr. Davis was asked to
present during the event and sit on a discussion panel regarding
Demand Response and its impact on the utility industry.
The Demand Response services market was estimated to be in excess of
$1.3 billion in 2011, and is expected to grow rapidly according to a
leading research firm. Demand Response refers to a rapidly evolving
utility application, otherwise referred to as the "smart grid". It
encompasses hardware, software and services, and is catalyzing
Premier Alliance's Energy Services division and should continue to
generate strong growth going forward.
The WEEC is a well-recognized annual event for end users and energy
professionals in all areas of the energy field. It is the one truly
comprehensive forum where you can fully assess the "big picture" and
see exactly how the economic and market forces, new technologies,
regulatory developments and industry trends all merge to shape
critical decisions on an organization's energy and economic future.
"We couldn't be more proud of Rob and his team for this outstanding
recognition," said Mark Elliott, CEO of Premier Alliance. "The World
Energy Engineering Congress is one of the most important energy
related events of the year with both national and international
impact. The fact that our paper was selected among all the applicants
is yet another testament to our energy team's outstanding reputation
in the industry."
