The Energy Management Technical Advisory Group (EM TAG) had their first conference call (ID Session) on August 29, 2011. Sixteen full TAG members as well as 12 corresponding (non-voting) members attended. It was a very impressive collection of experts, a number of them having 25-35 years of relevant experience. They took turns suggesting new and emerging energy management technologies, and suggested over 50 in all. These are now being reviewed and collated and will be ranked by the TAG this month. The top technologies will then be the focus of secondary research.
