CES would like to extend heartfelt thanks to everyone who attended the our in-person seminar titled ”Markets Can Be Wicked: Taking the Fright Out of Energy Uncertainty," which was held on Tuesday, October 24 at the University of Southern Maine Albert Brenner Glickman Family Library. We enjoy hosting our seminar programs – virtually and in-person – with the goal of providing timely energy-related topics relevant to our clients and friends. We hope this year’s program answered some of the questions you may have about New England energy markets today – and tomorrow. If you missed the seminar this year, or would like to review this year’s presentation, please feel free to reach out to one of our Energy Services Advisors. Thank you again, and we look forward to seeing you soon!
Energy prices climbed to a decade high last year but have moderated this spring. As we, once again, prepare for the warmer months ahead, we at Competitive Energy Services (CES) have been reflecting on the wild commodity price swings of the past 12 months and thinking about the factors that will impact markets in 2023 and beyond. We’re also pondering the macro trends that are likely to significantly reshape energy markets and how to plan for the inevitable change that’s on the energy horizon. Our upcoming free online energy market seminar, titled “Bridging the Future: Managing the Energy Commodity Transition," will be held on Wednesday, June 7 from Noon – 1:00 p.m. (including Q&A) and will cover timely topics relevant to energy markets, to your business – and to your budget.

In the news, we had heard a lot about solar - confusion strewn by CMP for solar projects seeking to connect to the grid, anger and frustration from the renewable energy industry, and an investigation into CMP launched by the Maine Public Utilities Commission and Governor Janet Mills.
Get it while it's hot! Competitive Energy Services (CES) has been working with over 40 businesses and organizations to take advantage of the significant financial and environmental opportunities offered by solar development in Maine, and we want to share everything we've learned so far. In this webinar, we answered your questions and cover all the basics:
