Capital goods procurement is a utility’s second largest expenditure after fuel (an estimated $40 billion on goods alone each year). The utility industry, with its millions of resource-intensive transactions, has been slower than others to adopt electronic supply chain management (SCM), largely due to the apparent prohibitive cost of implementing systems and the difficulty in demonstrating the real savings of e-procurement. Although an estimated 70% of utilities are using electronic fulfillment processes, this can vary from the most basic common purchasing platform to the most sophisticated e-procurement systems. Attend CBI’s Strategic Supply Chain Management for Utilities conference in and learn how to maximize your existing technology and smoothly integrate advanced systems to achieve real savings and efficiencies.

20 speakers from leading companies including AEP, TXU, National Grid USA, PPL Electric Utilities, Pepco Holdings, Inc., PSE&G, Northeast Utilities, KeySpan Energy Delivery, Bonneville Power Administration, JEA and the TVA will discuss best practices in building the business case for and implementing strategic change throughout their organizations. Hear 11 case studies from these market leaders and benchmark your own utility’s performance.

Plus, A panel discussion on optimizing the supply chain through strategic inventory planning, management and reduction will feature perspectives from Memphis Light, Gas & Water; Orlando Utilities Commission and Southern California Edison.
