The Energy Solutions Center Inc. is a trade association of energy utilities that promotes the utilization of new gas-fueled equipment for commercial, industrial, and residential applications, thanks you for agreeing to speak to our membership at our upcoming Technology and Market Assessment Forum.
The opportunity to speak before the TMAF has led to many successful partnerships between the nation’s gas utilities and vendors of gas-fired equipment. The Center raises funds to help demonstrate gas equipment at customer locations around the country, and produces marketing support materials to help equipment manufacturers and utilities more successfully penetrate their markets. Our members are anxious to support and promote new gas-fueled equipment being developed by companies such as yours.
We sincerely hope that you are as excited about this opportunity as we are. The nation’s largest utilities are anxious to meet with you at TMAF and to join you in marketing new gas-fueled technologies to thousands of customers.
All speakers must register for the TMAF.

Your presentation is the most vital part of your participation in the event. We have put together a guideline to help you tailor your presentation to our group. If you are a manufacturer, please read the guidelines and suggestions thoroughly. We have put all our past experiences into the development of these guidelines to help you MAXIMIZE this opportunity. We have noticed that speakers who do not follow these guidelines tend to score much lower on the survey results. We want to help you make the most of the time you are given and we welcome the chance to talk to you more in detail about what should be in the presentation.
We do ask you to upload the presentation by Tuesday, September 23, 2014 so that we have time to review and suggest changes if needed.
All requested changes to presentations will be provided a required by date as we compile the meeting presentations into a master file to ensure that our agenda runs smoothly throughout the day. Changes on-site can cause quite a disruption and therefore, cannot be accommodated.
3. PRESENTATION COPIES
Please bring 50-75 copies of handouts for the attendees. We recommend that these are double sided black and white copies and should contain 3-6 slides per page with a section for attendees to take notes. They are used mostly for taking notes as you make your presentation. All presentations are made available to attendees after the meeting, so full color full page print outs are not necessary.
We would like to collect a 3-4 sentence bio from you for introductions. Please submit your biography by Monday, September 15, 2014 to provide us time to have it published in the TMAF Booklet.
