From the Editor

Welcome to the September 2015 issue of USAEE Dialogue!  In this issue we’re pleased to present the following articles:

The content of USAEE Dialogue is entirely dependent upon member input and, as ever, we are appreciative of these contributions by our colleagues. Now as we return from our summer holidays and re-focus our attention onto business and academic pursuits, USAEE members are encouraged to share their research and professional experiences as well as to comment on current energy issues. In particular, and with our North American Conference in Pittsburgh near at hand, members who will be making presentations during that conference next month are invited to submit summaries of their presentations for inclusion in the January 2016 issue of USAEE Dialogue. The deadline for input to that issue is Nov. 30, 2015.  Members interested in contributing articles or summaries should contact me well in advance of the deadline to allow sufficient time for editorial consideration. Guidelines for article submission may be found at http://www.usaee.org/pdf/blog/Dialogue_Article_Submission_Guidelines.pdf.  

Lastly, in our continuing effort to improve USAEE Dialogue I welcome your comments and suggestions. I look forward to your e-mails and to visiting with you at our annual conference in Pittsburgh.
