Welcome to Decentralized Energy’s new Industry Update e-newsletter, which will be published on the second and fourth Wednesday of every month.
This e-newsletter is the latest development in Decentralized Energy’s 15-year history.
At the start of the year, we rebranded Cogeneration & On-Site Power Production ‘Decentralized Energy’ and now the title has transitioned to a fully on-line resource aimed at providing the most up-to-date and useful information for everyone involved in the distributed generation and CHP sectors.
The Industry Update e-newsletter not only features the latest industry news, but will also have technical articles, market analysis, opinion pieces, etc., making it a single authoritative information source.
The new e-newsletter replaces the Decentralized Energy magazine, which was published every two months, so you will now receive the content you want in in a more timely way.
Furthermore, with 24 issues annually, the Decentralized Energy Industry Update also offers plenty of opportunities to publish contributed editorial and reader-suggested content.
So what primarily is driving this change?
It is fair to say the media industry is undergoing a revolution, primarily driven by the way audiences want to receive and consume content.
The unprecedented switch from print resources to the digital environment is well-documented, and studies conducted with our audience strongly demonstrate that our readers are moving in the digital direction and prefer to read, research and evaluate much of their information online.
Interestingly, we are also seeing a significant uptick in the number of people viewing and interacting with the Decentralized Energy’s website via a mobile device – between July 2015 and July 2016 it almost doubled.
Thus, we have ensured that the Decentralized Energy Industry Update has a mobile-friendly design that allows the audience to view the news and articles not only on their computers, but on all mobile devices, including smartphones.
The Decentralized Energy Update is therefore one of the most mobile sources of industry information and news around.
My team and I are very excited about the opportunities that this change will bring to Decentralized Energy, and we hope that you will continue to be a part of our audience going forward.
