With this issue of Smart Energy International we have given the publication a facelift to refresh it. Starting with this issue also, we are gathering together in one place the smart energy contributions under the Smart Energy International title. This will enable us to expand our coverage to encompass the whole smart energy field, and also it will enable us to publish this section as a stand-alone publication for the broader readership. As such we will also be able to better support our growing worldwide portfolio of smart energy events. We look forward to the support of the industry in moving forward with this venture, and as always welcome your input and comments.
