The SPi Group’s CEO, Ven Seshadri, will participate at Smart Metering Canada 2008, taking the lead in a pre-conference workshop on Monday, February 25 as well as moderating a critical panel discussion focusing on the partnerships between utilities and equipment suppliers.

In that role, he led the company’s finance and operations functions, including managing the rollout of SPi’s EBT Hub services through Ontario’s retail electricity market deregulation process in 2002.
