Caroline Taylor, UB Editor and Marketing Manager at SBGI said:

“We are really excited about the re-launch of Utility Business Magazine.  We are building on the publication’s current quality content but making it much more feature driven and bringing in contribution from business leaders and energy industry experts. Our Spring Issue focuses on Security of Supply – asking whether Shale Gas will be a game changer and reviewing the BritNed Electricity Interconnector as diversified energy sources -and the Regulatory and Smart Metering Updates should be a valuable source of information for our members and wider readership. We welcome feature suggestions, so please do not hesitate to get in touch regarding future issues”.
