The highly anticipated enhancements of the UPLAN software, which provides comprehensive planning facilities for analyzing many new issues facing electricity market participants, brought out a large number of attendees representing nearly 20 organizations. The conference offered all users, both old hands and beginners, a unique opportunity for networking and exchanging information on many new market developments.

Held at the Parc 55 Hotel near San Francisco's famed financial district, the two-day affair provided a forum for UPLAN users from various sectors of the industry to share their knowledge and experience.
