LODESTAR Corporation, a provider of energy software solutions, has announced its first quarter topics of the 2006 Online Seminar Series. These seminars are open to LODESTAR’s customers and partners, as well as other energy professionals who are leaders in their field.

Demand response programmes have created many challenges for utilities, and several of these issues will be addressed in this quarter’s seminar series. LODESTAR experts will provide overviews of how these initiatives are affecting the billing, settlement, pricing and forecasting functions of a utility, and how LODESTAR software works to solve these issues.

The company also offers educational seminars to its customer base, giving delegates an opportunity to learn about new products and features, as well as to maximise the use of their software by experiencing areas of a product they may not have not about.
