HOUSTON, Oct. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- David Braun, Regional Vice President of Sales-Midwest for GDF SUEZ Energy Resources, will speak at the 2012 Pennsylvania Energy Management Conference on Thursday, October 11, in Harrisburg, PA. 


Braun, who has more than two decades of experience in the energy and utilities industry, oversees commercial, industrial, and institutional retail electricity sales in MISO and PJM for the company. He will speak as part of a panel discussion titled, "Electricity Purchasing…Using Heat Rates and Block and Index Contracts to Take Advantage of the Shale Gas Boom." The session will be held at 1:45 p.m. at the Hilton Harrisburg & Towers. 

"The continued development of the Marcellus and Utica shale plays is driving a number of clean-burning energy opportunities for Pennsylvania commercial and industrial electricity buyers," explained Braun.
