Nebraska Power Association
Big shifts in Nebraska’s energy markets led NPA to retain EEC to update the organization’s website. NPA needed EEC’s expertise to communicate to its stakeholders how utilities in the Cornhusker State were responding to – and getting ahead of – these industry changes. EEC has maintained and updated the NPA website since its 2011 relaunch.
City of Boulder
As part of an extensive community outreach effort, the City of Boulder, Colorado, relaunched its Boulder’s Energy Future website in early 2013. EEC was retained to help with the relaunch by reorganizing pages and streamlining website navigation by “bite-sizing” the copy.

IIR — The NavigatIIR
Industrial Info Resources is a fast-growing global industrial market intelligence company.

Nebraska Power Association Quarterly Newsletter
After a growing number of Nebraskans expressed interest in electric and environmental issues in their state, the NPA turned to EEC to help it produce a quarterly newsletter. EEC writes the copy and works with a web designer to lay it out and distribute it to NPA’s subscribers.
If your organization has a small marketing budget but a lot of big ideas, producing a thought-leadership article can lead to greater visibility in the utility industry. EEC has written several of these types of articles and detailed Research Notes on strategic trends in the energy industry.
