Denver, CO, January 23, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- The launch of V1 Energy by Vector1 Media promises to expand the dialogue about sustainable energy options and the future of the global energy markets.
V1 Energy is the second publication by Vector1 Media after the successful V1 Magazine, an online publication that focuses on the application of geospatial technology on sustainability problems. Vector1 Media brings a unique international focus with editors in Europe and North America.
Jeff Thurston of Berlin, Germany was formerly editor of GeoInformatics and GeoConnexion magazines, both with distribution primarily in Europe. Matt Ball was formerly editor of GeoWorld magazine with primary distribution in North America. The two bring a broad editorial experience with a focus on holistic application of tools and technologies toward sustainability issues.
The pair will deliver a regular online V1 Energy magazine, a weekly V1 News e-newsletter and a daily V1 Energy Blog. This new integrated media organization can be found at the website, www.v1energy.com.
The goal of Vector1 Media is to realize the principle of sustainable living through successful and sustainable economic development. Vector1 Media pushes for the adoption of renewable energy and integrated spatially-based systems and knowledge where advances can be achieved with high-impact returns.
“We bring a unique perspective on energy as the editors of technology-centric publications that deal with large systems and integrative technology,” said Matt Ball. “We both feel that there are distinct opportunities in the energy sector for greater efficiencies and technologies that can reduce the impact that we place on our planet.”
V1 Energy will explore the areas of biomass, coal, geothermal, hydro, nuclear, oil and gas, solar, wave/tidal and wind power. Our focus will be on winning strategies and technologies that advance efficiency and profitability while reducing emissions.
“V1 Energy emerged as a result of our previous publishing activity that often involved the topic of energy from the infrastructure and building side of the equation,” stated Jeff Thurston. “A transition is rapidly taking place around the world as both renewable and traditional forms of energy are being pursued with a view to continued supply and sustainability. The impacts of these changes will connect to the changes in how people live, the support systems they need and the sustainable energy strategies they seek.”
