Wholesale posted its second best quarter ever, executing major electricity and natural gas buys for utilities in the Northeast, Midwest and Mid-Atlantic
Government supported the 19th RGGI auction and continued to grow the Federal Government's Natural Gas Acquisition Program (NGAP)
Mid-market experienced strong sales in the Southwest, key renewals in the Northeast
Energy Efficiency Services:

"We delivered strong results in the first quarter, despite the challenges of rising commodity prices and the previously announced changes to our mid-market business," said Phil Adams, CEO of World Energy Solutions. "Revenue grew 27%, reflecting the addition of NEP, strong growth in our Energy Efficiency Services segment, increased traction in our cross-sell efforts, near record performance from our Wholesale team, and new customer wins across our Retail Energy Procurement business. World Energy's fundamentals and long-term outlook remain strong, and our results continue to validate our transition from an auction-based, procurement-only company to one offering a broader range of energy management services.
